Did You Know?

Two of the testifiers in the end sequence are minor characters from the game. The man who says "You saw the results," was the doctor from Telemon, and the man who says "The honorable Admiral Towlyn" is the ex-pilot you meet in the bar at the beginning.See more »
Continuity: Maniac and Vagabond don't wear any medal ribbons on their Confed uniforms, when in the previous game they did. Yet Blair still does, the same amount as he had before (3). Eisen and Tolwyn also have medals, each a slightly higher amount than they did before.See more »
Maniac:[the young officers are all starstruck by Blair, who is famous for ending the Kilrathi war] All hail, the mighty Heart of Tiger! You know, you're not the only war hero in Confed, I've taken out more cats than most ships' entire attachments. Do I get the red carpet treatment? No, I carry my own duffel bag, I don't go schmoozing with the Admiral.
[in a fawning voice]
Maniac:Admiral Tolwyn, Tolwyn, Tol... has he said anything about me?
Blair:You haven't heard? He couldn't stop talking about you, Maniac.
Blair:Well, it's classified. I mean I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

One of the best FMV Simulation games in PC Gaming history., 14 September 1999
Author: Nash Bridges from Los Angeles, California

I while ago, I wasnt really into PC Gaming, I'd sit down and play solitare once and a while, but not really much anything else, it was all for work. I went to Fry's Electronics once, and started brousing around the computer game section, and I saw "Wing Commander IV" I glanced at the back, to get some general ideas as to what it looked like. "Mark Hamill, Tom Wilson, John-Rhys Davies, Malcom McDowell" These were (at the time) all big Hollywood names. I said "ahhh, hell with it." and I spent 39.99 on what I found out was one of the most well directed and produced games I'd ever play. These days, we have much more advanced games, with their 3d surround sound, and their OpenGL 3d accelleration drivers.... but this, this had a STORY. Not just "your mission. Go and kill those things" It had an immersive story line, and rather incredable graphics for it's time. I found it amazing that you could actually choose your path, you could make Colonel Blair (played by Mark Hamill) say "this" or "that" and other characters in the game would respond however he acted. The bottom line is, if you've never played this game. Get it now. Hell, it's probably 9.99 in some places. So go ahead, go out to your local store, and BUY IT! It's worth the money.
