The war with the Kilrathi has lasted for generations, now the Terran Confederation faces the possibility of humanity losing the war, and Earth being over-run by the cat-like race of the Kilrathi. In a desperate attempt to win, the Terran Confederation prepares to destroy Kilrah; the Kilrathi home-world, and end the war. But only one man is qualified; Colonel Christopher Blair (Mark Hamill), who the Kilrathi have dubbed "The Heart of the Tiger".

Originally, Mark Hamill
was being considered for Maniac rather than Blair. Chris Roberts
was having trouble casting Blair, and after meeting Hamill, he realized that the man who played Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars film franchise would be an ideal choice to play the hero of this game, so the part was offered to Hamill and he accepted. See more

The Playstation version also includes Hobbes' confession to Blair about being the traitor. This was also dramatized in the novelization. In both, Ralga nar Hallas explains that when Prince Thrakkath spoke the words, "Heart of the Tiger", his hypnotic trance (Which he had been under since 'defecting' in Wing Commander 1) was broken and he became Ralga once again, with all his memories and loyalties intact.
