| High point of the series
This is the high point for the videos of the entire Wing Commander series, and the computer games in general. Films using real Hollywood techniques and an astronomical (for computer games) budget, we got the best video sequences ever seen on a computer screen, and even better on its DVD version.

Did You Know?


Originally Chris Roberts only intended the Wing Commander series to be a trilogy, but due to the success of the previous game and Electronics Arts not selling enough other computer games, he was asked to make a fourth game. However he was only given one year to make it, whereas he would have preferred two years in order to develop a new "engine" for the game. Wing Commander IV uses the same game engine as Wing Commander III i.e. the gameplay and overall design of the game is similar, but with enhanced graphics. Roberts tried to compensate for this for focusing more on the storytelling with more live action cutscenes than in the previous game.


Maniac: I guess women out here on the edge of nowhere can't appreciate a civilised man.
Blair: Sure they do. When they meet one.
Maniac: Good to see you too, Colonel, or should I say Farmer Blair? Glad you could fit me into your busy schedule.
Blair: It's a peaceful life.
Maniac: I've ...


When Blair and the other pilots on the Lexington watch a news interview with Admiral Tolwyn, a close-up shot of the screen shows that it is clearly a 1990s Panasonic cathode-ray tube television. The story is set in the 27th century. Although it's been placed inside some casing, the whole front of the TV is undisguised and the Panasonic logo and buttons can be seen. In other scenes TVs and monitors are better disguised.

Alternate Versions

After destroying or disabling the Lexington, we see a cut scene of Seether and Captain Paulson escaping in a shuttle. On the original PC six disc release we get a close up of Seether cutting Paulson's throat. However, on the Playstation and DVD version we get an alternate take where Paulson's 'execution' takes place just out of view. Also, Seether tells Paulson to "Stop whining" in this alternate take. The original close up take is viewable on the DVD version by accessing the video file directly on the DVD disc.
