It is several years after mankind's war against the Kilrathi. Col. Christopher Blair is called back into duty by the Terran Confederation to help stop acts of terrorism that appear to be taking place against Confed by Border Worlds forces.
Many of the star systems in the game are named after characters in Greek mythology, such as Nephele, Silenus, Orestes, Peleus, Circe, Telamon, Axius, Ella and Talos. As for some of the others, Tyr is the Norse god of war, Hellespont was the ancient Greek name for the Dardanelles strait and Callimachus was an ancient Greek poet.

The lower row of medal ribbons on Eisen's Confed uniform change to the other way around when Paulsen arrives on the Lexington and remain this way from this point onwards.

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.
