Wing Commander IV Demo
The war between the alien Kilrathi Empire and the Terran Confederation has been over for several years. Confed is attempting to stabilize its economy and social structure. The Kilrathi survivors, now led by Melek nar Kiranka, retainer to the late Prince Thrakhath, are having greater problems than they had during the war, since their racial and societal makeup revolves around hunting and killing. Tension between the Confederation and the Union of Border Worlds has deepened, most recently with an attack on an unarmed medical transport.
The WC Saga team created this demo
of a few Wing Commander IV missions in the FSO engine to help promote their mod back in 2007. It is still a fun little mod, so here it is refreshed for use with the FSO build of WC Saga!
