Thanks for the good work. Were there any additions in 2015?

Just asking...since these are all campaigns within the freespace universe, Should I play them know any particular order? I'm almost finished my first playthrough of the freespace port ( descent: freespace) . I expect to start silent threat within the next few days

Some of these campaigns take place in altered or different timelines. For some, the timeline doesn't matter.

This list also doesn't include such staples as Silent Threat: Reborn, Blue Planet, or Just Another Day. (JAD, is kind of a Freespace, not Freespace campaign, but it's really good. It plays with HLP's history more than anything and that can be learned by playing many of these older campaigns.)

Once you had your fill of Freespace, you can check out our Total Conversions, Diaspora, Wings of Dawn, etc.

TL;DR, just pick a campaign and play it. Then pick another. There's far too many things worth playing at HLP to focus lining up the timelines, IMO.

I have a certain timeline suggestion, but it requires that you have basic gameplay skills that you have learned from official tutorials. I have played almost all of these so most of them should work with modern builds.

ANCIENT ERA
1) Ancient-Shivan War Act 1
2) Ancient-Shivan War Act 2
3) Ancient-Shivan War Act 3 (only a couple of single missions available)

PRE FS1 ERA
4) The Unification war
5) Cardinal Spear
6) Frontlines 2334

FS 1 ERA
7) FS1 Official campaign
((8) Bem Cavalgar around the time of Vasuda Prime in FS1. Problems with modern builds however!))
9) Silent Threat: Reborn
10) Shrouding the light
11) Operation Templar (inside FSport, converted from multiplayer campaign)

MID ERA
12) Between the Ashes (A full release in a few days!!!)
13) Operation Savior
14) Pandora's Box

FS 2 ERA
15) FS2 official campaign
16) Fall of Epsilon Pegasi
17) Vassago's Dirge

POST FS 2 ERA
18) Transcend (play on very easy just for the sake of story!)
19) Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius
20) Blue Planet: War in Heaven 1 (acts 1&2)
21) Blue Planet: War in Heaven 2 (act 3)

FS 3 ERA
22) Freespace 3: The Search for Bosch
Spoiler:
(nah, I'm just kidding... Or am I?? >=D)

This continuity is somewhat coherent and faithful to the original material.

There are, of course other great POST FS2 ERA campaigns that are mutually exclusive. Here are a couple of suggestions:
23) Shadow Genesis (A very good alternative to BP. A long campaign with a satisfying ending)
24) Derelict (Old but gold. Also very long)

There are couple of high quality POST FS2 ERA campaigns just waiting to be released. Follow these:
25) Inferno: Nostos
26) Exile

Now that you have gone through quite a many campaigns, you may enjoy referential humor in:
27) Just another day: series (very high quality, still getting new content)
28) Deus ex Machina: interlude
29) Ridiculous: Director's cut

A few high quality mods independent of Freespace storyline
30) The Antagonist
31) Wings of Dawn (old mod and new standalone)
32) Dimensional Eclipse
33) Windmills (might have problems with newer builds)

Then of course the standalones:
34) The Babylon Project
35) Diaspora
36) Wing Commander Saga
37) Star Fox: Event Horizon

The basic canonical FS timeline if we speak of campaigns is:

Freespace 1
Silent Threat (Reborn is actually a campaign made by fans in order to well... make ST at least playable. I'm suggesting you to play Reborn instead of the original.)
Operation Templar (Rather optional 4 missions)
Freespace 2

I took the opportunity of making my own list of good FSPort campaigns - because while there are very many of them, most of them were made as expansions to original FS1, I think back in '99, and well... I suppose they do not meet the criteria for "enjoyable" right now. So, my list:

Aftermath (2.0),
Awakenings,
Bem Cavalgar,
Cardinal Spear (as mentioned before),
Crucible,
Destiny of Peace,
Eagle Takes Flight,
Hellgate Ikeya,
Light of Antares (1.1),
Rain on Ribos 4,
Shivans (Phantoms & Echo Gate)
Shrouding The Light,
Tango.

It's a mix of Great War and Reconstruction era campaigns, but I think all of the inform the player of the place in the timeline they take place in.

@Lykurgos88: I think you forgot about some classics like Sync, Homesick... Perhaps also Rogues! and Sol: A History (a bit harder to find actually, it's also old, but interesting... i think.)

If you look for more campaigns, just go to the Campaign List on Hard Light Wiki. The list is pretty outdated, but there are many great campaigns there.
God dammit, we need to do something with the campaign list...
