Terran Confederation pilots are a diverse and precise group of hi-tech warriors who strive for overachievement in everything that they do. To fly a top-of-the-line space fighter against the Kilrathi requires an individual with a well-balanced combination of intellect, discipline, talent, confidence, maturity, and ego. The competition to become a Confed fighter pilot is fierce, and it has to be: 27th Century fighter combat against the Kilrathi is even fiercer.
The game and complimentary fiction from the Wing Commander Saga Prologue introduces the main character and several members from his flight training class. Instructed by veterans rotated from the front, the main character makes new friends and mentors as he learns to hone his skills in the safety of Confederation space.
