Sometimes you will have to face unexpected events such as losing contact, or subspace disruptions preventing units from moving. A good leader will be able to use them to weaken the military potential of the enemy and to deal him as great damage as possible. The battle in the world of Freespace is won by the player who destroys the greatest number of units and takes control over the key areas located near the jump holes at the lowest cost.

At your disposal you will have a possibility to command the Terran war machine which bases on the experience derived from two previous conflicts as well as on the past bloody history. The next is the Vasudan fleet, for which defending its own heritage became top priority after when the Shivan superdestroyer wiped out their homeworld. Finally, you might choose Shivans themselves, whose targets and origin remain equally unknown.
