Unusually, Casey is placed in command of his flight: Stiletto intends to test the rookie pilot's reputation and see if he is up to the challenge when under pressure.
The Kilrathi also withhold assistance at a later juncture if Casey attacks them. The first one, the Midway herself, is undergoing her shakedown cruise, with Blair along for the ride. Match your wits and skill in space combat against an all-new alien threat whose coming was foretold by an ancient Kilrathi prophecy of the end of the universe.

The explosions are really awesome, and I reminded me of Star Wars Special Edition the movie.
When you fire a missle and get a direct hit, you can actually see parts of the ship fly off and trails of smoke and debris that is how realistic it is! A Game Boy Advance port of Prophecy with added multiplayer was released in 2003.

The game also lacks significant dialogue choices to make, and hence, storyline branches.

The bleak black space of previous chapters has been replaced by a more visually dazzling backdrop, filled with colorful gasses and treacherous asteroids. It's true that the game introduces a new crew of characters, and some old favorites - such as Blair and Maniac, played by Mark Hamill and Tom Wilson, respectively - are still around.

When one of Maniac's patrols is ambushed by a horde of such ships, Casey has to sortie out to save them as well. The last two Wing Commander chapters have seen gameplay give way to lengthy expository film sequences, with missions often seeming like no more than a way to kill time until the next big plot point. While that fact alone isn't too much of a problem, it is a problem when the designers string two of these missions together without giving you a chance to save in between.
Take your place among the best and brightest at Starfleet Academy!
