Campaign Description

As the Great War rages on, you've been commissioned by Galactic Terran Intelligence for special intelligence operations. Your objectives are to contain the Shivan onslaught and preserve the fragile Terran-Vasudan alliance. But a series of suspicious events cloud the GTI's spotless record. Is the GTI setting you up or are the Shivans spreading their evil rage?

  • An immersive story that remains true to the original, yet is far more fleshed out
  • Supports many of the newest features in FSO yet is compatible with FS2 retail
  • Fully voice acted

Player Comments

The degree of thought, care, and polish put into ST:R is staggering. There is not a filler mission to be found anywhere in this campaign. The designers are amongst the most seasoned veterans of the Freespace community, and their attention to detail and nuance arguably exceeds that of the original Volition designers. In fact, Silent Threat Reborn represents the closest the community has ever seen to another Volition entry in the Freespace universe. It hews closely to the tried-and-true Freespace narrative structure, it explains all the major discrepancies between Freespace 1 and Freespace 2, and it even finds time to work in compatibility with Shrouding the Light. As if its narrative strengths weren't enough, the FREDding includes some real gems, including the blood-curdling He Who Rides the Tiger and Abandon Hope. Superb voice acting and a lovingly crafted bundle of easter eggs round out this magnum opus. ST:R is an exemplar of pure Freespace craft. And for goodness sake, listen to your wingmen!
