For the community members working on the upgrade, check FreeSpace Campaign Restoration Project


The purpose of the Lightning Marshal project is to bring the FreeSpace community well-developed missions and campaign, across regular intervals. The missions and campaigns will be focused on one ship: The GTCv Actium, and occasionally its sistership, the GTCv Lysander. The missions will occasionally feature mods—new ships, weapons and other things, which need to be defined in *.tbl files. Those files will be listed in the Mods section of this article. The missions will also include new command briefing animations, and hopefully voice acting. Those files will be listed in the Dowloads section, along with the missions.

Part 1 by Spicious

The Actium goes against an NTF heavy warship - the NTD Liberty in this 3-mission campaign.

Part 2 by Spicious

The pilots of the 87th Space Cowboys are sent to guard a civilian convoy en route to the NTF-controlled system of Sirius. Little do they know that the NTF doesn't intend to sit by idly...

Part 3 by Stunaep

The Space Cowboys join the SOC while the Actium infiltrates the NTF on a top secret assignment. 13 action-packed missions, new music, cutscenes, and voice acting.

Part 4 by Stunaep

The NTF has gone one step too far. After the contestation of Alpha Centauri by rebel forces, Allied Command has pulled all ships from Vega and Aldebaran to conduct a massive strike at the NTF strongholds in Alpha Centauri. This will be the biggest strike since 2335. Meanwhile, another assignment is given for the Actium, one that will require going deep behind enemy lines...
