Combining the earnest plots of World War 2 films with an original sci-fi setting inspired by Star Trek and Star Wars, the Wing Commander games were a load of space sim fun. The Terran Confederation waged a years long battle against the evil feline Kilrathi alien race. Wing Commander’s music is equal parts bold, brassy, and tense.

So, climb into your spaceship and prepare for takeoff. It's time to listen to some of classic tracks from the Wing Commander computer games.
