False Colors marks the end of the Baen Books' line of Wing Commander novels. Andrew Keith, who died unexpectedly shortly after the books publication, had tentative plans for a pair of sequels to False Colors (involving Prince Murragh's return to power and then a war between the Landreich and the Confederation). More information (including an interview with the authors and a preview chapter!) can be found here.

MORE WAR . . .
 A desperate attack on the Kilrathi homeworld had
succeeded in destroying the entire planet, including
the Emperor and his warlords. The surviving Kilrathi,
on warships and on their colony worlds were
hopelessly demoralized and had sued for peace. The
catlike warrior race was no longer a threat to Earth and
its colonies. Thirty-five years of war had finally come to
an end, bringing peace in our time. They thought. . . .
 The reality was more ominous. There were still
plenty of independent Kilrathi warlords surviving,
commanding a formidable array of warships and
weaponry. Some wanted revengve on the apes who had
destroyed the sacred homeworld, some wanted to set
up their own new empires, and some were simply
content to go pirate, raiding human colonies at will.
But back on Earth, the war-weary people and their
leaders turned a deaf ear to reports of Kilrathi
belligerence, preferring to look forward to a peaceful
and prosperous future.
 But it was only the calm before a new storm. . . .
