The first Wing Commander novel, Freedom Flight was released in 1992 by Baen Books. It was outlined by famed fantasy novel author Mercedes Lackey, and written by Origin employee Ellen Guon, author of the scripts for Secret Missions 2, Wing Commander II, and Special Operations 1 and 2. The two would later go on to write several books together.

The plot is set during the events of Secret Missions 2: Crusade, as Ralgha nar Hhallas, Kilrathi nobleman, Fleet captain and Ghorah Khar underground rebel, is tasked to defect with his ship to further the rebellion against the Emperor. The subsequent story follows four main characters: James "Paladin" Taggart, Confed special ops agent; Kirha, a young Kilrathi retainer; Ian "Hunter" St. John, Confederation fighter pilot, and K'Kai, Firekkan pilot and patriot.
