That depends if you won or lost in episode 3 (which is, admittedly, somewhat hard to tell on the losing path, because in either case, you jump to Sirius - so you gotta pay attention to the music during the jump-out scene). Episode 4 has two separate intros - one for the winning path, and one for the losing path. Additionally, the losing path intro is slightly different depending on whether you played the losing or winning path of episode 3, but it's a very slight difference - I wouldn't want to get into the habit of making four different intros per episode, after all .Crazy J said:Say, do we get a different introduction to episode four if we survive episode three's losing track? I ended up going down that path just a few minutes ago - ironically, I found it easier than the winning track... but that's me.
And yes, the losing path is not necessarily harder than the winning path. They are simply different. I mean, fighting alone against a Kilrathi cruiser in a backwater system might seem like it should be hard... but would it really be harder than taking on a Kilrathi fleet carrier during one of the greatest battles ever fought in the 27th century?
