Trivia

Game setting

Renegade is actually a licensed adaptation of FASA's Renegade: Interceptor boardgame. Unfortunately, FASA has dropped this entire universe (which used to include hover tanks, space fighters, and space capital ship battles) in favor of more lucrative universes like Battletech.

Cancelled sequel

SSI's catalog for the second half of 1995 lists a sequel called Renegade: Return to Jacob's Star, promising 50 new missions, 2 new Renegade ships (Peacekeeper and Defiant), one new TOG ship (Legati class) and head-to-head modem play. It was never released.
