* HeAlsoDid: The cast is ''made'' of this. [[BeverlyHills90210 Ian Ziering]] as Trent, Creator/JenniferHale as Juni, [[LordOfTheRings John Rhys-Davies]] as Tobias, not to mention appearances from Creator/CreeSummer, Creator/GeorgeTakei, Creator/XanderBerkeley, MauriceLaMarche, Creator/CoreyBurton, Creator/JeffBennett, [[Series/TheNanny Charles Shaughnessy]], Creator/TonyJay (who literally has exactly ''one'' line) and ''Creator/ChristopherLee'', who also has a bit part at best.
** Also applies to the designers: one of the people who did character designs is Carlos Ezquerra, one of the co-creators of ComicBook/JudgeDredd and ComicBook/StrontiumDog. The character designs in the finished game, particularly Trent, have his signature gritty style.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In addition to the stuff that was promised, which were eventually taken out, such as dynamic economies and retracting ship fins, much of ''Freelancer'''s original storyline was scrapped when Microsoft tried to speed up the game's release. Anyone who owns a copy of the Bonus DVD, bundled with the game's soundtrack CD, will have full knowledge of what the original storyline was meant to be.
** Freelancer 2.
