Freedom at Point Zero is a 1979 album by Jefferson Starship. It was the first album for new lead singer Mickey Thomas, and the first after both Marty Balin and Grace Slick left the prior year (Slick rejoined the band for their next album Modern Times in 1981). Aynsley Dunbar plays drums on this album; he had left Journey the previous year. The album cover was shot on location in the San Francisco Bay on board theUSCGC Midgett (WHEC-726).

The single "Jane" peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at #14, and spent three weeks at #6 on the Cash Box Top 100. "Jane" was featured in the 2009 video game Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, as well as the opening music to the film Wet Hot American Summer and its prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. It is also notable for being one of the few songs that is performed live today by both the Paul Kantner-led Jefferson Starship and the Mickey Thomas-led Starship. The song "Lightning Rose" predicts the concept of the Nuclear Furniture album, and in fact its character Lightning Rose would return on Nuclear Furniture as the key character in that album's concept.
