In the mid-27th century, the Terran Confederation is at war with the felinoid Kilrathi Empire. After destroying a Terran base, the Kilrathi have seized a NAVCOM unit with the hyperspace jump coordinates to Earth. With Terran reinforcements scheduled to arrive two hours after the Kilrathi hit Earth, it falls upon the starfighter carrier TCS Tiger Claw to keep the Kilrathi busy. Written by

When Blair jumps into the Sol system tailed by the Snakir the scene switches to the waiting Concordia Battle group the marquee text gives their position as being in low orbit of Venus but the planet they appear to be orbiting is clearly Mars not Venus. See more »
You just plotted a jump through a gravity well in under 10 seconds. The Navcom can't do that.
That's not bad. I mean, that's not bad for the second best pilot in the Academy!
YOU SHUT UP! Next time you don't follow my orders I dump you with the rest of the garbage, you got that? You plot a course for the Tiger Claw, Mr Blair.

That guy's got a serious attitude problem.

First of all, I avoided this movie when it was first released because of the bad reviews. I never played the game so I had no idea what to expect.
I should know better...
I saw this movie for the first time on DVD, sat down with a low expectation, and cranked up my Dolby Digital 5.1 sound system. Was I ever BLOWN away! It was more than I expected and the characters were not as "forgettable" as some critics said. I found the performances of Tcheky Kanyo (Paladin) and David Warner (Admiral Tolwyn) were memorable. Saffron Burrows (Angel) was great, except that she handled her "crisis" at the end rather badly. But overall the movie was a treat. I would recommend it for anyone to at least rent this and check it out!
