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

While generally unrealistic, one flaw in the space-fighting is especially obvious. In several scenes the fighters can be seen starting from the Tiger's Claw very similar to modern jet-fighters starting off aircraft-carriers. This includes the slight drop shortly after leaving the ship. In space, and thus without gravity, the fighters should have started smoothly and in a straight line. See more »

Now that was a sweet 360!
Actually, that was a 540.
Did you just do that to impress me?
I'm just trying to redirect some of that testosterone. You're a total... Maniac.

People are way too hard on this movie. The acting is better than average and action is awesome. This alone makes up for the weak plot and so so special effects. And it moves at such a pace that it is impossible to be bored unlike Star Wars Episode 1 where I sat through that entire pod race scene wondering when it was going to end. I'm not saying that this is better than Star Wars but I could watch this movie over and over which is something I couldn't say for Star Wars. (***/****)
