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

In the scene where Devereaux verifies Taggart rank on rapier console, the rapier communicates with the Tiger Claw to verify code punched in. The Tiger Claw was in Radiation field preventing any communications according to Rosie. 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.

A fun ride, not a serious one. A must for all fans of the game.
The film has been critically panned and it bombed at the cinemas. But it's actually a pretty good film. Yes it isn't technically the best, nor is it scientifically plausible. And for devotees of the games it kinda screws with history, but for all that it is a good ride. You watch it and appreciate it. Saffron Burrows is great. David Warner and David Suchet excel in their (small) roles. It's a shame John Rhys-Davis and Mark Hamill don't reprise their roles, but their replacements do well enough.
You get caught up in the story, and the visual effects are fantastic, aided by good acting with the actors working well together.
So overall I would recommend this film. Don't expect it to be fantastic, but just enjoy it. It's a fun film and a worthy addition to Wing Commander lore.
