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

This was one of only three films that was released with the theatrical trailer for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999). Many people paid admission to see the trailer and then walked out of the theater. See more »
There's no reference to Blair losing/not wearing his Pilgrim Cross, but he says he doesn't have it when he's asked to jump into Sol to warn the fleet. (In a scene that was deleted, he killed Admiral Wilson aboard the ConCom with the cross and left it with the body.) See more »
Merlin was also mean't to be Blair's private digital companionmentor. The character was supposed to add comic relief to the film but it was decided that Maniac could fill that position, so Merlin was relegated to a background computer system onboard the fighters. See more »
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The graphics weren't up to say Episode1 standards, but were convincing enough (and I loved the raspy engine noise for the Rapiers). The acting was what I've come to expect from these younger American actors (as in good).
I'd say from an objective view point it's a good film. A bit lacking in certain areas, but certainly enjoyable.
I say "objective" simply because I have never been exposed to the hugely popular game series, so I was seeing this as a film, not as a spin off (in which case I'm sure it would come across worse, simply because when you're used to one set of actors portraying your favourite characters a new team will never fit the bill).
Overall not a bad way to spend my Wednesday evening.
