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

The characters who originally appeared in the computer games are: Blair, Maniac, Angel, Paladin, Admiral Tolwyn, Hunter, Knight and Lt. Cdr. "Bossman" Chen (the unseen dead pilot whose name is written on the side of the fighter Blair sits in when he first meets Angel). Captain Sansky, Commander Gerald, Rosie Forbes, and Obutu weren't in the games. Other things carried over from the games include the ship names TCS Tiger Claw (called the Tiger's Claw in the game), TCS Concordia, Diligent, Snakeir, Rapier, Broadsword, Hornet, and Dralthi.

While it makes excellent action for a movie, a hull breach wouldn't crush and push a canister through the small opening in the outer airlock door as shown. After all, the ship is pressurized to 1 atmosphere (which is only around 14.5 pounds force per square inch) and therefore lacks the power to crush. The real danger is in being caught and asphyxiating in a sealed room that depressurizes and not getting "sucked out to space". See more »
I regret to report that all diplomatic avenues with the Kilrathi have been exhausted. It is now clear they have no interest in coexisting with us or any other race. It is my sad duty to inform you that as of 6 A.M. this morning, we are formally at war with the Kilrathi. God help us all.

The film was originally shot with a sub-plot involving Admiral Bill Wilson as the traitor that compromised the Pegasus station. There were a number of scenes between Wilson and Bokoth, the commander of the Kilrathi battle group, but since the Kilrathi puppets weren't realistic enough this sub-plot had to be cut out. There was also a knife fight on board the Kilrathi ConCom between Blair and Commander Gerald. Wilson goaded the two into the fight but when they decided to cut the traitor sub-plot the scene was edited so that Wilson never appeared in it. However, after a test screening with the knife fight, the viewer reaction to the edited scene was mainly confusion so the fight was ultimately cut out. If you look closely, when Paladin gives Blair his Pilgrim Cross Blair has a bandage on his hand. This was because Gerald wounded him in the knife fight. Blair used his Pilgrim Cross knife to kill Admiral Wilson and basically end the fight, proving to Gerald his loyalty to the Confederation. See more »
I finally gave into my curiosity and rented "Wing Commander" last night... and I found myself kinda... you know... liking it.
It is NOT great cinema or great science fiction -- everyone likes to climb all over this movie for scientific errors and not being close enough to the Wing Commander games. Well, scientific inaccuracies don't bug me (I'm an English major!), and I never played the Wing Commander game. Maybe that's the secret to enjoying this movie -- if you take it completely on its (meager) merits, it's not all that bad. It's nowhere near as good as classics like "Star Wars" or even somewhat similar films like "The Last Starfighter" or "Starship Troopers," but it entertained me. I dunno, sometimes you don't need your horizons challenged, you just want to sit back and watch aliens get blow'd up real good, you know?
I consider this a guilty pleasure.
