My whole life, I've taken crap because I'm part Pilgrim. And I don't know why.

WW2 in space
I love SF
I own just about every SF movie made and have read upwards of 5000 SF titles. Wing Commander is a brilliant work of pulp war fiction based on WW2. Star ships with carrier decks. fighters with wings. torpedoes. Depth charging. Fighter cannons shooting bullets 'in space'. Hand loaded gun mounts.
And the science/.. how cheesy can you get.
The acting is above par for this type of flick. Prochnow is good and David Suchet outdoes all as captain.. what a great actor.
It all works.. And brilliantly. great music.. real nice graphics for the day -still stands up well today-
Star wars and the An*l Anti-SF BS Galactica bend over Wing Commander is here
MY all time favorites boys own SF romp
