Gamespot heeft een vette feature over de legendarische Wing Commander serie, beginnende bij het eerste spel uit 1990 met 'revolutionaire VGA graphics' tot de Wing Commander film die we binnenkort kunnen verwachten:
"I wanted the film to start at the point where Blair and Maniac were just getting out of the academy," he says, which meant Mark Hamill, who had portrayed Blair in the games, would be out in favor of a younger pilot. The challenge in writing the script was to be faithful to the series, yet make the plot and characters approachable for the masses. After months of work, Roberts approved a script that begins with a Kilrathi attack on a mobile Confederation naval base named Pegasus. During the attack, the Kilrathi steal a NavCom, a device used for interstellar navigation, which would provide the Kilrathi a direct path to Earth. Admiral Tolywn of the Confederation responds to the theft by sending an encrypted message to the spacecraft Diligent, which must in turn deliver it to the Tiger Claw, the only Confederation ship with a chance of saving Earth from a Kilrathi attack. On board the Diligent are two young and brazen fighter pilots, Blair (Prinze, Jr.) and Maniac (Matthew Lillard), who deliver the message to the Tiger Claw, meet their wing commander Angel Devereaux (Saffron Burrows) and fight the Kilrathi head-on attempting to retrieve the NavCom.
