Based on a series of space fighter computer games, Wing Commander is a relic of the era when some studio exec thought Freddie Prinze Jr. was a viable star. It was a short-lived era indeed.
Prinze Jr. took over the series’ lead role, Lt. Christopher Blair — a character played in computer game cut scenes, by Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. Alongside him were Saffron Burrows and Matthew Lilard. The only thing less underwhelming than the cast was its Star Wars-lite battle scenes.
