I was recently watching the Wing Commander film again for probably the 10th time in a couple of years and there is something that keeps on bugging me. When the camera pans over the Pegasus Base you can clearly see a ship departing the base. Now from what i heard in the film the shipwas called the TCS McClellan and was on it's way to earth. What i want to know is when the Kilrathi Battlegroup attacked had the McClellan left already or was it destroyed because Tolwyn then asks if there are any ships left in Vega and only the Tiger Claw is mentioned. So did the McClellan make it to the Charybdis Quasar or was she destroyed in the attack?
