If you ask me, I'd agree with you that the movie was FUBAR. The characters looked the way they did in Super Wing Commander, in fact nothing looks the way it did in the games,
So the characters look like they do in SWC (well, they don't... really, but if you think so...) yet nothing looks the way it did in the games...
and the story and script is full of continuity errors. They fly Rapiers, don't they? The game takes place after the events of the movie, and Angel ends up test flying Rapiers sometime around the middle of the game. But hey, things like this happen all the time. There are continuity holes in The X Files. There's the same gaping holes in one of the things that ranks right behind God to me as well, Resident Evil. So I don't know about not talking about them at length, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
You didn't even bother to think about that, did you? They're completely different versions of the Rapier. The Rapier in the movie is a freakishly old ship on it's way out. The Rapier II in the game, is a shiny nice new ship,
