What's the WC connection?

Ok... What does this film have anything to do with Wing Commander? It's not Wing Commander, and it isn't even closely related.

First off, why are you asking this at all? Did you not notice that you are posting in an Outlander sub-forum?

Second, I believe we've explained this a number of times alread but for everyone elses sake, we'll explain it again here:

Outlander is Produced by Chris Roberts, creator of the Wing Commander franchise. Chris is head of the company that produced the movie too - Ascendant Pictures.

Beyond that, there are at least three other people who worked on Outlander that are Wing Commander vets. John Hurt, who plays king Rothgar in Outlander, was in Privateer 2. Ron Perlman, who plays Gunnar in Outlander, voiced a character in the Wing Commander animated series. There's at least one other connection in the crew list but I can't remember it off-hand.

Now why do we have an Outlander site and forum on solsector? Because it just sounds like a crazy/cool movie. It just seems like such an insane idea that it just could be amazing so we have high hopes. And whether the film has vikings or not you should agree that sci-fi interstellar conflict is right in Mr. Roberts' milieu.

@Kevin: Sometimes it's not the question but how you ask.
