DMJC reports that the Wing Commander movie will be showing in high definition on Yahoo! Channel 7 HD in Australia. It's a rare treat for the HD version of the film to show internationally, and it may yet be a while before the movie is released on Blu-ray. Catch it while you can! The broadcast is set for 3:00 pm Sunday (2:30 pm Adelaide).
Based on the best selling video game, WING COMMANDER is a science fiction-war movie spectacle. In the mid-27th century, the Terran confederation is at combat with the Kilrathi Empire. After destroying a Terran base, the Kilrathi have seized a NAVCOM unit that can coordinate hyperspace to Earth. With Terran reinforcements planned to arrive two hours after the Kilrathi strike Earth, it falls upon the star fighter carrier TCS Tiger Claw to keep the Kilrathi distracted.

Wing Commander Movie Model Rundown
Atherin has been busy recreating nearly every ship in the Wing Commander film using SketchUp. There's really not much missing - we don't see the Kilrathi Concom, Diligent or some of the small background items, but just about all of the other major stuff is there. It's a pretty nice lineup!
