    Walking Down Memory Lane: Wing Commander

    Bought this movie in Blu-ray a couple of months ago and just watched it last night for the first time (on BR, seen it before) and boy did it bring back a lot of memory!

    -First was Origin System...I had forgotten this name already and when I saw it on the opening credits began to think about Sir Richard Garriott, a.k.a Lord British. Played all the games in his Ultima series starting with Ultima 2 on my Commodore 64. Played 3 next and 4. I think soon after 4 or 5 was released did Origin release Ultima 1 for the C64. Ah, good times...specially the long nights trying to kill trolls, demons, and goblins.

    -Next were the names of the ships in Wing Commander...The Tiger Claw and Concordia. Didn't recall Pegasus, other than the one from Battlestar Galactica.

    -Finally, the characters' names...Angel, Maniac, Paladin, Hunter, etc. I think I actually got Hunter killed once.

    Geez, it was a long time ago that I played these games and still, now, it brings back good memories...or at least memories of having fun playing these games back then.

    Yeah, I think it was one that kind of slipped by and didn't make much of a noise at the box office.

    Didn't Mark Hamill get involved with this series as a voice over for one of the characters in the games? Would have been nice if he had a cameo in the movie.
