This article discusses specifically material related to the Movie universe. Primarily the movie and the Handbook, and the novels. The novels are technically more connected to the Novel timeline and the Game timeline (as they pull directly backstories in the game manuals), although the novels do reference a few minor details from the Handbook (there are several discrepancies in character names and dates between the two sources). Star*Soldier also tied more into a mix of the novels, handbook, and movie.

Movie Scene OrderEdit

The movie is light on specific dates, and references, and follows a different order than the novels (which are more directly tied into the game/novel/manual universe). This section breaks down the order of movie events by scene, and given in-movie military time.

Movie ScenesEdit

Pilgrims begin exploring space.
Pilgrims jump pulsars for the last time.


Start of the Kilrathi War.
.74 (March 15)
0900 hours (Zulu Time) :Pegasus Asteroid base Is destroyed.
0023:21 15

Concordia battlegroup, 18 hours from earth.


  1. Wilson's birthdate in the Handbook is 2498, which would make him almost 150 years old in the movie! Star*Soldier notes this is likely due to advanced Confederatiom medicine.

In the Handbook, the book gives several histories and conflicting dates for when the Pilgrim War/s began or ended. At least one reference says a war ended 2629, another spot says it began in 2631 and ended in 2635. Another section says a war began in 2635 and ended in 2639. The Pilgrim Alliance is said to have been devolved or implied to have been defeated in 2629, 2635, and 2639.

The novels makes references to Pilgrim War ending twenty years before the events of the books or about 2634.

The Handbook and the Novel gives out two different dates for when Bengal-class strike carrier/carrier was developed. The novel chose to reference the continuity of Wing Commander I for the Strike Carrier as mentioned in Claw Marks. The shakedown flight in 2644 is a date taken from the WC1 Claw Marks as well, as is the delaying action of 2649, and reference to Custer's Carnival.

A ring had been in Tolwyn's family for sixteen generations[88].A generation is 25 years (according to the handbook). This would place it about 2254 (by that calculation), however the novel places it in 1941 (the shooting script of the movie also notes this).

Angel blocked out a memory when she was 4 or 5 years old.[89] At sixteen Mikhail left her for the marines.[90] She learned of his death six months later. She had owned Pierre for ten years before the dog died.[91]

Bellegarde appears to have been given two birthdates (between the handbook and the novels). Bellegarde cut off an affair he had been having for three years, he had been married to his wife Melissa for twenty-one years.[92]

There are at least two different "death" dates given for the character of "Chen" in the Handbook and the Novel. Four days before the movie in the handbook, and around the same time Pegasus was destroyed in the novel.

James' family are said have died in 2613 in the Handbook, but Pilgrim Truth may suggest they actually survived up to 2632. Note that first event occurs in a period which records were suspiciously destroyed, and the second occurs in a period when Taggart's whereabouts were relatively 'classified' and he was working independently within Intelligence.

Both Pilgrim Stars, and the first few chapters of Pilgrim Truth overlaps the starting date of Enyo during the Vega Campaign in Wing Commander I (or starting date of any campaign in the game), 2654.110.

2654.110 is just the publication date of Claw Marks in Super Wing Commander, not necessarily the date of Enyo or any other campaign.

Wing Commander I and II: The Ultimate Strategy Guide references would seemingly puts Enyo well after the movie timeline around late august to early September (around .222). Venice ends around .287 the campaign occurs between August and October. However, the extended LaFong timeline from the bible, starts Enyo series around .085 or well before the .110 date from the game (the .110 date is seemingly ignored by most sources other than being the publishing date for the Claw Marks issue).
