Wing Commander wasn't that bad, I quite liked it, at least it got the spaceflight mechanics of sub light travel reasonably accurate. Better ythan most movies do.

lastbesthope said:Sonar might work in soace, if the ships have an exhaust. As JMS points out in one of the B5 commentaries, the JPL guys told him an exploding ship would make a noise as the atmosphere expanded with the explosion shockwave. now I reason something similar would happen with any exhaust gases, and since all the engines in WC rely on ejecting mass, that means there will be a detectable 'noise' from the exhaust plume.
So Sonar would kind of work, but not in the manner suggested in the movie.
