The Last Starfighter: Interesting Tidbits

We re-watched The Last Starfighter recently. If you haven’t seen it, you should check it out on the new 25th Anniversary edition DVD. We got ours from the public library.

With the re-watch I noticed a few new details, so I’ll share them with you:

  1. Grig is one seriously manipulative mo-fo.
  2. The whole Kodan War is really just a cover for the generational fight between Xur and his dad (the leader of the Rylans).
  3. The Rylans are, apparently, the technological backbone of the Star League. They built the Frontier and recruit all of the Starfighters, so this isn’t much of a surprise.
  4. The Kodan are some kind of strange bifurcated species. The commanders have completely different facial features than the drone/underlings (specifically noses). Unless those were females, in which case I’m glad I’m not a Kodan.
  5. Marc Alaimo (aka Gul Dukat on DS9) was totally wasted as the hitchhiker/Zandozan-in-disguise.
