Game Time: Wing Commander Academy (1996)

Wing Commander Academy, a short lived USA Network cartoon series produced by Universal, was spun off from the Wing Commander video game series, but only got one season as part of USA's Action Extreme Team cartoon block, the follow-up to Cartoon Express.

Despite a star-laden cast that included Mark Hamill, Dana Delany, and Malcolm McDowell, Academy was met with viewer indifference, and quickly cancelled after 1 season. I think that was the end of 1st-run animation on the network. The live-action "Wing Commander" movie with Freddie Prinze, Jr. followed a couple of years later.

Didn't see the show, so there won't be a rating. We'll leave you with the series opener.
