In the 2nd book of the WING COMMANDER series, Blair investigates an attack on Mylon 3. It is obvious, the fanatical Pilgrim rebels are up to their old tricks, subverting warriors and fighting the Confederation. With the fate of Earth hanging in the balance, Blair delivers himself into enemy hands to understand and pre-empt the murderous plot.

And thats just the movie novel.
Pilgrim Stars takes place immedately after the movie (I suggest reading the movie novel adaption as enough has been changed to make some minor confusion) and takes off at incredible speed. In fact, the Pilgrim heritage scenario that was bandied about in the film for no particular reason (other than bad plot) is incredibly (and trust me when I say that) brought to breathing, pulse pounding life. Things that were mentioned for twenty seconds in the movie are suddenly alive with movement. Much of the dialouge is sly and a bit cutting in some scenes, especially with the AI character Merlin.
I recommend this book to those looking for an interesting read and anyone willing to give the WC: Movie world a second chance.
Oh and Mr Telep? I'd like help on my script!
The core of this book revolves around the Pilgrims of both the game and the movie. And while the 'mythology' of the Pilgrims in the movie left you scratching your head, it is fully explained here. Not only is it explained, it is expanded upon. Familiar characters are drawn up into the web of deceit and intrigue where old lovers reveal desperate plans and forbidden relationships threaten to ruin new ones.
And this book isn't only for Wing Commander fans. I have never played the game, yet I understood everything. The technical explanations were concise and easy to understand, yet complex enough to carry their meaning with one word.
I cannot say enough how much I recommend this book. If you're a fan of good sci-fi, buy this book!
