It would be worth it for a live-action Hall Fight.
Some reason I'm remembering the boarding party scene from the Wing Commander movie right now... not very awesome.
That movie had suck-ass sfx and cinematography. If there's one thing I remember about it, it's not being able to tell what the aliens actually looked like when I watched it the first time because there was so much green aboard their ships. I had to pause the damn video just to figure out "oh hey, they be giant, hairless, plantigrade cats."
The technology has greatly advanced, so even if the director is an incompetent wank and can't do decent filming to save his ass, as long as he sticks to the original, a live-action Hall Fight will be awesome.
Personally, if they do try something with FS, I feel they actually have a lot of room to improvise; the only things the games define are background universe, ftl method, fighter and ship-to-ship combat. All we need are some competent writers, a decent producer and a good director. Though given my exposure to SyFy's material (I guess I had the bad luck to catch all the crap shows, save BSG), I humbly request they stay the hell away from FS and let someone else with better skillz do it. Or get the BSG crew to do it. I would love to hear a Bear McCreary version of M5: Spook.
Did anyone else find it strange that in Wing Commander there were pilots
running what should've been a marine
