I remember a movie, or maybe pilot episode of a show that involved spaceships that looked like old pirate ships with sails?
The lead character was inheriting his father's legacy or something; his old ship and gear.. A cool laser sword; "when the blade glows red, it can cut through Anything.." and a ring that could either make a shield (maybe sort of eagle shaped?) or deliver a power punch..
I think he crashed his ship looking for this stuff, and wanted to convert the old ship to be spaceworthy.. Seem to remember him asking his first mate if they had 'enough to make her fly?'
This has been driving me crazy for years.. Somebody must know this?!
