Re: Star Ship Polaris

The name "Polaris," FTW, tracks back to childhood antecedents in The Space Explorers and Tom Corbett (never saw the series as a child, that I can remember, but I owned the first volume in the series of books that Grossett and Dunlap spun off from it).

There are about a thousand other referents for the name as well, I'm sure, but those two are where I got it from.
