    It was a joke between the actor and director in the first movie, when they didn't know there would be more movies. It was sort of spoofing Shatner, with the long pauses.

    There is a scene in the second movie when the Professor does his usual long pauses between words, while he's on the telephone, and the person on the other end asks if he's still there, totally mocking the character trait.

    The same actor, Josh Craig, plays the Professor (Monster of Phantom Lake, It Came From Another World) who becomes the Director of Rocket Command (Cave Women on Mars, Destination: Outer Space), as well as that character's son, Captain Jackson in Cave Women and Destination.

    It's toned down considerably for the Captain character, but still just as funny.

    I'd anticipate April or May of next year. He's great at putting out one a year. Also, if you search around for the Easter Eggs on that disc, you'll find a preview of which movie will be coming out next year. :devil:

    I said out, dammit!
    Turns out we have a mutual friend (Kevin Shinnick, part of the afformentioned gang of filmmakers I hung out with)) who explained to me that the pauses are very much like an actor in Killers From Space, one 50s film I've managed to miss.

    Oh, yes, writing the new script at this very moment! It's going to be a fun one -- sort of a mix between Day of the Triffids, The Thing from Another World, and Alien. That's all I'm saying for now...
