    Well, if we're doing cars in space, I'm going add this one to my list of honorable mentions.



    Heavy Metal | Soft Landing | Corvette 1959


    Speaking of projects involving Dan O'Bannon, I'd also like to add for honorable mention

    the scout ship Dark Star,

    and, even though it never flew on screen (in that film), the derelict ship from the original Alien certainly deserves a shout-out.

    Space pod from Lost In Space
    Gunstar
    And another vote for the Eagle transporter as it really did seem like a practical idea.

    Rather good, sort of a sequel (2069 is four years after the original, Jeff is believed dead, Tintin has grown out of her teenage nickname and is now know as Kayo - copyright maybe being a big point in that - and the Hood has been inactive for years...) but also a reboot (Grandma is now an ex-spy who knows all about it. Gordon isn't old enough to drive). Other Anderson series get passing references (Stingray is in TB4's waterpen, Shadow Moonbase Alpha mixes the UFO and 1999 designs).
    Largely recast (Lee Majors voices Jeff in flashbacks), but David Graham still voices Parker and Braiman.

    He and Matt Zimmerman (Alan) are the only surviving cast memebers from the original series.

    Oh that reboot, still no haven't seen it but have heard about it. Is it true there's tons of little easter eggs like a hand holding the model of Thunderbird 1 to stop it falling over and such, I read something about little gags like that on the show.
