    I've been doing CTRL-Print Screen to just grab the window, but I didn't know about the snapshot feature. I'll give it a try, thanks! :)

    One ferry ride from Starfleet HQ
    That would be MODOFK

    Take it up with Stan Lee. (or maybe Jack Kirby) ;)

    Ya beat me to it.

    Indeed. Note the small, unbolded 'f' in Nerys Myk's post.

    Acronyms aren't required to include uncapitalized helper words. The United States of America isn't USOA, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration isn't NAASA.

    Also, it's LASER, not LABSEOR.

    Vic Perrin is the suspect on this morning's episode of 'Dragnet'.
    Unusual to see him in a live action role when he's known for his V/O work.

    No "maybe" about it. MODOK was co-created by Lee and Kirby, and it's very possible that Kirby came up with the name.

    It would be funny if it was renamed The National Astronautic, Uranographic, and Space Exploration Administration and used the acronym NAUSEA, which many space travelers feel for at least part of the trip.

    Well there is the big head in Marvel comics which is also being made as a TV series apparently and William Smith played a character called Modok in Half Life, an episode of Logan's Run and while I have most definitely heard the name quite often cannot remember or find any other reference to it on the net? :wtf:

    The big head in Marvel Comics is the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. He's getting his own show? Wow. Good news for Mega Cranial-Americans.
    MODOK and his underlings at AIM are erasing all other references to Modoks from the internet. Run William Smith, there can be only one MODOK!!!!!!

    She played the wife of former agent Jim Backus, who our heroes had to protect from vengeance-seeking psycho-bomber Gene Hackman!

    John Fiedler as an enemy agent in the I Spy ep "Suitable for Framing." This is probably the 12th time our guys have been framed.

    I'm not going to go through 177 pages to see if this has been mentioned, but I'm watching 'Hustle' an old pre 'Smokey and the Bandit' Burt Reynolds movie and Paul Winfield is Burt's partner.
