Borg Cube - Star Trek - Borg Queen
The Tardis - Dr Who - The Doctor
Planet Express Ship - Futurama - Bender Bending Rodríguez
Klingon Bird of Prey - Star Trek III The Search for Spock - Commander Kruge
USS Reliant NCC 1864 - Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan - Khan Noonien Singh

Without doing a search, my guess is the original Enterprise.

Birgit said...

I am not sure but I will go with Enterprise as well

Maurice Mitchell said...

Definitely right on both counts Alex and Brigit. Good quiz Spacerguy.

I'm guessing Jupiter 2 was originally Gemini 12 and the Reliant was the Yorktown. I don't know which is the odd one out though. Happy Halloween! :)

Tony Laplume said...

I know the Enterprise was originally the Yorktown. I don't know about the other one.

Nova Dove said...

Heh, really nice quiz Spacerguy!

I think the Gemini 2 must have been Battlestar Galactica, that series used Zodiac constellation names quite a bit.

BTW, I would love to see photos of all of these different ships! Here's a nice one of the ship from Alien.


I really like Klingon BoP

Anyone know what this one is called? Blake's 7 ship :)

Thanks guys, great guesses everyone. Alex, Lexa, Tony and Nova Dove, you're on the right track. All will be revealed!

Blakes 7 ship was the Liberator, right?

Jupiter 2 and USS Enterprise NCC 1701. My congrats to all of you who nailed it. The odd one out is the Doomsday machine because being a fully functional, automated, computerised space vessel, it had no need for a humanoid crew.

Good names, great stuff, good times, and great memories. Thanks!

I wish my brain retained that kind of information. It used to retain everything about The X-Files but I'm afraid its too many years now. I would have to watch the whole series again from scratch.

Hmmmmm.

:)
