It looks like Mindy's dad is wearing the helmet from "The Tholian Web" and the cheapo repurposed--shower curtain spacesuit from "The Naked Time."

Yeah!

The C-57D being reused in the tiny space ship Twilite Zone was a fun find, too. Just used one of the models laying around...

Cool.
When I saw the Forbidden Planet saucer on the Twilight Zone, I thought they had just standardized flying saucers.

Good job remembering the number from the narration.

IIRC, FB was one of Roddenberry's inspirations for ST in the first place

A pre-Taxi Christopher Lloyd as the guy with a grudge who trashes the 12th Precinct squadroom on Barney Miller.

It could very well be the pilot. "The Captain of star cruiser C-57D, his First Officer and the ship's Doctor beam down...er, Star cruiser 57-D lands on a planet to evacuate a failed colony. Despite a murderous invisible creature, Dr. Morbius and his daughter do not wish to leave."

The film includes the wonderful line delivered by a swimming Anne Francis, "What's a bathing suit?"

Yes, I saw it again just a year or so ago, and Roddenberry's debt to it was very clear. It still holds up pretty well, too.

Just spotted Michelle Forbes (Ens. Ro Laren) as a rebel infantry officer in Mockingjay, Part 2, the last of the Hunger Games movies.

That ship was used many times over the years.

http://herocomplex.latimes.com/uncat...e-lost-saucer/

I recall seeing a picture of the prop hanging on someone's wall

I believe Forbidden Planet is the best science fiction film of all time (well so far)


I *really* hope no one tries to remake it. The new TDTESS was a complete disaster and I would hope no one ruins FP in the same way.

Also as the compositized mission controller in Apollo 13.

Anyone else in both ST and a nonfiction space film/show?

ST and the 1998 HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon had quite a few actors and actresses in common, mentioned at the end of the second paragraph here: http://memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Daniel_Hugh_Kelly
