  2. Hi Gregory,

    Thank you for the kind words about my work. I appreciate that, and hope you'll stick around for more.

    And as for the Ray Guns -- wow! You took a whole bunch of those ray gun identifications right off the table.

    You accurately guessed that #2 is from Lost in Space ("One of Our Dogs is Missing"), # 3 Star Trek ("Where No Man Has Gone Before), # 4 Star Trek ("The Galileo 7"),

    In fact, you also got #5, #6, (both Space:1999, "New Adam, New Eve" and "Alpha Child") #8, #9, 10, 13, and 14. Nicely done, sir!

    That leaves us left:

    # 1
    # 7
    #12
    #15 - #18

    All my best,
    JKM

  4. Let's take a stab at one of the remainders:

    #1 Soldier, Outer Limits Season 2, episode 1 (written by the great Harlan Ellison)

    The others look so familiar, but just can't place them.

    Thanks, John.

  5. Hello my friends,

    Howard: You are wonderful as usual. You correctly identified the weapons from Blake's 7 (#7), Dr. Who (Peter Davison!) and the real toughie here: the digitizer from Captain Power. Nicely done!

    Le0pard13: Fantastic job on a tough identification there. And you are absolutely right. That's "Soldier" from Outer Limits Season 2, written by HE. Fantastic job!

    All my best to you both,
    John

  6. #11 - Blake's 7 also?

    Thanks for the fun and interesting posts as always.

  7. #18 is a Farscape pulse pistol. Not sure of the episode - but perchance that's not just a generic model, but Chricton's Winona?

    For some reason #16 looks like Gates McFadden in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

  9. Hi everyone.

    Gotta fix a mix-up first. Howard identified # 7 as Blake's 7. That's actually Dr. Who, "Planet of Evil" (with Prentis Hancock). Russ is right, it is #11 that is Blake's 7. Very good Russ, and sorry about the confusion there! Excellent identification!

    Woodchuckgod: Great job identifying Winona on Farscape, and this still is from the fourth sason episode "Chricton Kicks!" Outstanding job!

    And Grayson, you got the right show for # 16, Star Trek: the Next Generation. But that's not the beautiful Gates McFadden. We'll se if anyone else guesses...

    Great job to all!

    best,
    John
