  2. Brian,

    You are amazing! You took a bunch of these identifications off the table. You correctly id'd 1-4, 6-8, 10, 13, 16, 17, and 19.

    Great job!

    Hi JKM et al,

    I think number 12 is from Blake's 7. I have absolutely no clue of the episode name, but that is definitely Jenna (maybe??) looking down at that body in the picture.

    The others though are real toughies. This may take some time, folks lol.

    Best wishes

    Harvey P.

  4. Is #5 from THE STARLOST? I wouldn't know the episode name.

    #14 looks like it's from DOCTOR WHO: "A Christmas Carol."

  5. Hi folks, great catches!

    HPrice: Yes, Number 12 is from Blake's 7 (that's Jenna!); from the first season episode "Time Squad."

    Linda: Number 5 is from Starlost, from the episode "Lazarus in the Mist." But #14 is not from Dr. Who, alas.

    Great identifications!


  6. Ha, I mistook Keir Dullea for Alex Cord in #5!

    I finally figured out #14, though: It's "The Neutral Zone" from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

    Still haven't figured out the rest... #9 and #11 look so familiar...

  7. #11 Greetings From Earth, Original Battlestar Galactica

    #15 That's from Earth Two

  8. Brian: Back for more, I see! Outstanding. And yes, you correctly have identified gallery image #14 as being from Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the last ep of season one: "The Neutral Zone."

    Will: You just took two toughies off the game board. #11 is "Greetings from Earth" (BSG) and #15 is indeed from the pilot of Earth 2 (1994).

    Great job to you both! Thanks for playing!


  9. In case you didn't get my last comment: I figured out #9 is from Logan's Run, but I'm stumped on #18. Please enlighten us!

  10. Hi Brian,

    Yes, # 9 is indeed from Logan's Run; from the episode "Crypt." Fantastic job!

    # 18 is...The New Outer Limits series, an episode entitled "Stasis."

    I have to say, you did an amazing job getting so many of these images of suspended animation. Fantastic!
