    2) UFO

    3) Planet of the Apes (?)

    4) Space: 1999 (Another Time Another Place)

    5) a bit too generic to tell (reminds me of the famous Apollo 17 photo.)

    6) Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

    7) Hmm, V ?

    8) Star Trek: TNG

    9) That looks like an actual satellite launch from the Space Shuttle!

    10) Nice space station, but I can't place it.

    11) unknown... possibly Lexx?

    12) unknown... perhaps Crichton's module from Farscape? (though it looks like a regular shuttle to me.)

  2. 1 Star Trek Original
    3. Planet of the Apes TC
    6. Buck Rogers
    8 Star Trek TNG
    12 Odyssey 5 (?)

  3. #2 looks like the end credit sequence from "U.F.O."

  4. Hi everyone,

    You're all doing great on the cult tv faces of Earth, which I accidentally scheduled a day early and didn't realize, since I was hip deep in deadlines. Argh!

    Anyway, Brian, you took a whole bunch of those off the table, with jdigriz and Will doing very well too.

    The ones still in play are # 5, #9, #10, and #11

    Great job all!

  5. 5. Galactica:1980 "Galactica Discovers Earth"

  6. Hello, Howard my friend.

    "Galactica Discovers Earth" is a brilliant supposition for this image, and this image might have been recycled in that episode of Galactica 1980. However, I pulled the actual image from another production (also by Universal). But from a few years earlier.

    All my best,

    I'm going to take a guess that #9 is the first season episode of The X-Files involving the astronaut and the Face on Mars.

    #11 still bugs me...almost looks like a Shadow vessel from Babyon 5, but I can't think of an episode that matches it...

    Given your clue for #5, I'll put forth The Six Million Dollar Man as a likely source.

  8. John, based on your clue, I'd have to guess that this is from the episode of The Six Million Dollar Man where Steve goes back into space.

  9. Hi folks,

    Brian: You are right about # 9, that real life stock footage appeared in the context of the early X-Files season one episode "Space." Well done, sir.

    Both you and Howard are on the right track thinking about The Six Million Dollar Man, but instead, consider his sister...

    Great job to both you and're narrowing it down!


  10. OK, # 5 has to be from "The Bionic Woman," but I have no clue as to which episode.

    Is # 10 from "Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict?"
