    #7 - That'd be one Mr. Robert Englund in some flavor of "V" - no idea which one though.

    #10 & 11 - This is a guess. I do not recognize directly either of these shots. However, the CGI looks distinctly like Mainframe Entertainment's work. (I'm a fan.) So taking that, and contextual things you've mentioned into account - I'm going to take the stab that they're both Beast Wars.

    I'll call it good with those and I'll let that cover my 'blind guess' bank for the day :D

    1. Hi woodchuckgod,

      Brilliant identifications (as usual). You successfully recognized Robert Englund on V: The Series, as well as characters from Beast Wars (Dinobat and Black Arachnia, respectively).

      Well done, my friend!

  2. 1. Definitely Martin Landau--Mission: Impossible?
    2. Spock on Star Trek
    3. Not Blake's 7, but I'll kick myself when I see it.
    5. Logan's Run
    7. Robert Englund on V
    8 & 9. Star Trek: The Next Generation
    10. Transformers: Beast Wars
    11. Reboot
    12. Spike on Buffy, the Vampire Slayer (and later Angel)
    13. Being Human

    1. Hugh,

      You did a great job here, as you always do, and took a number of these gallery images off the table.

      #1 is Martin Landau, but from The Twilight Zone, not MI
      You got 2, 5, 8, 9, and 12 also correct. Awesome. But 3 is still outstanding, as is number 13!

      Great job!

  3. 13 and 14. Alias?

    1. Jay-Jay:

      Yes! Thirteen and Fourteen are from Alias (Sark and Irina, respectively). Fantastic job, sir!


  4. 6 is Buck Rogers i think.

    1. Carl: You rock, buddy! Fantastic job. #6 is indeed Jorex Leek (Barney McFadden) from the Buck Rogers episode "Olympiad!"

      Splendid job, my friend.

      This leaves only: #3 and #4 that have not been recognized by readers yet. Well played...

  5. #4 is Dione from Space:1999 "The Last Enemy".

    #5 Looks British but I can't place it.

    1. Hi Brian

      Excellent ID on #4. That's indeed Dione from Space:1999's "The Last Enemy." #5 is British too, and from virtually the same time period as 1999...

    #3 has to be from the 1976 UK/West Germany tv series "Star Maidens" with french actor Pierre Brice in the background

    1. Anonymous: Well done! That image is indeed from Star Maidens! You tagged the last image in the gallery!!!!
