Re: Thunderbirds are...

Yes, Brains was another of my minor issues, but one which I think needs some very careful treading around lest any comments get misinterpreted! For the avoidance of doubt, I have no problem whatsoever with the ethnicity - in fact, I'm a little surprised they didn't take the opportunity to add some d...

Re: Thunderbirds are...

Given its heritage, its perhaps not surprising its wound up looking a little like the YF-22 from "Macross Plus" and one of the Core Fighters from "Gundam 0083" met in a bar... :) Its a really cool tip of the hat to how popular the show was in Japan; I have a friend there whose mother was apparently ...

Re: Where are Star Fleet Headquarters?

I wasn't specifically referring to "Babylon 5 "; I was pulling generic future-Earth organisations out of the depths of my brain (with the obvious exception of Star Fleet) and had forgotten "EarthGov" had been used there (a similar brainfade is how I ended up with my on-line name... :lol: ), but now ...

A New Recruit
