    I never knew Fiat made spaceships.

    So it’s Battle Beyond the Stars. Where’s Sybil Danning?

  3. Tor Mented Says:

    Rocket can.
    Burning out his fuse up here alone.

    That look of horror Major Tom gets when he realises he’s forgotten to take his protein pills and put his helmet on before lift off…

  5. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Don’t you hate it when the space battle breaks out while you’re in the space outhouse?

    Ill-fitting spaceship

    Came for “people in bottles” tag, was not disappointed.

    Earth is doooomed (like Sarnath?) if the best we can do is one guy in a phone booth without even a helmet. Protein pills are all he must eat, there’s no room in there for even freeze-dried.

    Hopefully it’s just a game show and he’s in an isolation booth before he has to answer questions. Or some sort of VR experience.

    @fred: Could be worse — could be “Battle Beyond the Stars”. Which has a title that makes no sense, and I’ve fallen asleep every time I’ve tried to watch it. Mr. xn and I always called it “John-Boy and His Flying Wooden Uterus”.

    @Tor, Bruce: GSS!

  8. Hammy Says:

    I was going to ask if maybe the title was a misprint. It sure looks like “Bottle for the Stars” to me, but…

    …that would be uncanny.

    Again, I’ll get me hat. 😉

  9. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I think we need to buy @Hammy more hats if he’s going to keep coming up with these gems.

  10. Ryan Says:

    Woof, @Hammy’s got the goods today.

    For fuck’s sake, Hal, open the fucking pod bay doors!

    With all that hardware in the background, looks like a major traffic jam on the Van Allen Turnpike, and someone is getting road rage!

  13. Max Bathroom Says:

    You’re thinking what can’t be seen in that photo is Booji Boy giving Tom the finger from the bottle in front of him in the re-entry tailback, then?

  14. JJYoyo Says:

    @ Max B: I have not thought of Booji Boy for decades. Now he haunts my dreams. I understand what Tom is going through. GSS!
