Episode 003 was a big first episode after the pilot and it set the pace for multiple ship shows. It has been so long since I saw this stuff that I don’t recall the names of the races or the names of their ships,,, Damn it Jim I’m an artist not a librarian!!! Anyways I am sure that those that no of these facts will put them up for us!!! Thanks in advance to the all knowledagble ones!!! What was called for in this one was a cargo ship in distress, a bad guy ship who drills into smaller vessels and cocoons their crews,. a rescue ship, and the drilling mechanism. all of this was great fun to work on Jim Martin was on the show and provided the designs for all the disgusting alien devices that the bad guys tortured the crew with,,, Jim really came up with some evil drawings of bodily fluid extraction pumps and hosed ship interiors!!! Some way wicked work by the master!!! the ships were just fee hand designs, no real reference for the designs except for the drill mechanism,,, I had just recently saw Caddyshack again,,,,probably for the 147th time and Rodney Dangerfields golf bag came to mind as to be the basis for the drill bit housing. Borrowing from the Vulcan Lander’s landing pads from First Contact, a retro design came forth as the magnetic docking clamps. lots of fun things to work on and notice the engine exhaust on the drawing of the bad guys ship top view,,,,, Yes again direction was an issue with ONE of the men in charge!!!! HAAAAA!
