Well, I liked Star Wars when I was little, but what really sold me was a book a read a long long time ago, called StarLuck. It was a fascinating story with a star wars-ish plot where the hero was a boy who was incredibly lucky. Permalink

Flash Gordon! I actually own Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe on VHS, ah so hillarious. Seriously though, I've always enjoyed the orginal star wars movies, star trek (contrary to yurri I like enterprise), Firefly(Serenity) and I think this other show I enjoyed was called Starhunter(real gritty, I think the main ship was called Europa).

Well, my biggest inspiration is Warhammer 40k. It's got plenty of vehicle designs for me to steal and mangle, as well as a fantastic background to cram your own things into. Especially for the Orks...
Other than that, I enjoy SW, Firefly, Half-Life, various Anime (Most notably Ghost in the Shell and Gundam), Starcraft, and Battlestar Galactica. There are of course others, but these are the main ones. Permalink
Star trek, BSG both origanel and recent one's including Barto's fantastic series. Bladerunner, the tron flicks, B5, star wars, moreso the books then the movies and tv show. Firefly, Terminator, really enjoyed the short lived tv show, dug the first movie not so much the others, alien, 1, and 2. The fifth element. Permalink
