Yeah, The Twilight Zone ripped off a lot of leftover props, costumes, robots, and yes - the C-57D starcruiser from Forbidden Planet.

TZ's "On Thursday We Leave For Home" episode (below) used recycled Forbidden Planet uniforms

But so did Lost In Space, as shown here:

Even props from 2001: A Space Odyssey got recycled and used as background junk in a Star Wars movie, as with this space pod:

Yep, here comes another fictional starship. This one is known by the name Liberty 1 or Icarus. Like the Jupiter II, it was bound for Alpha Centauri but never made it.

The Pan Am space clipper with Dr. Heywood
Floyd en route to his destination - the Lunar base on
Clavius. Alas, neither he nor Pan Am were never meant
to be.

Turned out there was a nasty little war going
on at the time (1968) that ultimately bankrupted any
of these space-faring dreams.

Purely by accident I happened to stumble
upon this image of the "Death Star" from the well-known
franchise. That puppy is quite a bit more sized that I
previously image - but here it is - using the state of
Florida as a backdrop. A little too close to South Carolina
for my comfort! :o

Come on!
That's like a fisherman with a 12" trout holding it out at arm's length in front of him to make it seem huge in comparison to himself.

It's not diversity, it's displacement.
