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

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
