A Cultural History
When they`re painted silver like this they remind me a lot of the UFO alien mk2 helmets with the opening visor.I`ve remembered two other films/shows featured here where the gsh-6 makes an appearance:Dr Who:To kill the moonSupernovaAnd I`ve just found one we dont have,its Earthstorm from 2006 staring Battlestar Galacticas Dirk Benedicthttps://i.ytimg.com/vi/DCMXgxH8ZWo/hqdefault.jpghttp://media9.fast-torrent.ru/media/files/s3/pl/lc/zemlya-pod-udarom.jpgI suspect theres probably more as well but thats all I can find at the moment
Agree, painted up, I too was reminded of the UFO helmets. I'm thinking they might have been the inspiration behind the design? I draw your attention to the horizontal ridges on the GSH and then the vertical ridges on the UFO being a cheeky little design nod. Also the whole visor thing is very reminiscent. Thanks for the other stuff, I'll go add the labels.
I've got to wonder if this is an adaption of Bradbury's "Mars is Heaven."
The set up does sound the same.
