a_s_tarantoga Posted June 6, 2013 Report Share Posted June 6, 2013 Hi, I've been watching the 2009 Star Trek movie and somehow it appeared to me, that the makers must have been inspired by the Space Quest computer games. I'm referring especially to the following two scenes: 1. when James T. Kirk is hunted down by the fierce monster on the ice planet, the monster eventually grabs his foot with its tongue and tries to pull it in its mouth. The tongue and the general appearance of the monsters head and mouth seem too close to the sea monster in Space Quest 4 (or 12) during the scene Roger gets tortured by the Latex Babes of Estros. 2. The interior of Spock's ship containing the red matter, looks very similar to the Aluminium Mallard from Space Quest 3, at least at the moment, when the young Spock enters the cockpit, the front seat turns to front, the ship begins it ascent. It may be, that I'm a little prejudiced, or on the wrong track. But I saw these scenes for the first time now, and it really struck me. What do you think about this theory? Are there any other references to SQ from major movies? Best, Martin Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
