How retro is Space Command? Entirely. And it’s not just the rocketships with Cadillac fins.
The quarters of character Yusef Sekander, played by Robert Picardo, are stuffed with a collection of classic science fiction. Real books! You didn’t expect to see any of those in the future, eh?
In the video below, show creator Marc Zicree lovingly introduces viewers to practically every volume, including Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, Ellison’s Dangerous Visions, E.E. “Doc” Smith’s Gray Lensman (the Fantasy Press edition, no less!) and other traditional favorites.
Fans attending the San Diego Comic Con can look forward to the Space Command Panel on Friday, July 25 at 8 p.m. in Room: 25ABC.
Update 06/12/2014: Corrected title of Bradbury book, per comment.
