So, does anyone know if the big spaceplane that Doc, Hank, Dean, etc. took to Gargantua 2 was supposed to be the X-30/NASP? Sure looks like it:

I can't believe that project was over 20 years ago. Would have been so cool if they had built it.

Thanks. The other thing I was wondering about was the lounge singer during JJ's commercial: he seems to look a lot like Dean Martin. Of course, Martin was in the original Ocean's 11 movie, where he played a member of a gang who rob casinos, and masqueraded as a lounge singer.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it :-).

Found another one:

Looks like the design for several of other other spaceplanes flying to G2, and how can you not love the name?

Arrghh! VentureStar is like "Space, Badddddddd"! ;)

BTW, the ship Brock took has the exact same logo as my local 9, the Houston Astros.

Cool! I was wondering what that reference was. So, does that men the "civilian volunteer" Brock "borrowed" the ship from is Valentin Jalomo? The cowboy hat and mustache look about right :-).
