There was a record released in the 1960's by Oscar Brand featuring the Roger Wilco Four, called The Wild Blue Yonder. They also released Out Of The Blue, but this time under the name Oscar Brand and The Roger Wilco 5... They obviously picked up another band member along the way.

Space Quest
Frasier - The "Space Quest" Episode:

Episode 1.02, that's season 1 episode 2, was actually called Space Quest. Here is the synopis:

The episode is set the day after the first episode where Frasier has to adjust to Daphne and Martin in the morning, while they have to get used to his somewhat esoteric tastes. The rest of the episode concerns Frasier's quest for some peace and quiet to read a book. He then decides that the root of his problem is the lack of a relationship with Martin so he resolves to try and have a normal conversation together.

Obviously this is a play on words... It's not a Sic-Fi episode of Frasier, but Frasier is simply seeking space, peace and quiet, as stated in the above synopis.

Space Quest Figurines:

While checking eBay for cool Space Quest stuff, I came across these Space Quest figurines. Made in China (duh!), they have nothing to do with the SQ games we know and love. They only cost me a couple of buckazoids and had Space Quest written on them so I bought 'em. There are apparantly a few in the series, I managed to get #1 and #2.

It's a pity no real Space Quest figurines were made, now that would be very cool indeed!

You can check out more of them here (look to be from a different batch)
