Dan Dare - Pilot of the Future

Whose idea was it first? You decide!

In the early 1960s, Dan had a bit of an update.

Part of the update was a new badge for the Interplanet Space Fleet.

Could this have inspired a badge on a certain TV series some years later.?

Kirk looks amused, while Spock finds it … fascinating.

One more "coincidence": Mekon had no emotions. Neither did Spock.
