Goodbye Ralph McQuarrie. You Are Already Missed


You along with Leslie Stevens will always be remembered as the primary visionaries and contributors to the "1978 Battlestar Galactica" series. Your Battlestars And Basestars are majestic, your Vipers soar, your "Core Command" - (Galactica bridge) still hasn't been outdone in terms of spectacle 34 years later, and your Imperious Leader Chamber remains ominous and spooky.

You also designed Steven Spielberg's "Mothership" in "Close Encounters of The Third Kind", the entire universe of "Star Wars"- (1977), and "ET - The Extra Terrestrial" among many many other film projects.

Thank you Ralph McQuarrie, for making Science Fiction and outer space so much fun.
