Hmm.. can't remember when it was made, it _may_ have been pre Voyager
(and I do mean the space-probes :-).
Of course they _could_ do a 'special edition' and 'dub' the location -
make it Ganymede or Callisto.
OTOH, a film set on a mine on Io _as_we_now_know_it_to_be_, would, at
least, have a _really_ dramatic landscape :-)

Hmm.. I wonder if we could convince St. Jon to do another alien race
with ships based on these. There is also a crystalline spacecraft that I
rather like, GZG already do a model if this, its half of PAND-40
...but she's in one of her _other_ forms :-)

While mine can be just weird :-)
