Yup. odd, really. It was made in 1975, and you wouldn't think 'five 
years from now' was very Scifi. Equally odd that everything in it 
(with the possible excpetion of the submersible & jet fighter) was 
actually feasible in 1980. But why did those interceptors have one 
missile? And why did they have wings, for that matter? Brilliant 
(i.e. crap but good) TV though..

I had one of those interceptor toys with the spring loaded missile 
when I was about 6. Now how old do you feel?

<cough> to keep it vaguely relevant, how about SGII rules for the 
craft, and FT rules about missiles which detonate ahead of a vehicle 
which then flies into the explosion?
