Of course! It's quite interesting when you read what kits are bashed for making models for movies, and also what developers & special effects guys slip into games & movies!
For example; I think we all know the Millenium Falcon joins the attack on the Borg in Star Trek First Contact?
- R2-D2 appears in Star trek (reboot) (ILM did the effects for both movies)
- Also in the 1999 game Homeworld the lifeboat from Alien appears in the debris during one of the cut scenes
Indeed! When I'm getting to do the Mothership from Close Encounters (yes, it is on my list ) I'll try to incorporate R2 as well. There are so many fantastic examples, like the Millennium Falcon in "Blade Runner", the Serenity in "New BSG", the Colonial Defender in "Serenity", the Cylon Sword in "Lost in Space" (which actually makes it a "Lost in Space" prop re-used in "TOS BSG"!). Not to mention the guys behind the camera (Andy Probert, John Dykstra, Richard Edlund, Carlo Rambaldi etc.). And if it comes to all the greeblies, you might think there was one company that delivered a zillion different universes.
Oopsie, I just found the Bookshelf Obelisks from Adama's quarters. These were supposed to be released together with the star maps but I forgot to re-scale the big version so that it holds regular (letter-size / A4) books in place. Well then, I used my lunch break to print and assemble the parts. This is the result:
