After Re-watching "Time Keeps on slippin" i noticed one of the Professor's Doomsday Devices looks a fair bit like the Terran Cargo boxes in the PC game(s) "Freespace I + II" the only difference being the colour and that round thing on top of the doomsday device.

I know this seems pretty dumb, especially without screen grabs of them... But i will see what i can do about that.

But as i said, this may very well be co-incidental, but the resemblance is pretty close, which is why i thought it might be worth putting it up here...

Teral, You're a legend
Finally we have some pics to compare!

OK the in-game pic is focused on the cargo box.
The doomsday device in question is the bottom right one with the round thing on top. Thanks again Teral  smile

Well, everyone who works on Futurama ARE nerds, so I really wouldn't be surprised.

Yep, just send them to me, Rage Dump. I'll host them.

But I wouldn't put it beyond the staff to do so either. They have put in way more obscure references in the past.

Heres the new link again, you have to copy/paste the link, and im still not too sure whether it even works then....
This is of the crate in the game, the professor's device that im talking about is in the bottom left the first time you see all the devices. http://mythic_zealot.tripod.com//sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/untitled7.gif
