vestassmall.jpg Wind Power has been hailed as the ecological saviour for the planet…now while many may think it’s the Wind that actually powers the wind turbines, we here at ShowMeSciFi.com know better.

On a recent trip through Copenhagen International Airport (CPH) we came across a wind power display from turbine vendor Vestas.

There was something a bit odd about it though and on a closer examination it become more obvious.

Check out the pic below of the (lego) worker in the model that runs the Turbine..

That’s right! Obi-wan Kenobi and The Force!

In Honor of Father’s day…here is ShowMeSciFi’s list of the top 5 dads is SciFi

1) Darth Vader – Could there be any other first choice? Who hasn’t recited the line “Luke I am Your Father ” at least once?


2) Sarek – father of Spock (Star Trek). Sarek made his fair share of appearances in Star Trek episodes and his influence on Spock cannot be understated.


3) William (Bill) Adama – Admiral of the Colonial Fleet (Battlestar Galactica) and father of Lee ‘Apollo’ Adama. In the new BSG series as was the case in the old the father son relationship is never far.


4) Kyle Reese – Father of John Conner Leader of the Human Resistance (Terminator).

Perhaps the weirdest Father/Son relationship. John Conner of course (thanks to time travel) actually sends his own father back in time in order to impregnate his mother (Sarah Conner) so that he could exist.


5) Jor-El – Father of Kal-El better known as Superman. Were it not for Jor-El, Superman would have never made it off Krypton (and Marlon Brando rocks!).
