Gridlock on the Temporal Crossroads

When the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise and the Legion of Super-Heroes encounter Vandar the First and Only – the immortal ruler of an Earth-based interplanetary empire who appears to be a hybrid of Flint from the original series episode Requiem for Methuselah and longtime DC Universe pain-in-the-ass Vandal Savage – in Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes #5 (February 2012), he makes an initially cryptic comment…

Come into my parlor...

…the full implications of which soon become all too clear.

Where the Chronosphere from "Seven Days", dammit?

Now it’s time to determine your geekiness level: exactly how many of the devices and machines used for travel through space, time, and other dimensions did you recognize? From top to bottom, left to right, here’s what I was able to identify off the top of my head:

The TARDIS from "Doctor Who"

The time-travelling phone booth from "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure"

The hot tub from "Hot Tub Time Machine"

The Flash's Cosmic Treadmill

Lazarus' ship from the "Star Trek" episode "The Alternative Factor"

The Stargate from "Stargate" and "Stargate: SG-1"

The time travel pod from the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" episode "A Matter of Time"

The Aeon-type timeship from the "Star Trek: Voyager" episode "Future's End"

A Legion of Super-Heroes Time Bubble

The Time Tunnel from "The Time Tunnel"

The time machine from "The Time Machine" (1960)

The launch pod from "Timecop"

The DeLorean from "Back to the Future"

So how many did you get? 🙂

Oh, and if anyone happens to figure out what any of the ones I missed are, feel free to drop me a line. I’d be interested in knowing…

    The Dagger of Time from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (movie/game)
    right next to the Stargate/treadmill

    The stone column next to the Doctor’s Tardis appears to be the Master’s Tardis 🙂 It took on that shape in Logopolis…
    The time machine above the HG Wells time machine in panel is also related to it’s neighbour being the device ol’ HG used to travel to the twentieth century in Time After Time (Nick Meyer directing).
    That is one very cool panel LOL

  4. David So Says:

    fortunately, the Wells Class starship is not there.

    Would you be okay with me using the picture with all of the time machines on display for the Back to the Future wikia by chance? I’d be sure to credit this page.

  6. Antiyonder Says:

    If I may ask, would you be okay with me using your scan of ST/LoSH #5 on the Back to the Future wikia, with credit to this page of course?

  7. Lunar Archivist Says:

    Sorry, this request got buried in my “to be approved” folder. 😦

    And sure, go right ahead and use the scan. 😀
