I recently picked up the Captain Power dvd set (which is excellent) and the creator of the show confirms that Lord Dredd comes a year before Star Trek TNG's the Borg. That would include not only the character, but the process of being assimilated digitally.
TsH:I'm looking forward to the DVD set of Captain Power too. I still have old VHS episode compilations, but not the whole series. Can't wait!In terms of the Borg and Dredd, that may be true. But of course, The Cybermen were also a cybernetic race using humans as resources (spare parts), well before Captain Power. You can't copyright an idea; because it all comes down to presentation. Great comment!best,John
You could also add in the Ko-Dan leaders from "The Last Starfighter" as well. Although they did have tree-faces.
BT:Oh yes, the Ko-Dan from The Last Starfighter! Good call. I love that movie…best,John
You could even go with Deathlok from the comic books. There was a lot of splitting on this one. 🙂
Thanks for the credit, John.
SFF: Another great idea, my friend.and Howard: Absolutely. You came up with this (years ago, if I recall…) and it was a perfect fit for this series, so I wanted to honor you for coming up with it!best,John
