I heard of one used 'exactly' like the valley forges one.
Somehow i really seem to like these types of biodome's and was hoping someone knew of these kind of domes used elsewhere because
this thread is also extremely handy in widening someone's knowledge of science fiction books / films / series...

Let's say first to show a picture of ship with a look a like biodome(s) ( from film / tv series :wink: ) takes the win.

i know i have seen one like that but for the life of me i cant think of it.... after several hours of google rabbit holes... and side trips down memory lane.... i have what might be an answer

The Starlost. cant find a name for the spaceship but the poster on imdb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069638/) shows a ship with multiple biodomes....

They're the main protagonists of The Skylark of Space and sequels by E E Doc Smith. The spaceships I remember are:

Skylark
Skylark 2
Skylark 3
Skylark of Valeron

Not according to the copy of Skylark of Space I just checked - the first experiment is a tub of chemicals that flies off by itself, but that's not a spaceship, after that they build a belt that lets someone fly, and a ship intended to be bait for saboteurs which they call "the cripple," which I don't think ever gets off the ground, but the first real ship is The Skylark.

The Cripple or old crip it is... it was still a spaceship even if it never flew. the fact they knew it was being sabotaged and that they put in bogus instruments to confuse the opposition is moot. It was the original plan that the skylark was evolved from.

the slipper is all yours commander.

OK, this one should be fairly easy...

Which familiar three-letter acronym was used for the official Time Lord organization responsible for preventing paradoxes etc., and what do the initials stand for?

Hint - the first letter is C

The fandom is Dr. Who, of course.

Celestial? I was expecting chrono-something. No imagination, these writers.
