Did you know that Danone Actimel (kinda yoghurt) protects you against microscopic Mycons?
Or that Goofy flies with Penetrator?
Check out these shots and post here your own SC twitches from television!

I can't find it right now but Babylon 5 had a transport ship that resembled quite closely an Earthling Cruiser.

That's because the Cruiser is direct descendant of starship Enterprize of Star Treck . As are Ilwrath and VUX .

Really? The Ilwrath looks nothing like the Enterprise, the VUX barely.

They're based on other ships from Star Trek.

Ferengi ship actually.  Just the nose seems different. Google image "ferengi ship" first two results should be a dead give away.

Not that the Ferengi ship is that original; I mean, even the Yehat has a resemblance, if you chop off the Ferengi's nose.

I always thought the top-down, outline view of the Mycon resembled the Millennium Falcon -- minus the cockpit.

The Yehat vaguely resembles a klingon bird of brey as well.

Oh, and there is a ship that resembles an Arilou in Babylon 5:
http://archive.firstones.com/tp2b/league_vree.html
http://www.b5tech.com/league/leagueships/xill/xill.html
It has a little weapon underneath, like the Arilou. Oh, and you'll notice that the aliens also resemble the "greys". So... basically Arilou. Not sure if this qualifies as "rip-off" since greys in flying saucers already existed in the public mind before SC2.
