Happy Birthday Sybil Danning!

Today marks the birthday of Space: 1970 favorite Sybil Danning! Best known to Star Kids (probably) as the Valkyrie Warrior St. Exmin in Battle Beyond The Stars, the statuesque Sybil also had a prominent guest role on the original V television series.

For more of the stunning Sybil, check out this VHS intro for the Space: 1999 compilation film, Alien Attack. She was also our Space Babe for March, 2011.

    She was the first "genre celebrity" I ever met, at my second ever convention in spring of '82. Everyone was SO intimidated by her, because she really is super-tall and VERY imperious in manner; she just exuded this "Don't screw with ME!" vibe. However, she also has a great sense of humour, and lovely smile. She was the judge of the costume contest, and placed me third in the Junior division, commenting "I LOVE your boots, honey!" (I was wearing knee-high spike heeled boots, like she likes; I think I was supposed to be some sort of elf like from "Elfquest"). I went and talked to her afterwards, to thank her, and she smiled and said "My pleasure, sweetie. Did you REALLY make that outfit yourself? You've got a design career ahead of you, for sure" and gave me a wink.

    So, yeah... part of the reason I kept costuming is because Sybil Frickin' DANNING said I was awesome at it. Thanks, girl, and happy birthday!

    Your Pal,

    Storm the Klingon

  2. Is that Peter Weller back there? It's been so long since I've seen the series.

  3. That's... quite an outfit. I didn't recall her wearing that in her episodes.. I missed a few of the final ones, I do recall it was getting pretty 'Dynasty/Falcon Crest-ish' with the leading female fights.

    Very.. yummy.
