Gotta admit, I really like Roddenberry's helmet.
Which of course owes its origin to Bell Laboratories research into ejection seats during the early days of the X-planes programs.
Either those Bell engineers and techs followed the trend of other aviation industries and relocated to Texas, or the whole outfit did, up and moved kit and kaboodle to Texas.
There were a lot of Mavericks in the early days of the aviation biz, and it was a Texan who gave us his name for that word. 'Course, Texas President Lindbergh's presence and personal contacts in the industry could have had a lot to do with it too.
