Remember: the CMDF
23 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot for the life of me remember any of the plots now (I was, 9?), but that image dominates of the ship shrinking on that rotating disk of colored lights like a giant wheel-of-fortune, with the three large emitters pointing down, blazing away atop arcing pylons rising up, out and back down toward the wheel. And the shrinking music theme cue with a powerful but languid tone--*da-dum-da deeeeeeeeee dow! da-dum-da deeeeeeeeee DOW!*--sorta a twist on the Perry Mason opening riff. I can still see Buzby Birdwell (what kid knew that takeoff name then?) sitting up in the little bubbled cockpit on top to fly it ... and Ted Knight's announcer voice as the Narrator intoning: *The C-M-D-F ...Combined Miniature Defense Force!* I had a set of Mattels TogÕl blocks and often made the Voyager. Cool ship before I ever knew the Enterprise.
