Models built for the 'Sci-Fi' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Challenge has been inspired by the 50th anniversary this year of the TV programme Doctor Who which reaches this milestone on 23rd November (it's also Secretary's Challenge number 50).

Not wishing to be too restrictive (to non-Whovians) I'm opening it up to any sci-fi, whether it's TV, film, radio, books or comics. Your model, therefore, is to be something within the genre of sci-fi.
