I came across this very awesome, very large illustration by Jeff Carlisle named Another Night at the Warp Core Cafe. It features a vast amount of characters from a vast amount of franchises. I was hoping our community would rise to the challenge and help identify as many as possible!

    @Stormblessed Nice work on the key. I did not think to do a grid and was assigning a unique number to each person/thing.... IMO you found a much better/easier way. – Skooba Feb 11 at 21:00

    To those voting to close as too broad, we already have several questions set in this format, so there is precedent. – Mwr247 Feb 11 at 21:37
  • Is Harrison Ford the only actor on there twice (as Rick Deckard and Han Solo)? For instance there are a few people from Dune, is Sean Young somewhere as Chani as well as Rachel? – Daniel Roseman Feb 13 at 9:52
  • Or for that matter, Ben Browder as both John Crichton (Farscape) and Cameron Mitchell (Stargate SG1)? – Zeiss Ikon Mar 4 at 20:17
