Blastermind Father's Day Quiz

Who's the Daddy? A Blastermind tribute to the fathers of sci-fi...

Last Sunday was Father's Day and what better way to celebrate then to take a look at our favourite on-screen fathers? Bringing Daddy issues to sci-fi, the guys below are either the main characters or the background figures of their tales, but being a dad is important to their role somehow.

The question this week is, can you identify the fathers and more importantly who their famous fictional offspring are? As usual there are some tricky ones and easier ones. There's so many fathers to choose from that you're sure to miss a few...

Usual request: please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but the folks on this thread are quite happy for you to post and discuss answers if you follow the golden rule of only posting answers in invisible text (if you don’t know how ask somebody there – they’re very friendly).
