Small world. I worked next to (inside it actually) the real FSQ-7 as a SAGE maintenance technician (we were both on the 2nd floor of the Duluth SAGE Direction Center in 1959, starting a few days after it fired up. Tens years later, as a "Big D" Detroit disc jockey, I worked with Mike Scott who in 1976 had a part in the Westworld sequel playing the role I played in real life. Small world, no?
