Q: Seeking story where a rocket crew is murdered in a fake craft

BuzzI'm trying to remember a story, which (given the content) was almost certainly written in the 1950s.

Donatello SwansinoMy question is relatively simple. I would like to know what the first alien species to make its way to Earth is in the recorded and unrecorded history of Doctor Who.

Q: Did Peter's mother know that Ego was not human?

DiscoveryIs there any evidence which shows that Peter's mother knew Ego was an alien?

9:47 AM
Q: Why did Ego kill Peter's mother?

DiscoveryFirst, Ego loved her. Second, if Ego needed to visit his brain to keep his human form in existence and if he didn't want her to feel bad alone, he could have simply brought her with him to Ego, the planet. BTW, she really felt bad when she was at her death bed and he wasn't there beside her (so ...

@Randal'Thor I am of the opinion that deleting it would be a good idea
11:24 AM
@Mithrandir then delete all the other ones, we seem to allow some level of joke answer, I've flagged about 5-6 in the last 2 weeks myself community keeps leaving them there, don't see why it should be deleted. It's an answer, albeit not a great one "nagini and the snake are not the same"
11:45 AM
@Edlothiad delete all the joke answers
Apart from the unrelated stuff, it's a one line comment with no backup or anything, stuck in after the irrelevant stuff.
And considering what happened with scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/310/… I don't think that you can say we leave old, highly voted joke answers
(10k link)
12:02 PM
Rand was afraid to delete that one so I flagged it
Was voted looks ok, and then he deleted x many days later
Wait that doesn't look right, maybe it was another answer :thinking_face: I thought it was this one, one second
I've solved the confusion, I had wanted to flag that one but opted against it because of the result of this one: scifi.stackexchange.com/review/low-quality-posts/115593
So much for deleting all the joke answers, Young Randir

@Oscar snorts at downvote
@Mithrandir Salty
@Oscar Heard there's a great first comment there.
@Edlothiad NaCl?
@Edlothiad barely makes sense on this question
12:37 PM
@Mithrandir It makes perfect sense. It's determined very well.
It works more on 'how does this work' questions.
Not on every single question with the word 'how'.
Sure it does.
Where are these stars coming from? There's 3 of us in the room and SQB hasn't been seen in 35 days

can you star from transcript
Yes, you can
Or my theory of mods being able to be invisible is true...
People sit in the transcripts of the trash compactor?

He said he wanted to, but it's impossible

Q: In Raimi's Spider-Man Trilogy, how many years passed in the storyline between each film?

PJS1987The only info I could find was Wikipedia, which did not cite their source, but states that two years pass between the events of Spider-Man (2002) and Spider-Man 2 (2004). No passage is stated for the time between Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3 (2007) but it feels like less time than passed ...
