Orion Slave Girl vs Giant Squid

Today we are honouring not one but TWO fabulous creatures! The Architeuthis species or Giant Squid and also the actor Yvonne Craig, who has had a long and varied career in TV and movies but is most known for portraying Batgirl in the 60's Batman TV show but also ( and this came as a surprise to me ) the dancing Orion Slave Girl in the Star Trek episode 'Whome Gods Destroy'. )This episode was profoundly mind altering to my proto-geek, pre-pubescent consciousness.)
The squid hasn't a chance!

  1. It should be added that in real life, Yvonne had no beef with squids.
