Ok we have all bases covered, I cant find the War of the worlds thread, so I figured I do one myself. First film or recent, collector, any series?, if you dig tri-pods and slimy aliens who are jealous of prosperous humans< sounds familiar eh? lol;) This is your thread.

You know three legs is a rather poor design flaw, because damage one leg and the walker is down. Now a four leg walker would be better, but a five leg walker would be much better. Maybe a 6 or 8 leg walker would be the best for movement and ability to explore.

War of the Worlds ( 1988 )
War of the Worlds: At the end of the 1953 film "War of the World", earth is saved from alien invaders when they are apparently killed by common bacteria. However, what if the aliens weren't really dead? In "War of the Worlds" the aliens from the 1953 invasion are brought out of suspended animation when radiation kills the infecting bacteria. Now the aliens launch a genocidal war against an unsuspecting Earth, using their ability to take over human bodies to allow them to move freely. Dr. Harrison Blackwood teams up with microbiologist Suzanne McCullough, computer programmer Norton Drake, and army Lt. Colonel Paul Ironhorse to save the world from this alien menace. In the second season, Harrison and Suzanne are joined by mercenary John Kincaid, who help them fight in a post-apocalyptic urban wasteland against a second wave of invaders dedicated to the death of all life on earth.

You know I saw that series, you officially jogged my memory, it was filmed near the same time STNG was filmed....

Yeah, I remember watching it.
It was interesting and cool at first but slowly lost its glitter as episodes continued.
By the time it ended, I didn't care much for it. I remember hearing about its demise and thinking...meh.

Yeah, for that matter they could kill this planet with one small nudge to just the right comet in the Oort Cloud. Then there's the whole Gamma Beam thing.
The most realistic way requires no planetary presence.
