A Match Made in Space

The alien on the front cover of George McFly's novel A Match Made in Space.

The alien was a character in George McFly's first novel A Match Made in Space, which was published by Probert Publishing[1] in 1985 and made into a movie in 1989.


According to a story by Michael Klastorin on the front page of the October 22, 2015 issue of USA Today, Hollywood were planning a remake of the movie adaptation of A Match Made in Space, to be directed and co-written by Robert Zemeckis.

When Klastorin spoke to George at his home in Hill Valley about casting ideas for the remake, according to George there was only one man in his mind who could play the alien, and hoped he could convince Zemeckis to cast Christopher Lloyd in the role.[2]

On September 7, 1893, Dr. Emmett Brown traveled in the second DeLorean time machine to October 27, 2017 to find an eighth wedding anniversary gift for his wife Clara; he eventually bought a copy of Lighthouse at the End of the World by Clara's favorite author, Jules Verne, from the Blast from the Past antique/memorabilia store. While in 2017 Hill Valley, Doc passed the Holomax Theater where the movie remake of A Match Made in Space was being shown. The exterior of the building created a giant holographic image of the alien which appeared to reach down to grab Doc, during which he remembered that although the original movie hadn't been great, "the book was really something special".
