Major Spielberg was a naval officer during World War II. When the time travelers arrive in February 1944, a US Navy officer sees their spacecraft, but his commander dismisses the possibility of a UFO and then says, "You can tell your son about when he's born, Major Spielberg." His sighting of the Futurians' time machine would later inspire his son to change the cinematic world forever.
- His commander said "You can tell your son about when he's born, Major Spielberg," an obvious reference to Steven Spielberg, whose father Arnold served in the war and whose war stories inspired the frequent WWII settings of his films. It is presumed that after the Second World War, Major Spielberg inspired his descendant Steven Spielberg with the sighting.
