Today's selection has been made by whaleyland:
LEGO in the mid- to late 1990s was in a strange transitional period, and the UFO subtheme of Space was certainly no exception. I purchased 6979 Interstellar Starfighter in July 1997 using a combination of birthday money and allowance. It was only the second “expensive” set I had ever purchased with my own money and, like the first one (for the record, 6494 Magic Mountain Time Lab), I had no plans for which set I was going to buy when I walked into Kiddie World that summer afternoon. I certainly did not foresee returning home with this unusual vessel.
