And if I am not mistaken, "resistance is useless" is used in both Hitchhikers Guide and Doctor Who......

That's... an interesting point. I had forgotten about the Whovian connection, but now that you mention it the phrase is a Dalek catch-phrase.

Since Douglas Adams was a writer on Doctor Who, I wonder if the Vogons ultimately got it from the Daleks.

Or the Daleks gave it to the Vogons...

I was thinking Daleks too.
So what are you doing for your birthday?
