Haven't seen Dr Who since the first couple Matt Smith episodes. And I guess I have seen NCIS now that I think about it. Didn't leave much of an impression it seems.

One of the least offensive of the odd suggestions.

LOL.

Nice job, but the smoke getting to the outside of the helmet makes me think the helmet isn't all that airtight (which is probably a good thing so he doesn't suffocate)

Yeah, well, there is a lot wrong with that "tough Sarge" image from Starcraft:

1) In a sealed environment suit designed at least sometimes for micro-gravity situations, the smoke wouldn't be rising from the cigar like that because:
a) in micro-gravity the smoke would just gather around the lit end. OK, so maybe this guy isn't in such, still
b) in any situation where the suit would have to sealed (such as a non-Earthlike or high/low/no atmosphere), there would be fans to actively move the air inside the suit to prevent any local CO2 buildups especially around the face. With the smoke rising like that, both the sarge and his cigar would be out in a few minutes from lack of oxygen.

2) "HANG ON...dammit."
<whoot>WARNING...SUIT BREACH...<whoot>WARNING...SUIT BRE...air purge complete
"Hey, Sarge, you OK?"
"Yeah, lost my cigar again."

3) While most of the Starcraft environments take place on planetary surfaces, there were some that were in micro-gravity (though, of course, gameplay never accurately reflected that because frankly play would be impossible). One thing you wouldn't want floating around inside a helmet are bits of cigar ash: "CRAP...hang on. Gotta get this ash outta my eye."

4) Where is his water nipple so he can get a drink of water? I guess one could get used to wedging the cigar somewhere so one could get a drink, but it would seem to be a whole lot of wasted time and attention in a distinctly hostile situation with aliens on the prowl. And I could imagine the disgust: "OH GODDAM! I got one of Sarge's old helmets again!"

That Starcraft image is from the teaser movie for Starcraft 2 when they first publicly announced they were releasing it. I remember watching it. Guy is brought in handcuffs to a room where the suit is built around him by robotic arms, then he steps out of the darkness into the light as his helmet opens and he says "Hell, is about time!" The helmet is open. The light on the left (his right) is a heads up display that the suits have. You can see it projecting onto his right cheek. I agree with the fact that smoking a cigar in a suit like that would be dangerous and not practical.
