Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - Time of the Hawk, Part 1 (1981)

Same helmet as previously featured in the TV show although the suit seems a little different in this season 2 opener.

Afronauts (2014)

 
Interesting sounding short film.  Go here to learn more. http://powderroomfilms.com/film/afronauts/

Storm Catcher (1999)

Not seen this but from what I've read I think these are high altitude flight suits as featured in this Dolph Lundgren film; Storm Catcher. Later on though, they intermingle with the spacesuits from Soldier (1998) for varied Firefly (2002) appearances and then and go on to appear in Start Trek Voyager in their new hybrid form.  I do like it when a couple of different suits come together to make a 3rd variant, although it does make it hard to catalogue. It happened with the Moon Zero Two and the Doppelganger spacesuits

A Suitography of the "Soldier" Spacesuits (1998 and onwards)

A modest start but you know there has to be more appearances of this suit out there
Soldier (1998)
Star Trek Voyager - Blink of an Eye (2000)  (Helmet)
Firefly (2002) (Helmet and Suit but separate)

See also Storm Catcher (1999) for origin of the yellow suit

Sargasso by Edwin Corley (1978) Cover by Paul Alexander

Originally published the previous year, this is the cover for the 1978 paperback edition with art by Paul Alexander
Its a very striking and captivating image, to see an astronaut at the bottom of the ocean, and although you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, this one does scream pick me up and read me

Star Trek Voyager - Blink of an Eye (2000)

Voyager goes to investigate an M-class planet, discovering it is out of temporal sync with the surrounding galaxy. On this planet, time passes extremely rapidly compared to the rest of space. Voyager becomes trapped in the planet's gravitational field and is stuck....
 
 


I gave up on Star Trek Voyager long before this episode so thanks to Tim for pointing me towards it.  It actually looks quite interesting.
 
Update: Helmets are from Soldier (1998) and suits are from Storm Catcher (1999) - thanks you Chris
