Another tribond puzzle: find the unifying theme of these three things.

Richard, Saturn, Redstone

Note: The answer will be a connecting theme, having nothing to do with the makeup of the words themselves. No need to consider other possibilities, e.g. all words are proper nouns, or contain the letter "r".

    $\begingroup$ I'm not the downvoter, but I can see why. Having 2 first names out of the three makes it very broad indeed. $\endgroup$ – Matt Apr 13 '16 at 17:54

    $\begingroup$ @Deusovi They may sometimes be too broad, but I don't think this one is. After all no one has yet suggested even one answer that fits all three. $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Apr 13 '16 at 18:12

    $\begingroup$ My problem is simply that there's too many possible non-answers. All 3 words have an 'r'. All three words have a vowel in the second letter. All three words are proper nouns. I could go on. $\endgroup$ – Khale_Kitha Apr 13 '16 at 18:50

    $\begingroup$ I think I know the answer, even if it's too broad, but can't answer now. $\endgroup$ – Dan Russell Apr 13 '16 at 19:38

Maybe it's

Maurice "The Rocket" Richard
Saturn V Rocket
Redstone Rocket

    $\begingroup$ seems to be correct, as it also matches the earlier versions of the question, where Roger and Clemens appeared in the third place instead of Redstone. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Clemens $\endgroup$ – elias Apr 15 '16 at 11:01
  • $\begingroup$ Dangit, here I was waiting for a reopen, and you answered this first. ;_; $\endgroup$ – feelinferrety Apr 15 '16 at 17:30

EDIT : They are

comic book characters/villains
Richard The Warlock
Saturn Queen

  • $\begingroup$ upvote for giving a valid response, but not the one I was thinking of. Mine does not rely on specialized knowledge of comics. $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Apr 14 '16 at 2:36

Well, for the first two at least...

Richard Wagner wrote The Ring of the Nibelung
Saturn is famously known as the ringed planet

I'm not sure about Roger tho.
