      Re: Space 1999

      Here is the episode called: Earthbound.The guest star is Sir Christopher Lee.



      This episode,along with Sir Christopher's appearance in it,was being discussed at the christopherleeweb forum not so long ago.It's nice that people remember these obscure acting roles he had and still discuss them.
      I remember Nick Tate when i was a child,he was in a lot of programmes on tv.He always played the strong,rugged type of heroic guy.He was a very popular actor to watch for school children in my area,and everyone liked him on tv.

          1. I was about 9 when the series came out, and even then I was unimpressed with it. I didn't give a damn for the uncharismatic cast, especially Martin Landau (though I liked him in Ed Wood). Some years later I saw some repeats, and my opinion didn't change.

            Used to enjoy watching the series, seemed to be on all the time. I suppose it hasn't aged that well being sort of hip and 70's in design. Also used to have one of the Eagle space craft toys. Think the kid over the road ended up with it the following year when mum had one of her sort outs. Just jogged a memory. Wasn't there a space 1999 ice lolly ?

                Stars Martin Landau & Caroline Bain

                One thing that puzzled me: Virtually every episode they crashed one of their Eagle shuttles. How many did they have? Or did they have an Eagle shuttle manufacturing plant on Moonbase Alpha? Obviously new ones were not delivered from Earth as the moon had drifted too far away to allow this

                    That's how it should be really seeing their characters were an item sort of on the series

                      Re: Space 1999

                      I loved this series although the quality of the episodes dropped when producer Freddie Freiberger came onboard in the 2nd season and got rid of Barry Morse as Victor Bergman though the addition of the beautiful Catherine Schell as Maya was a good one. I wished I'd kept the toy Eagle I had. They go for a lot of money these days.

                        This kind of parallels what they did with Star Trek: Voyager and Seven of Nine I suppose...

                            Thing is it is only slagged off against modern shows, which you can`t really compare against, but for it`s time it was bloody good

                              I've sometimes heard it compared to the Dr Who made at the same time.

                                The episode "Dragons Domain" was the one that scared me! Sheesh - crew members being forced into the thing and being pushed out as steaming skeletons - It made this, at the time 8 year old, poo his pants! ;-)
