    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

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

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

    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! ;-)
