Space 1999


Sandwiched between 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Wars, we were feasted with two years of  Space: 1999.

Martin Landau and Barbara Bain where given a mission impossible to make a successful sci-fi series since Star Trek. I was always fascinated by the Eagle spaceships on the show.  These slow ships were as close as you could get to a space shuttle. They had no chance in a dog fight with any ship from Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica or Star Wars. They were as sluggish as were most of the scripts of the two season of  48 episodes. Here is a franchise that needs to answer to where the hell our moon disappeared since 1999.
