Trivia

According to Theo Nischwitz, the principal chief of special effects for this series who was an acquaintance, all effects were photographed & rendered in 35mm black & white Agfa stock with the single exception of those scenes in the starlight casino which contained the enlarged Berlin aquarium fish floating above and in background of the underwater base. - For those the standard blue screen effects of the day were used by draping blue cloth behind all window openings of the set and as such color stock had to be used in order for the FX team to be able to add those fish later from separately shot stock footage. Contrary to popular belief the enlarged fish were not a mistake but rather a deliberate decision in a nod to a post-apocalyptic setting. See more »

Goofs

There is a large hole in the top of the glass helmets of the spacesuits which was used during filming to blow in warm air from a hair-dryer to prevent the glass steaming up. See more »

Quotes

Introduction: [opening narration] What seems like a fairy tale today may be reality tomorrow. Here we have a fairy tale of the day after tomorrow.

SciFi from Germany
7 September 1999 | by (Duesseldorf, Germany) – See all my reviews

This series were my first contact with science fiction and after 30 years it's great to see them again. The series are repeated in Germany from time to time and it's a lot of laugh to see a flat-iron or a faucet, which are used as ship-controls. After the mission the crew met in the bar, which was deep underwater and you can see the fishes through the windows. IMHO there were two things, which made this mini-series successful. First, the crew-members were from different countries which was explained by their names (it was the time of the cold war). On the other side, there were extraterrestrial enemies, the "frogs", who wanted to slave the earth. And all the things were "sciene-fiction", they had video-phones (in a time where only a handful of people had a phone), they lived on the ground of the sea, they were flying with space-ships through the universe.
