Trivia

The special effect for the series were made with very poor materials. For the ship controls were used, among other things, an iron and some desk pencil sharpeners. The robot's hands were made using an ice cream spoon and the effect of the planet explosions were made by blowing some rice and coffee with compressed air. Despite the effectiveness of the special effects for the extremely low budget, Bavaria TV canceled the show after seven episodes due to high costs. 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 »

best Sci-Fi of that time
12 April 2000 | by (Bonn, Germany) – See all my reviews

The series was shown on TV before Star Trek had appeared. If you compare the special effects of Raumpatrouille to those of the first Star Trek pilot (which had not been aired until the early 90s), they were very much alike. Of course, today most people just laugh at such effects. But unlike Star Trek, the plot of Raumpatrouille and its political contents was far more symbolic and, I think, more interesting. Unfortunately, the series never evolved any further and stopped after the seventh episode for some reason. The German TV station Pro7 announced a continuation of Raumpatrouille in the 90s, but I doubt that it will ever be finished. And if it was, it will most probably not have the same taste as the original series.
