Trivia

The take-off sequence(s) of the "Orion" from it's sub-sea base is in fact a "alka-seltzer" dissolving in water. The image was turned upside down (thus make the bubbles appearing to move downwards) and a cut-out spaceship picture was placed in the foreground over the tablet. See more »

Goofs

You can see two crewmembers in the fifth episode "Kampf um die Sonne" (Translation: "Fight for the Sun"). You can see them in the scene when the "Lanzet"-shuttle of the "Chroma"-people crashes. They were not fast enough to duck behind the shuttle. Actually both should only destroy the shuttle with a pair of wires. See more »

Quotes

Female ordinance: [slightly out of breath] Commander, you should immediately make contact with Headquarters of the Terrestrial Space Reconnaissance Group. Hurry... It is urgent Mayor...
Cliff Allister McLane: [smiling] My agency has a very limited vocabulary: hurry , classified, urgent.

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.
