There is a rumor that the spaceship Orions lift off sequence was filmed in color and then processed to black and white (the rest of the show was done completely in black and white). The intention was to have already an insert shot for a second season that would have been produced for color-television. Colour-television was launched in Germany on 25 August 1967 during the 25th "Funkausstellung" in Berlin but to the regret of the "Raumpatrouille"-fans a second season never got off the ground.

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 »

This series is fun. Released before Star Trek it has a great storyline about the future of mankind. But as usual it was canceled by the german TV despite of its success. Rumor has it, that there are plans to relaunch the series with Roland Emmerich as producer. Lets hope and see!!
