Goofs:
Plot holes: The lack of resources is frequently referred to throughout the series. This is contradicted by the fact that throughout dozens of Eagles are destroyed. As they never run out they must be replacing them, the alternative is they have dozens of spare craft on a moon-base.See more »

I love this show like family, 18 June 2004
Author: poopville from Grand Rapids

This show calls up happy memories of laying on my grandma's shag carpeted living room, totally enthralled by this show. It was the mid 70s and we didn't even have a space shuttle yet. The ships, clothes and hardware of this show looked like something I could possibly experience in my lifetime. I figured that by 1999, I would be living and working in space as an adult. Well none of that really panned out but all these years later, this show is still great fun to watch. It has a style and mood that is so unique. I hope they never try to do a remake. Part of it's charm is how 70s it is. The bell bottom uniforms, the sketchy science, the sideburns. It's all so perfect. As a child, this show made me excited for the future like nothing else.
