Storyline

Earth's Moon is ripped from orbit by a massive nuclear explosion and cast adrift in deep space. It is displaced further into the unknown by two space warps and into range of the volcanic planet Psychon, where the crew of Moonbase Alpha hope to obtain a mineral needed for their survival. But they are lured into a trap by Mentor of Psychon, who wants to drain their souls into a machine for energy needed to transform Psychon back to the paradise it once was. Mentor's daughter, Maya, who has the ability of personal molecular transformation, realizes how fanatical her father has become and helps the Alphans to stop her father. But in the struggle, Mentor's machine's power is released, triggering a series of explosions that cause cataclysm on Psychon and fevered distress in grief-stricken Maya. In the second part Koenig and Tony explore an alien ship while the moon passes through a space warp, leaving the astronauts stranded. Meanwhile, Maya is undergoing some strange disease that causes ... Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Less than adequate compilation of two more than adequate episodes
26 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

Space: 1999's unfairly maligned second season opened with "The Metamorph", wherein the personnel of Moonbase Alpha are threatened by an obsessive alien scientist on an awesomely realized planet of volcanoes, a scientist intent upon transforming his boiling planet back to the temperate, Earth-like habitat that it once had. Technically, the production of "The Metamorph" is admirable by any standards, culminating in a spectacular planetary explosion, and "The Metamorph" is also the vehicle for the introduction of Maya, biologically transforming daughter of the obsessive scientist on Moonbase Alpha. "Space Warp" is a later second season episode of Space: 1999 wherein Maya is stricken with fever and visions of her home planet's extinction and molecular-transforms into rampaging beasts in a vain effort to return to her planet of origin, an exciting premise that most viewers fail to appreciate because Space: 1999 is not allowed the same licence to use monsters of the kind that made Doctor Who so very popular. Cosmic Princess is an editing together of "The Metamorph" and "Space Warp" with bulk scene deletion and a blending of drastically different musical scores from Space: 1999's two seasons, and as such it is not the ideal way to watch Space: 1999's second season.
