When I am writing this comment it is nearly 3.00am in the morning. I had this flash of memory coming back to me which reminds me of this gem. I was hardly 10 years old when I saw it for the first time.I fondly remember it for its contrast to the original novel I read later in my life. Ever since I have been searching its name and origins. Glimpses I remember include a blind greedy man with the stick being betrayed, a beautiful circular space craft called Hispaniola and the new planet full of leeches and broken space crafts. The series marries a teenager interest in adventures to his obsession about space and alien life. A special thanks to all who contributed before me regarding info on this beautiful series. I think sites like Amazon.com should store a few copies so that it is not lost forever. As for me I wish I could watch it again but maybe this wish will never be fulfilled. After seventeen years, thanks to the internet, I now know what to look for.
