A low-budget science fiction series that followed the adventures of the crew of the galactic patrol ship Phoenix Five, 'the most sophisticated craft in the Earth Space Control Fleet.' This handpicked team - Captain Roke, a typical captain with a solution to every problem; Ensign Adam Hargraves, a young space cadet always ready to shoot first and skip the questions; compassionate Cadet Tina Culbrick; and their computeroid Carl - roamed the planets protecting galactic citizens and warding off the repeated plots and attacks of the evil humanoid Zodian and a rebel scientist Platonus.

It seemed great at the time to an impressionable 10 year old
I remember this show from the early 1970's and would have been about 10 at the time.
I don't remember many of the details except that despite it not being as good as Doctor Who, Star Trek or Land Of The Giants, my other favourite shows at the time, I enjoyed it.
I'd love to see it again to find out if the sets and spaceship models really were as bad as I remember them, and if the plots were as silly. But then, isn't that half the fun. Don't we think the same thing when we watch the original Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers serials. The lack of any real knowledge of science, and poor special effects, overacting and any other similar complaint doesn't detract from the fact that it was fun for children.
