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.

God...the only Aussie to comment on this show!. Only remember it when I was really young, but it made an impression on me as a kid. Not sure what adults thought of it. I remember the model shots being a bit dodgy, and it had freaky futuristic sounding music.
I'm sure it would of made Dr who look very sophisticated! :-). Would love to see clips from it. No one in Australia ever mentions this show, and I daresay not many would remember it. The only person I know of that knows it is my g/f, who is a hardkore SF fanatic and knows everything. Hmmm... wonder if Youtube has it? Australian Sci Fi has come a long way since this...thankfully!
