When Koenig and Carter discover the crashed Eagle and their deceased duplicates inside, we see Carter was piloting the Eagle and Koenig was the copilot. In the normal time line, Koenig always pilots the Eagle (right seat), and Carter is the copilot (left seat.) See more »


It is impossible to have two bodies (spacecraft, Moons, whatever) in the same orbit and one going faster. If one Moon was, it would have to be in a different orbit, most likely in lower orbit. See more »

This is a very weird episode....even for "Space: 1999".
1 May 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with one of the crew being knocked out during some weird inter-stellar occurrence. When she awakens, she thinks that, among other things, that Carter and Commander Koenig have been dead for some time. And, even weirder, she thinks she is Allen Carter's widow and she now has a chance to see her dead husband!!! Does she have precognition about some things that are to come? Is she just crazy? Or, is there some other odd explanation?

If this isn't weird enough, now the Moon has just assumed orbit back around the Earth! Considering that the had just been floating s aimlessly in another solar system, this IS pretty weird! Weirder yet--the Earth isn't answering Moonbase's signals. Weirdest yet...once in orbit, they soon see ANOTHER Moon--an exact copy with a Moonbase as well!! Amazingly enough...it STILL keeps getting weirder!! Overall, not a bad episode, but not one of the best. Interesting but a bit silly...even for "Space: 1999".

By the way, if you think you recognize the pretty lady who plays guest lead, that's Judy Geeson. You may recognize her from "Brannigan" or any one of the many, many British or American TV shows on which she's appeared.
