Trivia

The James Bond series was on hiatus (which was also filmed at Pinewood Studios), so the set for M's office was used as the office of Commissioner Dixon. See more »

Goofs

During the flashback scene, both Bergman and Dixon point out that the Probeship's black box indicates a series of mysterious contacts on the scanner, which may or may not be spaceships. Then Koenig states that the black box recorded a breathable atmosphere "aboard that alien spacecraft". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Dr. Helena Russell: [voice over] It was the eight hundredth and seventy seventh day since our moon left Earth. We were between galaxies drifting through empty space, when Tony Cellini began to believe that he was closing for a second time with his mortal enemy.

beware of the monster
3 September 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is a special episode because it's all about the history of the people on moonbase. It's being narrated by Dr Helena Russell which gave it a movie atmosphere but not only that. It also has creepy music on board ans some excellent effects done on-camera with a monster. And that part makes this an outstanding episode.

Going back in time before the disaster of 13th September 1999 we also see them on earth and on the moonbase before the moon leaves earth's orbit. But not only that, we do go a lot in space too with various spaceships to discover.

The acting is excellent too even as we don't see the normal crew that much, it's all about another crew discovering a new planet. It's Gianni Garko who really takes this episode to another level.

For many fans this is the best episode of season one, for me it was the best one too.
