Storyline

As the Alphans are planning to explore the planet Ariel, a 'missile' attaches itself to the en route Eagle. Upon returning to Alpha, the 'missile' gives the Alphans a lunar atmosphere. But the joy at the possibility of making a new world out of the Moon is short lived, as the moon does not enter orbit around the planet or its sun, and Alpha faces destruction from the newly acquired lunar air.

Trivia

Helena reports that the planet's atmosphere contains more than four times the oxygen of Earth's. The Alphans seem a little too anxious to get to the planet, as prolonged exposure to the atmosphere would most likely cause oxygen poisoning. See more »

Goofs

When air starts being pumped into Moonbase Alpha, a hatch is slammed shut, but clouds of vapor continue to seep around what should be an airtight seal. This is followed by a scene in which a window in the control room is lowered - but why would this be deemed necessary on a lunar base, and why is there no lock in case of accidental use? See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Prof. Victor Bergman: A sun like ours. Planet Ariel with its atmosphere. It's a perfectly balanced little solar system.

here you can see the effects

This is great and not only for the unbelievable story but in this episode something went completely wrong concerning the effects. It's so easy to spot that the eagles are hanging on wires when they are in the air. And just watch the infiny at the end, also easy to spot that it is just a curtain but if you can get past that part an laughing is over then you're ready for a great episode.

Moonbase transferred into an atmosphere just like earth done by aliens and just have a look how happy they are that they even are playing tennis. It even starts raining. Of course things just can happen what we do see here but place yourself back into 1976 when this was aired.
