Maya is easily overwhelmed by Sanderson, to the point where she needs to transform to fight him off. However, in previous episodes, she has demonstrated superhuman strength, sufficient to lift Tony off his feet without any sign of exertion. See more »

Well, at least it's different...

This show begins with a cult-like crew member getting his three minions to try everything they can to get the Moonbase to do nothing when there is a pending collision with a planet. While the planet clearly has a toxic atmosphere and cannot support life, this nutty guy insists that the crew should do nothing--and everything will work out fine. But, common sense says that Koenig should order the atomic piles to be exploded in a last-minute effort to force the Moon on a different course. In the meantime, the plan is for all the crew members to wait in Eagles in space--waiting until after the explosions have occurred. However, the nutter and his minions have other plans--and it might just include killing Koenig and Maya and stopping the nuclear detonations...all for the good of Alpha as the cult-like guy insists that doing nothing is their best course of action...or 'inaction' in this case.

So is this a good episode of "Space: 1999"? Well, not really...but at least it's not a blatant rip-off of episodes from "Star Trek" and there is only one goofy-looking alien in the show (when Maya does one of her transformation). The main problem, however, is that it's not particularly interesting. However, in a strange but cute moment, you do get to see a 'Mini-Maya'--which you'll just have to see to believe.
