Plot Summary

In 1999, Moonbase Alpha, nestled in the Lunar crater Plato, is a scientific research colony and watchdog over silos of atomic waste from Earth stored on the Moon's far side. On September 13, 1999, magnetic energy builds to cause an explosive chain-reaction of the waste, blasting the Moon out of Earth's orbit and off the plane of the ecliptic, out of the Solar System. The inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha are unable to return to Earth and must survive on their wandering Moon as it is displaced further into unknown space by freak space warps. Along the way, they are joined by an alien woman with the ability to change herself into any living creature at will. Written by Kevin McCorry

Trivia Special Effects Supervisor Brian Johnson was asked to helm the special effects for Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977), but his involvement with this series took priority. He was subsequently involved with Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), which forced him to cut short his involvement with Alien (1979), leaving his assistant, Nick Allder (who was also his main Special Effects Assistant on this show), in charge (they both shared an Oscar for special effects for Alien (1979)). Johnson would go on to helm the post-production visual effects on "Aliens" (1986). See more »
Goofs In the pilot episode, the massive explosion on the moon is on the far side, yet the moon is thrown out of earth's orbit. it would be more reasonable to assume that an explosion on the far side would have driven the moon into the earth. See more »

Crazy Credits During the first season, excerpts for each week's episode were incorporated into the opening credits, more specifically the "This Episode" section, which was something of a Gerry Anderson trademark. See more »
Quotes Prof. Victor Bergman: [last message before evacuating Alpha] We are Mankind. We came from planet Earth, and we built this base, called Alpha, to learn more about space. But human error blasted this Moon out of the Earth's orbit. And so, we have traveled the Universe searching for a place to live. Now, we can no longer live here, and we go to face an uncertain future on the planet that has nearly destroyed us. You, whoever you are, who find this empty vessel of Alpha, come and seek us out, if we still exist. Come and teach us all you know. Because, we have learned many things, but most of all, we have learned we still have much to learn.
