Performers, Cast and Crew:
The first six episodes of the BBC sci-fi show are included in this set. Originally aired in 1975, the discs include:
"Breakaway" - Commander John Koenig (Martin Landau) combs Moonbase Alpha in search of a virus that has preyed upon the crew of a space probe bound for planet Meta. The fate of the Moon depends on discovering the source of the disease before it destroys everyone.
"Matter of Life and Death" - When a ship sent to investigate planet Terra Nova returns with Lee Russell -- the long-lost husband of Helena Russell (Barbara Bain) -- strange phenomena begin to point to an imminent disaster surrounding Moonbase Alpha.
"Black Sun" - Victor (Barry Morse) works feverishly to build a force field to protect the moon from the black sun that slowly draws them into its orbit. Koenig puts together an Eagle craft to evacuate select crew members.
"Ring Around the Moon" - A probe takes over the body of a crew member and manipulates him until he dies. Helena will be next if the probe is not stopped.
"Earthbound" - When Kaldorians crash on the Moon, one of them suffers a horrible death. The aliens demand a human in exchange, and Commissioner Simmonds offers himself.
"Another Time, Another Place" - In a bizarre twist of the fabric of space and time, the Moon ends up orbiting earth once again. Regina Kesslan goes mad from sun poisoning and another moon appears to be headed in a course of direct collision with Moonbase Alpha.
