Flangepart “Where’s the stinkin’ camera…oh. Can’t see crap between these teeth…” David Fullam Second season Space 1999 must die. bgbear_rnh Is it one of the beasties Maya(sp) changed into on Space:1999? Ericb I remember this episode. She was actually trying to infiltrate a group of these things. It took them a while to figure it out. Not the brightest of monsters apparently. Eric Hinkle Wait now, you’re saying this is actually a beautiful woman? I’m guessing that Maya was a shapeshifter? bgbear_rnh Yes, and her father was Brian Blesssssed! Beckoning Chasm The one episode I saw had her being hunted by aliens called Dorcons (led by Patrick Troughton, no less). To try and escape, she turned into a potted plant. That’s all I remember. Rock Baker I can’t say I understand your thinking, David. The second season was essentially a British version of Star Trek, considerably more enjoyable than the bland first season. The differences between the two seasons can be summed up by their opening themes, the first being somber and the second charging. bgbear_rnh and they found a new tailor somewhere out in space ;) David Fullam Sorry, I hated it with a passion and always will. if I want the real Star Trek, that’s what I’ll watch. Rock Baker Fortunately, yes. Those first season uniforms never did look very good to my eye. Oh, I can sort of see what they were going for, but my brain demands a bit of symmetry when it comes to uniforms! Flangepart Dorcons…and the British fans wondered why the Yanks all snickered. Luke Blanchard Maya herself was Catherine Schell, who played Claudine Litton in THE RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER. She was also the Countess Scarlioni in the DOCTOR WHO story “City of Death”, one of the hypnotised women at Blofeld’s facility in ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE, and (moving into Jabootu territory) the heroine in MOON ZERO TWO. Marsden I believe it did in 1977. Jimmy He looks so happy! BobTanaka Mortimer Snerd in “The Bat People” Gamera977 I dunno, I’m a big Martin Landau fan but 1999 just always left me cold. Can’t say I really hated it or anything but like ST: Voyager and Enterprise it just put me to sleep.
