Stranger than true: Heard a short while back most of the Moonbase Alpha sets were designed for a second season of UFO which was to have more moon based stories.
Absolutely right. Towards the end of season 1 the American Ratings dropped and ufo was cancelled,but they had already built the sets so space1999 was born.
The question is did the rating drop cuz the stories got crappy or did the lower ratings bring on the crappy stories?
Short sighted network.
