    Theme to be used for the testing of a V1 system boardset.

    Any playfield options for the upper left corner, or might that be a platform for toys?

    #3 2 years ago

    A platform for toys I'd reckoned. My first feeling is the rising gun turret on Alpha.

    Nice...What will be the smash toy?

    Quoted from jlm33:

    Eagle 1 will hover over that area and interact.
    I have 3 different scale models of the eagle to play with for sizing.

    I love to see new homebrew machines. What are you using as software for your machine?

    One of my favorite sci-fi shows! Looking forward to seeing this one progress and how the theme gets integrated.

    #8 2 years ago

    great show, but like only 50 people are alive that even remember it.

    #9 2 years ago

    I remember this show just because one of my "hand me down" toys was the ship and I loved it.

    #10 2 years ago

    Show was fun when I was a kid. Could be great Boomer-gen and older Gen-Xer theme.

    #11 2 years ago

    Lol I did t realize it was a show, thought it was an original theme...guess I am too young lol

    #12 2 years ago

    It was late 60’s, early seventies. It was both campy and some episodes had great writing. Ships were badass at the time. I got an Eagle-1 for Christmas and thought it was the best present ever!

    Put in the monster from Dragon's Domain if you want to give players nightmares.

    Oh snap! Was that the one that spit out bones? Creeped me out!!

    #15 2 years ago

    I was six years old when I saw it do that.

    I was 6 also. Scary episode at that age.

    #17 2 years ago

    Make that the toy in front of the magnet and have it rise up and down between absent (flush with playfield) and fully up (open mouth). Lock balls by hitting targets behind it when it's down and the magnet then catches the ball, the monster comes up, and the magnet does a release-and-pulse to flick the ball into its open mouth to drop into a subway lock, thus mirroring the episode.

    If it can also come halfway up, you can also use it as a bash toy and kill the monster by hitting the exposed glowing eye.

    #18 2 years ago

    Came out in the late 70's, two seasons. Season 1 was excellent, season 2, not so much. The Anderson's were getting divorced, so things went down hill fast. All of Season 1 is great, Dragon's Domain was the last episode of Season 1 I think.

    I still watch the show on DVD, lots and lots of Hammer Horror stars including Cushing, Lee, and Darth Vader.

    #19 2 years ago

    I wached all the episodes, but can remember specific highlights.
    Love to watch it though.
    At the time there was also Battlestar Galactica....

    Well I'm one of them. The series is playing now on over the air Comet TV in my area. Brings back a lot of memories.

    #21 2 years ago

    Another one of the 50 who remember it, and remember it fondly I do......

    UFO was another classic BBC Sci-Fi, even predates Space1999

    Hmmm never saw that one, Doctor Who yes but not that one.

    Here is some info on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFO_(TV_series)

    #24 2 years ago

    UFO is the better tv series (IMHO),.. the opening music is brilliant, the UFO’s and interceptors are brilliant,.. and the purple wigs on the women running moon base is just too cool. Space 1999 was what was supposed to be series #3 of UFO I believe. If there is ever a UFO tv series themed pin made,.. I am front of queue.

    There was a UFO series on during the late 70's, but it was pretty straight. There were 2 Air Force Officers who went around and investigated UFO sightings. I remember watching it, and thinking the effects were very good for it's time. Have not seen it since.

    Anybody ever watch Land of the Giants? Barely remember it, but is it any good? The kids version was Dr. Shrinker, a Marty/Kroft series.

    I remember Land of the Lost from the Kroft team. Marshall, Will and Holly...….Slestaks...

    Not that one, it was a prime time series from the late 60's/early 70's.

    There are still a lot of us in NZ and Australia who watched, enjoyed and remember the Andersons shows.. a wee bit more than 50 of us,.. probably more popular out here.

    I think that show was called Project Blue Book. I remember it too. Land of the Giants was a cool show when I was a kid. I really liked it a lot and watched it Saturday mornings. It was an Irwin Allen series.

    #32 2 years ago

    Ok, maybe 100 worldwide.

    Look - I love the show, I used to watch it as a kid and have very fond memories of it. Some of it has aged very well due to good writing, effects, and production(Season 1), but it isn't popular nor remembered well.

    Land of the Giants was a pretty good show. There was a show then called "Time Tunnel " that was good also.

    That's a Season 2 shot. Stick with something from Season 1.

    The best part of the series for me was the opening credits, they way the spliced in shots from the upcoming episode, then it cut to Barry Morse. Great memories.

    #38 2 years ago

    Dragon's Domain is also a memorable episode because monsters were used sparingly in season one, they gave it a hell of an impact and left it an enigma without explaining what it really was. Season two with Fred Frieberger as producer had monsters up the wazoo. There's no way a good Space 1999 game could leave out Maya though.

    It’s been more than 40 years, and that picture still wigs me out.

    #40 2 years ago

    The special effects were pretty good in Space 1999 and the sets were convincing for the day. It was certainly more convincing then Dr Who in that respect (which I loved) with its cheap, cardboard, wobbly sets The comlock with the little screen in it was pretty cool and the hand laser weapon too.

    UFO used to freak me out as a kid but I couldn't get enough. Skydiver was just the best thing in the world It was a very atmospheric show and there was always a sense of unease when I watched it.

    I loved the upcoming episode clips as well. I'm surprised more TV shows didn't do that. I know the original Mission Impossible series did. They even do it in the opening credits of the movie versions now as well.

    #42 2 years ago

    The whole series is available on shoutfactory TV (http://www.shoutfactorytv.com/). I just rewatched them, much more cheesier than I remember from my childhood, especially Maya's alien creatures - great fun though. Would love a remake with some better science, something more believable. Still, lots of cool concepts.

    #43 2 years ago

    Space 1999 remake by bbc. Like dr who. Winner winner for a Tv show.

    Pin would be good too, but they have not even made a new doctor who yet.

    I think a new show would be kick ass.

    #44 2 years ago

    Can you imagine a new space 1999 that is as good as dr who now or the battle star galactica reboot?

    I can!

    Yup the Maya alien creatures were shit

    I watched a doco on the making of the show and how the producers came in and demanded more Monsters " Monsters are in right now ". The same producers came back to view session 2 episodes and remarked " what's with all the Monsters " management to a T .
    My take on the Monsters is they are all rolled into one Mode from lamest to scariest as the mode shots are collected.
    Perhaps a bone spitting Monster multiball for completion.
    There is way too many episodes to bring every element into what realistically is a 30 minute game from start to wizard mode.
    ....Lots of RED ALERTS though.

    #50 2 years ago

    Loved this show when it premiered on American TV...….

    Built ALL the models!

    Good premise- Earth dumped all its toxic waste on the moon. An explosion in the toxic waste dump sends the moon out of orbit.

    My fav- Maya, the alien who could change into any living creature.

    I was into all the shows mentioned in this thread....
    BSG, Project Blue book, UFO.....
    I thought the BSG reboot was good!
