SF novel, based on the cult UK tv series.

''SPACE 1999 was a UK-made tv series, with 48 episodes between 1975 and 1977, created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson - who had previously produced a number of other sf series (STINGRAY, THUNDERBIRDS and others) with puppets - was obviously inspired in part by the success of Star Trek. The format has a group of people - live actors - travelling through the Galaxy, visiting various planets and encountering strange lifeforms; but, where the Star Trek characters travelled on a spaceship, the Space 1999 personnel do their interplanetary wandering on Earth's runaway Moon - an unwieldy gimmick that must have caused many frustrations to the writers. A major flaw was a scandalous disregard for basic science: stars are confused with asteroids, the Moon's progress through space follows no physical laws, and parsecs are assumed to be a unit of velocity. The series was cancelled in 1977'' (John Brosnan & others/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
