Space:1999 Y3 Ep24: Home

We sometimes imagine how we would have liked our favorite science fiction shows to end when they were cut short and canceled in their prime. Space:1999, Star Trek, Firefly.

I happened upon this wonderfully detailed image of the Eagle crashed on Earth and thought what a fitting end it could have been after three dark years in space, but of course a proper finale to Space:1999 in a Year Three was never to be.

This image is a testament to our imaginations and it was discovered by accident over at Sci-Fi Air Show. We can imagine what could have been. Perhaps, in the end, it is the void left by the sudden departure of these classics that continues to fuel our love and support for them. It might just be one reason.

Hi SFF:

I saw this post title and my heart leapt for a split second. Space:199 Year Three Episode 24? I wish!!!!

If only it were so, but then again, I think Powys is really doing a terrific job adding to the (literary...) universe of Space:1999 and heading the series into that elusive, much-desired Year 3...

Great post!

best,
JKM

ha! I know. I see things like this and my heart jumps out of my chest.

I've been coasting a bit here into the new year my friend. Taking it easy for a change I suppose.

Thanks so much for writing and I want you to know I almost mentioned all of the wonderful work over at Powys in this very post because it is indeed there that the story lives on and, as I mentioned, that imagination takes flight. So thanks for mentioning it John.

Best to you in the New Year.

Thank you Andrea for stopping and I certainly don't take credit for the wonderful image. It's a beauty though!

Do a search on "Message From Moonbase Alpha" to see a short film about what happened to the Alphans.

Albert.
Thanks. I actually did get around to seeing Message From Moonbase. It's on one of my DVDs. I think it was on the Fanderson disc I bought from that fanclub.

Anyway, I did see it and it was a bit of a let down. It wasn't as good as I had hoped, but obviously done by fans with love.

Thanks for mentioning it though because sometimes I don't know about these things. Cheers, sff
