After the Apollo missions of the 1960s and early 1970s, space exploration was very nearly abandoned as public pressure mounted for money to be concentrated on problems down here on Earth.

But, by a whisker, funding was granted for a base on the Moon. Greatly expanded, it became the international Moonbase Alpha we know today. 311 personnel serve in a perfect, self-sustaining, artificial environment – their mission statement: ‘to forward the frontiers of human knowledge and science’.

Dateline: 13th September 1999. The interplanetary Meta Probe is due to be launched from a platform orbiting the Moon. What could possibly go wrong?


Based on the original tv series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

Recorded on: 8-9 July 2019
Recorded at: Moat Studios


The new Space: 1999 is like Line of Duty on the moon

Radio Times

Big Finish have lovingly recreated the original pilot and even the original TV credit sequence with the new cast.

Bleeding Cool

Briggs’ adaptation is brought vividly to life by a marvelous cast. Thank you Big Finish for getting me hooked on another Gerry Anderson narrative.

Sci-Fi Pulse

On the evidence of this debut outing, this audio series looks set to retain the epic scope and tone of the TV original. 

Sci-Fi Bulletin

Going on the evidence of this very first blast into deep space, it’s safe to say that this moon rocks.
