This title was released in February 2021. It will be exclusively available to buy from the Big Finish website until March 31st 2021, and on general sale after this date.

The Moon has been sucked through a wormhole in space and has arrived countless miles away from its proper place. The crew of Moonbase Alpha can only guess at the resultant devastation left behind on Earth. They must decide how best they can survive. Some Alphans find it difficult to let go of the notion of returning to Earth, others are facing the reality that they must find another home to ensure the survival of the human race. They can't survive on Alpha indefinitely.

1.1 The Siren Call by Andrew Smith

The people of Moonbase Alpha are recovering from the shock of their base and their Moon having been blasted through a wormhole in space. But now they are far from home with little hope of a return to Earth.

Ahead of them is the planet Meta, whose signal somehow caused this catastrophe. Could this be their new home or does yet more danger lie ahead?

1.2 Death's Other Dominion by Roland Moore (adapted from the original teleplay by Anthony Terpiloff and Elizabeth Barrows)

A voice calls to the Alphans from a mysterious, snowbound planet. Can it be possible that humans from Earth have really colonised this remote world?

When Commander Koenig and his team investigate, they discover the planet Nival holds many terrible secrets.

1.3 Goldilocks by Andrew Smith

Not too hot, not too cold. The perfect planet on which life can thrive. But not all forms of life that thrive in the Goldilocks zone are peaceful.

Investigating this lush paradise, the Alphans must battle an ancient terror for survival.

 

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

Reviews

Big Finish, who produce this show along with other nerd-friendly audio dramas, really know what they’re doing. The special effects and dramatic music are great, the cast are correctly OTT. As camp and daft as it should be. Hours of joy!

The Observer

Space: 1999 – Volume 1 gives us a deeper look at the Alphans and their plight, questioning what it is that makes us human, and the lengths people will go not just to survive, but to build a life worth living. The regular cast are gelling together well, building up a rapport and camaraderie which sometimes seemed lacking with the television ensemble. Space: 1999 is in safe hands with Big Finish, and long may it continue.

Set the Tape

Nival is just as potentially lethal to the Alphans as its spiritual predecessor, Ultima Thule – but this time the threat is expressed much better. 8/10

Sci-Fi Bulletin

Mark Bonnar is superb as Commander Koenig, giving a performance that grounds the whole series in emotional realism. The writing draws on genre tropes to create an old-fashioned space exploration series, but the human element and rich characterisation are its real strength.
