Space: 1999

Show generally

Other mistake: Every time someone calls, either on the comlinks, or the wall panels, there always appears to be a blank wall immediately behind the person on screen, even when the camera cuts to the person calling.

Force of Life - S1-E2

Other mistake: As Zoref pulls the reactor door open, the wig wrinkles up on the back of his neck. Also, when the door is half way open, he's still holding it, then he's suddenly several feet away from it when it's still swinging open.

Force of Life - S1-E2

Other mistake: As they track Zoref, Victor calls for a view of Corridor 16, then after viewing it, calls for Corridor 49. In both views, it is the same Corridor, as evidenced by the number 16 on the lighted wall panel on the corner facing the camera.

Movie Nut

The Last Sunset - S1-E17

Other mistake: After the alien probe emits atmosphere on the surface, there's suddenly full gravity, as evidenced by the first two people walking normally. There was no mention of full gravity on the Moon's surface, as all walking before was in microgravity.

Movie Nut

Missing Link - S1-E20

Other mistake: As the camera pans around to look in the cockpit, the wound on Koenig's head is easily seen as a bad blending job. The edges of the prosthetic are visible.

Movie Nut

Missing Link - S1-E20

Other mistake: In the beginning, the Eagle was moving away from the alien planet, and as such, should have crash landed facing away from the planet. However, it was facing the direction it came from. If it traveled a fairly straight line, (and the trajectory suggests it did) then it should have crashed with the rear end facing the planet.

Question: Assuming that Moonbase Alpha is on the side facing the Earth (which is seen on the horizon over the base in the pilot episode "Breakaway"), making travel to it and back easier, and the nuclear waste on the far side, away from Earth, wouldn't the explosion propel the moon towards the Earth, thereby dooming Alpha to certain destruction?

Movie Nut

Answer: Not necessarily - The gravitational fields of Earth and the Sun could have deflected the moon away from the solar system.
