Hi all,

Space 1999 remains one of my all time favourite series , at least Season 1. Theres a new website up where another die-hard fan has remastered the original series and has some interesting thoughts on continuity etc . There are next millenium "adverts " for each episode too. Really worth checking out. A labour of love for this guy and his crew . Apologies if anyone has posted this before .

That site was great. Unfortunately, the studio made them take down their videos (copyright infringement and stuff). Some of the remade trailers are on YouTube. Search Space:2009 and they'll pull up. Good stuff. A lot of the "glitches" which drove the die-hard fanbase crazy were corrected. Also, in the remade epis, the pace was sped up a bit for today's ADHD audiences.

I'd rather have an outright remake than stomach the tampering that was done to the original episodes on that website.

why do all series end up having to throw a shapeshifter into the cast?

I'm not always right but I am never wrong.
 

The above posts are my opinions.

I think a remake could work. However, it ought to be a total rewrite. The main thing I'd change myself would be to get rid of the whole idea of the moon bogging off on some pan-galactic, faster than light, tourist trip. Would be a lot more believable if it were just a large space ship of some sort.

Then it would be a remake of Lost in Space, not Space:1999.

Long time response to MrDarkwood and cmdrKoenig: A good premise would have been off a book "Ship of Fools" by Richard Paul Russo. Premise, a huge "generation" ship with thousands of humans has spent hundreds of years in space. So long, no one remembers exactly where they came from or where they are headed and why. The book itself has a very intriguing plot storyline, but I could see an impressive series built off that as well.

That sounds similar to the premise of The Starlost.

Wow, would have been worth watching for the 70s cheese alone. "Fools was more a little weird. I would not want to give away the book story (did have a story). I picked it up on chance waiting for a flight for work.
