SPACE: 1999 - 'Space Brain' / Season 1 Episode 21 - 1976

Here we go with another week at The Dungeon. This time we'll take a look at this episode from that great TV series back in the day. The story goes... Alien gyphs appear on all of Alpha's screens, so, Commander Koenig sends an Eagle to investigate. The Eagle is lost and the pilot's mind is taken over by a huge alien Space Brain, using him as a channel to make the Alphans do its bidding.

When an Eagle goes out to investigate a disturbance near their Moon Base, it encounters a giant Space Brain! Then, the Eagle is covered by some weird foam and crashes back on the Moon Base.

Professor Bergman scans a strange fragment found at the crash site for clues as to what it is.

Here's the pilot whose mind has been taken over by the Brain, he ends up causing lots of problems until he's stunned while trying to reprogram the main computer!

I wonder if the message is clear enough here?!

Here are Koenig and Bergman inspecting the alien foam sample they have, shades of CALTIKI and SPACE MASTER X-7...

Commander Koenig tries to use an Eagle to stop the foam invasion, but, ends up crashing his ship into the Moon dust!

The Space Brain closes in on Moon Base Alpha as the Alphans prepare for the foam invasion.

As the Brain gets close, all Hell breaks loose and the rooms are filled with the foam that looks a lot like laundry detergent!

Okay, wow, who has the number for the Maytag Service Man?!!

It looks like the Alphans are losing their battle with the bubbles, until...

The Space Brain finally passes by the Moon, and...

The foam starts disappearing and everyone gives a big sigh of relief, phew! There you go, now, check in again Wednesday for more, from... The Dungeon!!
