Space 1999 Trivia


As of 1975, this series was the most expensive ever produced by British television.

The idea for the show was originally intended to be a plot change for the series "UFO (1970)". Aliens were going to destroy SHADO's base on the Moon by knocking the Moon out of orbit.

Barbara Bain was married to fellow Space 1999 cast member Martin Landau (till 1993). They also worked together on "Mission Impossible (1966)". Barbara Bain was the first actress to win three Emmys in a row (1967, 1968 and 1969) for her role on "Mission Impossible.

Martin Landau was Gene Roddenberry's first choice to portray "Mr. Spock" on the series, "Star Trek (1966)". After Martin Landau left Space 1999, "Mission Impossible (1966)", Leonard Nimoy replaced him directly from his role as "Mr. Spock"!

The plan to continue the show for a third season was canceled at the last moment due to lack of sufficient audience in the United States.

Out of 2000 actors and actresses who auditioned for Lee Strasberg's very exclusive theater school in 1955, only two were accepted ... Martin Landau and Steve McQueen!
