As a child of the 1970s, few sci-fi TV series had more impact on my young brain than “Space: 1999.” the live-action British import from “Thunderbirds” creators Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. 

The pre-“Star Wars” action adventure starred Martin Landau, Barbara Bain, and Barry Morse as members of Moonbase Alpha, who braved the perils of deep space after nuclear explosions ejected the moon from Earth orbit and sent it drifting into the galaxy. It ran for just two seasons (1975-1977) but made lasting impressions with its tense storytelling and amazing visual effects.
