The first half of this movie is a "decent" enough Star Trek TOS episode. But the second half is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. The worst part is, this was only a two-season TV show, so it wasn't like they were desperately scraping plots together 10-seasons-deep when they were out of ideas.

1) In the context of the movie, they give us zero reasons to not just kill Maya. Nobody knows who she is, she was dumped straight in the med bay after being evacuated from the planet in the first half. There appears to be absolutely no chain of command, nobody is in charge, just the weepy doctor woman insisting they don't kill her. But sure, let her endanger everyone on the base because 'reasons'. Yeah just let her blow up all your ships, those aren't irreplaceable or anything. The doctor lady might have her feelings hurt, and those are more important.

2) The slow-speed slow-motion chase and fight on the surface of the moon had me laughing out loud. Apparently on the moon, everything moves in slow motion. The best part is when the creature just bangs a rock against the little golf cart and somehow that causes them to wildly lose control.

3A) Martin Landau is separated by 5 lightyears. First, they're talking about like they're just going to fly 5 lightyears back to the moon (Servo laughs at this a few times). They aren't even concerned except "we'll run out of fuel". FIVE LIGHTYEARS.

3B) Oh never mind, there just happens to be an alien ship floating right next to them that nobody saw before (also wouldn't the moon have pulled it into its gravity, since the ship was floating where the moon was when it went through the warp?) that has recordings from the worst alien costume ever put to film who speaks English, and he just happens to have a piece of plumbing that magically contains the coordinates of where the moon went (wat).

The best scene was when Maya wakes up as Brian Blessed and begins trashing the room.

Very good episode, especially coming from season ZERO. I noticed Brian Blessed is in this, he was the father to Edmund in the first season of THE BLACK ADDER, also plays Lord Locksley...... Robin hoods father, in ROBIN HOOD PRINCE OF THIEVES.... With Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman.

I watched the first 15 minutes and thought, "I can't get through this". Then my 12-week-old kitten hopped up on my chest and fell asleep and I couldn't reach my mouse. By the time she woke up there was only 15 minutes left. I shouldn't have finished it. Not worth it.

With every close up of Mentor, I think of those Wilton how-to catalogs/guides from the 1970s.

I fondly remember Space 1999 in its first run and all its tacky, stiffly-acted glory. I still like the visuals of Maya's shape-shifts, though I realize now they just did it that way to save money. [shrug]

Some respectable riffing in this one. :)

I would not have guessed that this show was produced by the same people who did all the Supermarionation shows.

This "movie" had so much tension - when would BRIAN BLESSED start yelling?

That looks like the buggy they rode in Girl In Gold Boots

Oddly, these are episodes 1 and 15 of the show's second (and final) series/season.

Y'know, these older episodes are pretty boring. But the Host segments keep me watching.

Good to know that the traditions of sci fi brawls is being upheld. Nothing like watching people being thrown across the room.

Wow, this show really did run out of special effects budget when they got to the onscreen alien in the second half. Is that mask made of cardstock?

This has kind of whetted my interest in Space:1999. I like the idea of a British Star Trek. Do they really just drift around on the moon for two seasons, dependent on falling into "space warps" to hop between inhabitable planets and storylines?

I remember Space: 1999 when I was a kid, it ran in syndication locally. Now I'm reminded why I lost interest so quickly! Bad tv show.

The first season of Space: 1999 was actually pretty good, the second was in need of help; but, overall, I liked it a lot.

Was anyone else just slightly disappointed that Cosmic Princess has nothing whatsoever to do with Prince of Space?

Growing up in Western NYS in the 70s our local CBS affiliate would show syndicated Sci Fi shows from 7:00 to 8:00 on Saturday. From Star Trek, to UFO, to Starlost to Space 1999. So I really dug Space Princess. I have not seen all year 0 episodes, but from the ones I have seen, it seems the crew has riffed the most on Space Princess.
