I recall some older kids, a pair of brothers, having that big ass toy ship.  Minus all the accessories, doors, etc.

Didn't know what the hell it was at the time.

They also had a big Enterprise from the first couple Star Trek movies, but it was missing the engine nacelles.  I still thought it was pretty cool.

oh Yeah!!!!

Close, but that's from UFO, Space:1999's sort-of predecessor.

Who cares - any excuse to look at Gabrielle Drake will do for me :-)

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

And now everyone can try to forget that for all practical purposes, Space 1999 is the sequel to X-com (which was heavily based on the UFO series).

You're welcome.
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I don't think the term 'X-Com' was ever used in relation to the TV show, though the game has a lot of similarities. Also, while Space:1999 was originally supposed to be a followup to UFO, the actual second season of UFO was cancelled. Gerry Anderson didn't want to waste all the work done so came up with an unrelated series that could use the props and sets that had been started for UFO season 2. There was no Alien invasion before the events that sent the Moon and Moonrise Alpha into deep space.
