The special effect for the series were made with very poor materials. For the ship controls were used, among other things, an iron and some desk pencil sharpeners. The robot's hands were made using an ice cream spoon and the effect of the planet explosions were made by blowing some rice and coffee with compressed air. Despite the effectiveness of the special effects for the extremely low budget, Bavaria TV canceled the show after seven episodes due to high costs. See more »
You can see two crewmembers in the fifth episode "Kampf um die Sonne" (Translation: "Fight for the Sun"). You can see them in the scene when the "Lanzet"-shuttle of the "Chroma"-people crashes.

Orion is undoubtedly the best sci-fi TV series ever made. I recently discovered that some scenes from the first episode are clearly inspired by the Russian SF film Ikarie XB. The best programs from the early days of television were probably made by people with experience in the film industry. The famous BBC quality for drama also arose because people from the film industry started working for the BBC.
