_Space: 1999_ (1975) season 2 episodes The Metamorph and Space Ward were edited together to create this movie about the adrift in space crew of Moonbase Alpha that meets shape-shifting alien Maya and her father who wants their brains.
After an atomic explosion blasts the Moon out of Earth orbit, Moonbase Alpha drifts in space, with three hundred people on board. When a rescue team from Earth arrives in a faster-than-light space ship, everyone is overjoyed that they can now return to Earth. But Moonbase Commander John Koenig (Martin Landau), having undergone an experimental brain soothing process after receiving a concussion in a crash on the Lunar surface, sees not friends from Earth, but gruesome monsters which have telepathically caused all others on Alpha to see an illusion of an Earth party. The aliens are desperate for radiation and plan to manipulate the Alphans into detonating nuclear waste on the Lunar surface, reducing the Moon and everyone on it to dust. Koenig must expose this conspiracy to save his people.Written by

"Far out into the galaxy of the universe is the Moon, Earth's great natural satellite, revolving round man's planet in an orbit as fixed and rigid as that of the Sun. It has now been transformed into a stepping stone, an advanced, complex, instrument, self supporting in all aspects, enabling man to continue the eternal search for other forms of life in outer space. The year is 2100." See more »
I was watching this series in 1979 I think and in that time this was by far the best you could get, Flash Gordon is nothing compere to this. I was 13 years old then and I remember that it could be a bit scary. I know I have seen it again for some years ago but I don't know where I found it and of course I didn't save it. I think it's pretty advanced for that time. I strongly recommend this if you can get it.
