The runaway moon of the earth - & moonbase Alpha with it - is sucked into a black sun (which is pretty much the same as a black hole), that is powerful enough to absorb even radio signaly & light itself. So the moonbase's scientist Victor (Barry Morse) makes up the stupid plan of using the gravitational field of the moonbase against the gravitation of the black sun ... a plan so stupid not even he himself thinks it's going to work.

Commander Koenig (Martin Landau) himself though keeps a cool head & mans a szurvival ship with 6 crewmembers most suitable to ensure survival of the human kind (?), among them the usual suspects (though not himself): Alpha's physician Helen Russell (Barbara Bain), data analyst Sandra (Sienia Merton) & crack pilot Alan (Nick Tate). The others head for the black sun in contemplation of their deaths & bid farewell to each other ... but once in the black sun, Koenig & Victor seem to meet something that could be the personified universe (or whatever else), they have a little chat, then whatever-it-is decides to spit them out on the other end of the universe ... & wouldn't you know it, the survival ship - inexplicably - finds itself on the other side of the universe, too.

Was it God ?

 

I have to admit, I'm a bit of a sucker for Space 1999, with its mostly far-fetched plots & its great 1970's outfits, its great miniatures paired with cheapish effects, & the pseudo-philosophical message of this episode - paired with some incredibly cheesy sets - provides some fun too ... but overall the episode is talky to the point of being annoying, & endlessly shows people preparing themselves for death but in fact doing pretty little (e.g. a guy plays a few accords on his guitar, a girl comes in & asks "may I join ?", end of sequence), & the solution (divine intervention) leaves a lot to be desired indeed ( from a narrative standpoint, you might still laugh your head off !!!).
