For a few seconds time stands still for all the crewmembers on moonbase Alpha on eatch's runaway moon, for All except Zerof (Ian McShane), who is - as would be expected in space - promptly possessed by some alien creature, which does neither show on the outside though nor does he know it ...

But Zerof soon starts to absrb energy & heat, which after a while leads to a point that everyone he touches is quickly frozen stiff.

It takes the moonbase's commander Koenig (MArtin Landau), its chief physician Helena Russell (Barbara Bain) & its chief scientist Victor Bergstrom (Barry Morse) an awful long time though to figure out what's really going on, & that Zerof is behind it all, then they come to only one sensible solution ... they have to turn off all the power ... which is a tad problematic since the whole moonbease's life-support systems run on electricity.

... & while the air already runs awfully low (the air supply & ventilation has to be powered too, of course), Koenig & company finally track down Zoref, very low on power, only a few feet away from one of the moonbase's nuclear reactors ... & have the good idea to shoot him with a laser, which quite naturally pumps Zoref up with power & makes him strong enough to walk into the reactor's core ... & a decent part of the moonbase goes up in explosions ...

For some reason though, the lead characters of the series have all escaped the explosion, & Koenig states that the damage is only very limited. Ah yes, & a blue light leaves the moonbase, presumably the alien that has possessed Zoref, & now continues its journey, refueled.


One of the livelier episodes of Space 1999, as it features a straightforward let's-hunt-down-an-alien-plot, albeit with a reather stupid, nonsensical ending (where the alien causes amssive damage tghat seemingly doesn't affect the moonbase at all).

Absent here are the weird sci-fi-philosophy & the psychedelic sets that would make many epsiodes such (retro-)fun to watch, but the plot is still silly enough to entertain.
