While Commander Koenig (Martin Landau) and Tony Verdeschi (Tony Anholt) are on a mission to examine an abandoned alien spaceship, earth's runaway moon - and Moonbase Alpha with it, naturally - go through a space warp that spits it out in five lightyears distance. Koenig and Tony search the area for the space warp but are unable to trace it on their own, so they make it onto the abandoned spaceship in hope for some clues.

Meanwhile, on Alpha, resident shapeshifter Maya (Catherine Schell) has fallen terribly ill, to the extent that she turns into a monster and roughs up some of the crew, including the base's doctor-in-chief Helena Russell (Barbara Bain). As the monster, she tries to snatch an Eagle to fly back to her home planet, but when the Eagle is lowered into the hangar to prevent just that and she still starts the spaceship in the hangar, that leads to a massive explosion, and she, in her monster state, can only just be saved. She then turns into another monster and exits Alpha to take a stroll on the moon surface. Doc Russell (Barbara Bain) and Carter (Nick Tate) go after her, in full moonwalking gear, for her to attack them, which causes Carter's oxygen tank to crack and he nearly suffocates if it wasn't for Doc Russell. Maya the monster in the meantime finally gets worn down and can be dragged back to the base before running out of oxygen herself, and on the base she quickly goes back to normal.

Meanwhile, on the spaceship, Koenig and Tony find all the clues that eventually lead them to the space warp, and they're reunited with their friends before too long.


Not a great but a fun episode, for one of course for the hokey monsters Maya turns into - they don't convince for a minute but are fun to look at at least, and especially the first monster's fighting skills that with many patented wrestling moves provide for some laughters. And then there are the miniature effects that are nothing short of great - the scene with the Eagle attempting to start in the hangar is impressive not only by 70s TV standards, it still looks totally convincing today. Of course, on the downside, the script's a bit on the silly side, and neither of the two narrative threads are structured all that well while both leave too much to coincidence. And yet, the episode is entertaining enough, in its own, slightly silly way.
