On their way through outer space on earth's runaway moon, the crew of Moonbase Alpha discovers 2 planets (called Beta & Delta) circling a sun on exactly opposite sides, so they are never able to see each other. But with the moon passing, soon a battleship from Delta lands on the moon, renders all the Moonbase's defensive systems (including their spaceships) useless, & bombs Beta. However, Beta soon fires back, & more or less destroys the battleship. only an escape pod can make it to Moonbase Alpha.

Aboard the pod is Dione (Caroline Mortimer), who fills commander Koenig (Martin Landau) & the rest of the Alphans in on the story: Beta & Delta have been at war for ages, but since neither of the planets can fire at the other directly ('cause the sun is in the way), fighting was pretty difficult ... until the moon came passing by, & since the Deltans seem to have seen it first, they immediately landed a battleship on it to use the moon as strategic advantage - the downside of it is that when the Betans fire back, they might hit Alpha too ... oh well.

With the greatest of efforts, Koenig manages to negotiate a ceasefire between the Betans & the Deltans because he figures the Deltans are defeated anyways, & since the Alphans want to stay neutral, there is no use for any more Betan bombs anymore (my they strainded the Greek alphabet in this one).

Talos (Kevin Stoney) of Beta agrees, & dione returns to her ship & pretends to be grateful ... until everyone has to find out that the Deltan ship still has firepower, & they start bombarding Beta again ... & as retribution, Beta sends missiles against Alpha, claiming they are in cahoots with Delta.

Now Koenig decides for a bluff - he pretends to abandon Alpha & his Alphans & to seek sanctuary on the Deltan ship ... & only too late does Dione realize that it's not Koenig who drives towards her ship on a moonbuggy but enough explosives to blow her to kingdom come ... & boom.

With the Deltan battleship gone, Beta destroys his missiles aimed at Alpha & lets the moon pass undisturbed ...

 

As usual, the story is somewhat silly (but relatively coherent & believable - in a sci-fi-context - in comparison to other episodes), but it's got all that makes Space 1999 so charming: great miniature effects, including of course explosions & destruction, aliens in fancy outfits & of course alien spaceships with great pop-art interiors ... you just have to love the series for that.
