Another good guess! Sadly no.

Another clue, think about where Space:1999 was filmed. Not the North American side of the pond.

Although not necessarily set on a starship, the series had an intrepid crew of explorers much like STAR TREK, and featured many of the philosophical, thought-provoking types of stories that had made STAR TREK so special. Add to that the similarity between SPACE: 1999 and STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE in the aspect of costumes, sets and props, and you have an idea, however vague, of what PHASE II would have been. Simply put Kirk and crew in the place of the SPACE: 1999 cast, and change the setting from Moonbase Alpha to the Enterprise, and ta-da! You have, in essence, PHASE II.
It was very Trek like but it made no sense half the time.
When you get passed this it is actually very intresting but more like fantasy.

Yes, I never got to see much Space 1999. My folks weren't sci-fi freaks like me so I had to be satisfied with saturday morning presentations of Star Trek TAS, Dr. Who and if I was lucky a Godzilla movie on "Creature Features". After school it was waiting for Mom's soaps to end so I could catch Speed Racer and Starblazers if I was lucky. Then Star Wars came out and my folks realized they had a sci-fi geek on their hands and had no choice. At least I wasn't on drugs. lol

With the advent of the video boom I got to see alot of the shows I missed. UFO... who can't love those girls with the purple hair? Gerry Anderson is a model making genius.

I was more into Doctor Who, The Six Million Dollar Man, the original Battlestar Galactica, and Buck Rogers during the '70s. But Space: 1999 was also a favorite of mine and I still have a model of one of the Eagle spacetransporters on my desk today.

Yeah, Space: 1999 did seem like it was acid-trippin' a lot in hindsight. The concept seemed cool when I was a kid, but I later realized how outlandish it was--the Moon being blasted out of Earth orbit from its dark side (without blowing apart or hitting Earth) and falling through a conveniently placed nearby wormhole into the deepest regions of space.

But as a kid, it was more about the cool visuals to me, which I think still hold up pretty well today. Visually, I think it was more akin to 2001: A Space Odyssey in the sense that the ships and other models were pretty realistic-looking...
