Even if members of the cast might be...

I've never seen Space 1999, but did anyone actually consider what a catastrophe it would to Planet Earth if we lost our moon?

And more relevant to this thread...

Of course it may not be THE Moon, which 'disappears'. It could be one of the other's 'orbiting' our planet. (Followers of Qi will know what I'm talking about)

Would seriously recommend you watch the series if you can - undoubtedly the Andersons' most spectacular and thoughtful show (first season anyway !). The effect of the Moon's loss was referred to in the show, but an equally dramatic programme might have been made about the consequences faced by those left on Earth.

You get a brief shot of the Moonbase Alpha crew watching news broadcasts from Earth talking of planet-wide catastrophic weather, earthquakes, etc., and not being able to do anything about it.

Somebody ought to do a companion series, Earth: 1999...
