TV Show Intros: Space 1999

I so totally believed that we would have moon bases by 1999 when I was a kid in the early 1970's. I mean, we were putting men on the moon, and one day, I'd go.

Anyhow, I loved this show, but I can't remember anything about it now except that I loved it, and it frightened me a little.

From Wikipedia:

Space: 1999 (ITC Entertainment and RAI, 1975-77) is a British science-fiction television series. In the series, nuclear waste from Earth is stored on the moon. The waste explodes in a catastrophic accident on 13 September 1999, which knocks the moon out of its orbit and sends it and the 311 inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha hurtling uncontrollably into outer space. The series was the last produced by the partnership of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, famous for the TV series Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Fireball XL5, and UFO.
