Space: 1999 - Return To The Beginning

Still no producer credits, dang it--though these records are recommended by Dr.Wernher Von Braun, president of the National Space Institute, so there's that.

I notice these two Space: 1999 book and record sets are by far the most wordy of any of the Power Records.

The Power Records stories were my first exposure to both Star Trek and Space 1999. I heard these records long before I ever saw either show on TV. We got four channels on TV when I was a kid in the late 70s, and none of them had Star Trek or Space 1999. I remember Saturday night at 7 being a choice between Lawrence Welk, Hee Haw, and Adam-12. Naturally I listened to a lot of Power Records.

Interestingly, the character of Controller Paul Morrow looks like Gray Morrow (the artist of the b/w Charlton Space:1999 magazine and ITC licensing art), not actor Prentiss Hancock who played Morrow on the show!

Even though this particular story wasn't as 'scientific' as the real Space: 1999 series (I know, I know, the irony of talking about S99's scientific accuracy is not lost on me!), back in the pre-VCR days I'd take anything S99-related that I could get, and this filled a void. In spite of its somewhat goofy story, the artwork was superb.

I'd love to see credits for the voice actors on these records. Some of them are very good at capturing the sound of the actual series actors. I have noticed that the actor doing Koenig also provides Spock's voice in some of the Star Trek adventures.

A few decades ago, I was watching a television documentary about volcanos ( focusing on the then recent Mt. ST. Helens eruption ), and the narrator was DEFINITELY the same actor who did Kirk's voice on the Trek records.

I notice in "Breakaway" the character of Ouma is depicted in the Power Records comic as white... in the series, of course, he is black.
