Seed Of Destruction

Space: 1999A few asteroids of unknown composition appear near the moon, and even Moonbase Alpha’s scanners can’t determine what they’re made of or where they came from. Commander Koenig and Alan Carter pay a visit to one of the asteroids, but their Eagle develops a fault, leaving Koenig to explore a nearby cave on his own while Carter stays behind to conduct repairs. Koenig is exploring the mirrored halls of an artificial structure beneath the asteroid surface when he is attacked by a creature who is his own mirror image. Koenig’s doppelganger returns to the Eagle, which lifts off and returns to Alpha, where he orders the destruction of the asteroid. But when Maya questions how the commander came to this conclusion without extensive study, he orders her confined to quarters. Verdeschi and Dr. Russell begin to suspect that something has taken over the commander’s mind or replaced him, but by the time they can convince other key members of the crew to act, it’s too late.
