The Beta Cloud

Space: 1999An expanding luminescent cloud appears in the moon’s vicinity, and a mysterious illness sweeps the crew of Moonbase Alpha. The affliction strikes most of the male crewmembers, but not all of them. Commander Koenig is among those rendered helpless, and Tony Verdeschi takes command. Eagle 6, which was on a routine reconaissance mission, returns to the moon without fuel and without a trace of life aboard. But when Verdeschi and a security team board the Eagle, they find a vicious creature that kills everyone it can get its hands on. A mysterious voice contacts Moonbase Alpha and demands that the crew turn off the base’s life support. While this ultimatum is delivered, the creature is rampaging through Alpha’s corridors. As Tony and a surviving security guard try to lead their unwanted visitor into a trap in the base’s vacuum chamber, Dr. Russell falls victim to the debilitating disease. The beast is cutting a deadly path toward Alpha’s life support center to do what the crew is unwilling to do. But can they stop it?
