The Lambda Factor

Space: 1999A member of the medical staff is killed in a mysterious phenomenon that also lays waste to the storage section of Moonbase Alpha’s sick bay. Commander Koenig irritably orders Verdeschi to begin an investigation, and continues to snap at his crew when an unusual object is spotted ahead of the moon’s position in space. And Koenig isn’t the only one exhibiting unusual behavior – other crew members are experiencing it, and even equipment – ranging from most of the Eagles, and a power generator in a room that Alan mysteriously becomes trapped in. Now Verdeschi feels he’s investigating a murder and systematic sabotage. But when various crew members begin exhibiting apparent signs of telekinesis, the scope of Tony’s investigation widens considerably. And while all of this is taking place, the unknown orb of energy draws closer until it engulfs the moon itself.
