The Mark Of Archanon

Space: 1999Alan Carter and a Moonbase Alpha geologist are mining much-needed minerals from beneath the moon’s own surface, and his expedition makes an astonishing find – two humanoid figures, perfectly preserved in some sort of suspended animation chamber. Alan touches the device and receives a nearly fatal shock. Dr. Russell and Tony Verdeschi arrive to take charge, but before any progress can be made in reviving the two mystery men, a cave-in occurs, forcing Tony and Alan to break into the chamber and rescue the two men before they’re crushed. As they recover quickly, Maya recognizes the rescued father and son as natives of Archanon, a planet whose residents are renowned for spreading peace across the galaxy. But the crew finds out too late that Pasc, the elder alien, has a disease unique to the Archanons, a disorder which results in violent impulses and actions. Worse yet, there’s every indication that Pasc has passed the disease on to his son.
