Space 1999: Omega And Alpha (2010)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
11.12.10

Space 1999: Omega And Alpha (2010) These are two paperbacks that tell the epic final story of the plight of Moonbase Alpha. The base is attacked by a weird alien that looks human at first but then digests people like an amoeba. The only way to kill it is to open the entire base to space so they then have to resupply all the oxygen. This coincides with the return of Victor Bergman who is the one who saves them by doing this. He had spent the past few years living with a humanoid alien species but his wife was killed and he longed to return home. He's also the pawn of a godlike being that gives him a mission, which is to close a spatial rift to an earlier universe. If it opens it will destroy our universe and everything in it. But there's another such powerful creature and they say the same thing will happen if they do nothing. So who do they trust?

Helena Russell is pregnant with Commander John Koenig's child. He has mixed feelings about this, which has to do with his own parents and how they adversely affected him growing up. He feels he has way too much responsibility as it is. The relationship between Maya and Tony Verdeschi is in the background and not much time spend on those characters since the previous novel, BORN FOR ADVERSITY, did just that. Then, things get weird. There are versions of the Moonbase crew from an alternate universe, an alternate earth and then John and Helena's grown son, of the Future Alphans, shows up with a fleet of hyped up Eagles and they are on opposing sides!

Helena side with her adult son while John knows he's working for the enemy. There's also the return of Doug, or at least an alternate version of him.

For the most part this book succeeds in tying everything together from the show's two television seasons and the subsequent novels, though this is one of those books if you miss a page you'll be scratching your head. It just seemed like too much information was being conveyed to wrap up this series, which I suspect was intended for a few more original novels leading up to this point.
