I also liked the two seat VIPERS. The Colonial Turbines(flying motorcycle) made me wonder if George Lucas used this idea for his SPEEDERBIKEs in RETURN OF THE JEDI 1983.
Wouldn't THAT be ironic...Lucas stealing from Larson?

Not stealing, maybe Lucas was inspired by Larson.

Another example:

If you look at the artwork for Glen Larson 1978 BATTLESTAR GALACTICA there was a spaceship that what he would use for his 1979 BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25TH CENTURY STARFIGHTER(THUNDERFIGHTER)(front & back seat)...look at the SNOWSPEEDER(front & back seat) from EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 1980.

1979
1980


George Lucas was inspired by other Sci-Fi too...FLASH GORDON.
He admitted he saw STAR BLAZERS(SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO) when writing STAR WARS.
STAR BLAZERS robot I.Q.9 looks like it inspired R2-D2.

I just LOVE this so-called "inspiration"...Can we have some originality people? Again, that's what I loved about SPACE:1999. There was & is nothing else like it...

David, that is one thing that I agree with you 100% is the lack of originality...absolutely, agree with you ...ever since I saw "Breakaway" in 1975 at eleven years old I have been in love with SPACE:1999.
David, you said it perfectly There was and is nothing else like it.

For real! Nothing has EVER come close & until (or unless) there's a re-make, there never will be!

David, I absolutely think you are correct. I have experienced a lot of Science-Fiction since I was a boy in the 1970s, after searching all the new things that have come and gone....but nothing even comes close to SPACE:1999...it is like you can go home again everytime you watch the best Science-Fiction ever created SPACE:1999. If there is a reboot/remake of SPACE:1999, let's hope they get it right.

Considering Hollywood's history with re-makes, I have my doubts about the quality of any re-make of SPACE:1999. For instance: "King Kong" (both versions), "Thunderbirds", "Mod Squad", "Avengers", "Get Smart", "Bewitched", "Dukes Of Hazzard", "Solaris", "Texas Chain Saw Massacre", "The Omen", "Amityville Horror", "Psycho", "Godzilla", "Planet Of the Apes"...Of course, there HAVE been some good ones, too: "Dawn Of the Dead", "Manchurian Candidate", "Hills Have Eyes","Star Trek" (yes, I liked it)...So, it IS possible...just not too likely.

If it ever happens...we will always have the original 48 episodes of SPACE:1999.

48 plus "Message Fropm Moonbase Alpha" & the four "movies" edited from TV episodes & the nine original novels. Then, of course, there's the "prequel" to SPACE:1999..."UFO".
