Doomsday - there is no canon to say that Victor died, so this film holds credibility.

Eric you did an excellent job. The awakening sequence through Victors eyes is very effective. Well done

CalgaryAlphan, the story behind the story (lost vhs tape etc) that delayed this release for a decade was interesting in itself - you should share it with the rest of the forum in this thread!

I'm sorry, but the fact he wasn't in season 2 means he was dead.
He wasn't on a sabbatical.
Or working his shift in the kitchens.
Gone. Kaput. He was a dead Victor!

I didn't like it on the programme either.
I thought Maya was a terrible addition.
But, hey, that's showbiz.

It was great to see the "new" footage with the great Barry Morse. It brought a tear to my eye. But the editing was pretty awkward.

Well, I like this, but I have one complaint: just before the Command Center staff is excitedly watching the Alpha Status Report given by Victor, we hear excited babbling that sounds to my ears like children. Was it my poor quality speakers distorting adult 'crowd noise,' or was there indeed a 'children noise' being used? The rest of the audio sounded OK to me, in case you're wondering.

Cheers to the late Barry Morse for his gift to fans of Space: 1999 and moreso to fans of Victor Bergman. What a nice man to have done this small gesture of thanks to those of us who've appreciated his performance all these years. (Thanks, too, of course, to the makers of this short fan film for pulling it all together.)

'Chopping up old stuff and recycling it as something new is not a creative process. It is recycling someones talent and reclaiming it as your own and shameful.'

Trying telling that to Quentin Tarantino, he does it all the time in one form or another..

I thought this was a very fitting dedication to Barry Morse, nicely edited with well chosen clips (Even editing clips of someone else's visuals and work to create a certain atmosphere and effect requires some degree of skill and imagination - We use to call them music videos in my line of work. I thought this was nicely put together, all things considered. Barry Morse hasn't lost an ounce of his talent either.

Thanks for all the positive comments (and I respect the negative ones as well). The Return of Victor Bergman was just a little spur-of-the-moment opportunity that arose, and we made the most of it that we could, given the time limitations.

Barry's generosity and love for the fans of Space: 1999 is what shines through for me, and I'm glad to see that resonating with many of you.
