Default Moon City Costumes by Rudi Gernreich

How is it that this credit was never changed to state "Moonbase Alpha"? I could understand the error occurring in the opening sequence of Breakaway, but beyond that...? I'm always surprised that this was never changed.

I always thought seeing that phrase "moon city" was kinda neat...

Sounds very 1950-ish to me.

So the production was obliged to credit him that way even after the name change.

Thanks JD. I hadn't thought about the legal/contractual aspect of it. That makes sense.
