You're welcome. It's a bit dated and the model work is laughable but the stories are pretty good. BTW, Space: 1999 was originally intended as a sequel to this of sorts.
I wouldn't call the model-work on UFO laughable. Yeah, there's only so much you can do without motion-control, but the detail in the models is as high as anything you'd see later out of ILM.

They were using Dinky Toys, or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

I loved it in the 70s but now I just have to laugh at it. It reminds me of the Jupiter 2 models I used to make out of two paper plates, scotch tape, and toothpicks. Or the phasers made of duct tape and aluminium foil.
