Scpace. Zee final fronteer.

I used to watch this as a kid growing up in the old DDR (i.e. Eastern Germany). We didn't have much else but canned food (sauerkraut and wienerschnitzel) and Russian polka music but we had one thing: We got TV rays from the free West thru the wall and we could watch Die Phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion. It made all the difference. It was truly wunderbar!

Alright-alright, I discovered Raumpatrouille Orion via the German satellite TV channel Sat1 in the early 90s and I've got the complete German box set release that came out a few years back. Unfortunately, it's not English friendly (but this clip is [albeit wobbly]).


  1. I've got the box set that also has the movie edited from the tv show with english subtitles.They should of subtitled the episodes as well.
    I first knew about this show in about 1999, after i purchased the cd soundtrack. It was impossible to get the tv series here in australia, that was until i got the internet about 5 years ago and bought it off german ebay.

  2. Yes, they should have subbed the TV series as well!! You got the CD soundtrack! Very cool!!!
