Phoenix Five

MORE UNWANTED flotsam washed up from Down Under, this time posing as an Antipodean STAR TREK. Show had two black-and-white predecessors: VEGA4 and THE INTERPRETARIS, with the latter, despite a non-existent budget, mustering a pantheon of Trek-esque trimmings, including a federation of planets, a space-ship on mission, Russian astronauts, females in traditional male roles, the brotherhood of man in the future and all that bollocks. Remembered, if at all, for having only one shot of the spaceship (repeated over and over), and about three sets in all, with occasional forays outside to the trusty gravel pit.
