1999 Cast

Maya is develops a mysterious illness and Doctor Russell is unable to find a cure. Meanwhile, Commander Koenig and Verdeschi are investigating a derelict spaceship, when the Moon suddenly passes through a space warp, stranding them five light years from Alpha. Maya becomes delirious and begins to relive the last days of her home planet Psychon; she transforms into a space creature, escapes from the Medical Centre and steals an Eagle. However, she is unable to control the craft while in her alien form, and the Eagle crashes. Maya is badly injured and Doctor Russell attempts to operate on her, but the Metamorph breaks free and, turning into another deadly monster, goes on a rampage through Alpha. Back at the derelict, Koenig and Carter have docked with the ship, and they learn that it too experienced the space warp; their only hope now lies in locating the ‘space window’ - the only way they can ever return to Alpha…
