There was a huge amount of original props and models provided by the All Sections Alpha modellers group, and the some of the friendliest attendees you could meet.
The guests, of course were a high point. Some big names in Space 1999 circles - Nick Tate and Catherine Schell being the headliners.
Here's a few more photos' I took of the guests who attended and worked on the original series.
Nick Tate who played Eagle pilot Alan Carter. A popular witty and friendly guest.
The lovely Catherine Schell who played the Servant of the Guardian in the first season episode, Guardian of Piri, and the metamorph from the planet Psychon, Maya during the second season.
Prentis Hancock who played Main Mission Controller Paul Morrow in first season. Another popular guest who really should have been in second season.
Brian Johnson, the man behind the special effects and the design of the Eagle Transporter.
Anton Phillips who played Dr. Bob Mathias in the first series. He was replaced with a different character in second season by Jeffery Kissoon who played Dr Ben Vincent in seven episodes.
Suzanne Roquette played Main Mission Operative Tanya Alexander who appeared in first season only.
Sarah Bullen seen here holding the mic, next to Pam Rose in the baseball cap, did appear as a Main Mission background player in both seasons as Operative Kate.
Pam Rose, another popular guest, appeared in second season as another background player.
And now to some names and faces, some of you might not have seen .
Finally, Camera focus puller Robin McDonald, who worked on not only Space 1999, but so many classic films and TV series.
His job as a focus puller, or 1st Assistant Camera was maintaining image sharpness on whatever action or subject was being filmed.
Oops, sorry Robin!
Seriously, I really do hope the folks behind the Alpha: 2014 consider doing another convention at some point in the not too distant future.
