It is the year 1999, and humans have established a permanent settlement on the Moon. Moonbase Alpha is located in the crater Tycho. It is a closed structure almost 2.5 miles in diameter, with some sections descending up to a half mile below the lunar surface. However, unknown to Alpha's residents, a nuclear waste dump on the far side of the Moon has become unstable and explodes with such force that it propels the Moon and its unwitting occupants out of Earth orbit and on a trip across the Galaxy. The humans, led by Commander John Keonig, must deal with all manner of alien beings, as they desperately try to survive and find a way back home. Among Alpha's other occupants are Dr. Helena Russell, Professor Victor Bergman, Eagle Pilot Alan Carter, Main Mission Controller Paul Morrow, Data Coordinator Sandra Benes, and Computer Chief David Kano. In the show's second season, we learn that Dr. Bergman, Paul Morrow, and David Kano have died in accidents, and that Anthony Verdeschi has been appointed as Security Chief. An alien woman named Maya also joins the Moonbase's crew as Science Officer. Maya has the ability to transform her molecular makeup for short periods of time.
