The Catacombs Mission of the Darians
SFX footage

SFX footage from the World Backgrounds library. The library contains many alternative takes and longer shots (sometimes including clapperboards). A few examples have appeared on the Network DVDs bonus disc, but many have never been seen. Episode shots are outlined in red, all other shots from the library.

Scene 9, the Eagle is drawn towards the Daria. Clapperboard seen in opening frame, slate 7 take 2, filmed 6 February 1975. 5 inch Eagle appears at top right of frame after 5 seconds, moves left for 8 seconds, then recedes until it overlaps (superimposed) with the Daria tower and finally stops for the last second; total shot about 34 seconds.
