Eagle Passenger Module


Front bulkheads

The front bulkheads of the passenger module originally featured large colour view screens (Breakaway, Matter Of Life And Death, Black Sun, Ring Around The Moon, Earthbound, Another Time, Another Place, Guardian Of Piri). The view screen reappeared (on the port side only) in Dragon's Domain.

From Missing Link the large screen changed to small computer screens, two on each side. The following episode (Guardian Of Piri) is back to the viewscreen, but the next time we see the passenger module (The Last Sunset) the computer screens have back and stay until the end of the series.

On the inner side of the bulkhead is a standard moonbase door panel, with signs above. At the start of year 1 there were two sign labels, dropping to one later. In year 2 a new red label appears (with a shortened version of the same text as the year 1 label, minus the "codeing" misspelling). In year 2 a blue fire extinguisher is mounted above the label (so the text makes sense, unlike in year 1). The typeface is Eurostile Bold Extended.

Death's Other Dominion The Seance Spectre Devil's Planet

Beneath the screens were shelves, containing either boxes or spacesuit packs. Later this became a weapons rack (and in Devil's Planet and The Immunity Syndrome a large red label "Weapons Rack"). There are normally 5 stun guns on a long rail, with transparent plastic rings holding each side of the guns. Below, on brackets, is either a large blaster (The Last Sunset, The Full Circle, Death's Other Dominion, The Infernal Machine, End Of Eternity) or a laser rifle (War Games, Space Brain, Mission Of The Darians, Dragon's Domain, The Testament Of Arkadia, all Year 2). In most of Year 1, a blue fire extinguisher is mounted in the lower shelf on the starboard side. In Year 2, the blue fire extinguisher is moved above the door panel control. One of the fire extinguishers is removed by Koenig in Devil's Planet and used as a weapon against the guards.

Forward section

The forward portion of the passenger module contains cupboards and shelves, used for hanging spacesuits or boxes and cases. Theoretically the passenger module could be mounted facing in either direction.

At the front, by the door to the command module, are three shelves. Moving to the centre of the module are three tall open cupboards with hanging rails, which may hold spacesuits or boxes. The cupboards and shelves have red labels over them with numbers. On the port-side the numbers are (centre to front, top) 1, 2, 3, 1 (and the shelves below, 2 and 3). On the starboard, the numbers are (front to centre) 4 (with shelves 5 and 6 below), 4, 5, 6. Obviously there may be some confusion if things are stored in "4".
