Moonbase Exterior Structures

Main Mission Tower

In Guardian Of Piri, close up shots showed a tower with a cross-shape plan corresponding to the tower at the centre of the full Moonbase model. From Force Of Life, a new version of the Main Mission tower appears, larger and more detailed. The original smaller version continued to appear in many episodes, sometimes alongside the larger version.

In Guardian Of Piri the Main Mission Tower appears (the same shot appears in War Games). The building on the left originally appeared in Breakaway.

Force Of Life

Another version of the Main Mission tower first appears in Force Of Life. It has a base and more detailing (Revell Gemini and AMT Klingon Battlecruiser). The "iron cross" insignia are made from four Sasco year planner stickers.

The Force Of Life tower is a larger model.

The Testament Of Arkadia

The Moonbase lights fade in The Testament of Arkadia. Exactly the same view is the title shot of Dragon's Domain.

Pans over the Moonbase buildings. The initial shots are from The Exiles and are also seen in Space Warp and The A B Chrysalis. Note the Main Mission tower.

The later shots are after the The A B Chrysalis shockwave, hence the dust. While in other shots the base seems to be on a flat surface, these views show the buildings spread over a low hill.
