Each set had 400 colour stickers, each 7 x 5 cm. Almost all the photos are screen-shots (blow-ups from 16mm film frames) from the episode, not publicity photos. The sticker backs had the series logo, sticker number, and text in 6 languages. The first series packets were black, with a photo of Moonbase Alpha and Koenig. The Year 2 packets were red, with a rescue Eagle in front of the Moon.
