Inner digipak cover

The Destination Moonbase Alpha compilation film is in high definition, but is not restored like the individual episodes. In comparison, colours are shifted to pink and detail is a little indistinct, if still superior to standard definition.

For both the individual episodes and the compilation film, the picture is pillar-boxed around the original 4:3 ratio (not cropped). The sound on all the features is mono.

The menu shows a loop of action sequences with the series logo and the four menu items listed in a bar across the bottom of the screen.

Note: screenshots are compressed, and are not representative of the quality of the Blu-ray image.
