  • News: The French news-stand editions of the DVDs are selling so well, Year 2 discs will follow immediately after Year 1. Space 1999 appeared on the news stands at the same time as two other science fiction DVD series, Star Trek and Stargate SG-1, but the "Space:1999 magazine" proved to be a strong seller anyway. The discs are the same as in the boxed set, but in new packaging. Each disc has a 12-page booklet, containing photos, articles and information about the episodes. As in the first edition, the first two DVDs will appear together as a giant presentation package with booklet. The 4 remaining DVDs will be released every 15 days. Thanks to Alain Carrazé
