Star Fleet: The Complete Series (R2) in February

Fabulous Films have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Star Fleet: The Complete Series on 9th February 2009 priced at £39.99 RRP. This marionette epic first arrived on British television in October 1982 broadcast on Saturday mornings on LWT. Children had previously been brought up on Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds and Stingray, but Star Fleet was something else again. The Action and story line were more reminiscent of anime and unlike the Gerry Anderson Shows, those puppets were controlled from below by rods, like muppets, and so avoided difficulties with strings.

Synopsis: In 2999, just as the people of earth begin to enjoy peace following the end of space war 111, the imperial alliance under the imperial master launch a new assault. Facing the evil alliance, earth’s defending forces are ill-prepared for another war and pin their hopes on Dr Benn Robinson and his new X-Bomber programme. What is F-01 which the imperial alliance so eagerly purses?
