Moonbase Alpha Original Jacket

For the fist season, the unisex "Moonbase Alpha" uniforms for the first series were created by renowned Austrian fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, a personal friend of series star Barbara Bain. Other costumes were designed by Production Designer Keith Wilson, who was also responsible for set design. For the second series, the Moonbase Alpha uniforms were updated and coloured decorative stitching and turtleneck collars were added, as were various badges and patches. Red, navy, or dark-green jackets also appeared, originally on just the senior staff, then on many of the male extras. The women characters tended to wear skirts and knee high boots throughout the second series, rather than the flared trousers used in series one. The costumes for series two were designed by Emma Porteous, who later designed the wardrobes for several James Bond films. This LSRO patch stand for Lunar Space Research Organization, the technical branch of Alpha. Patch is worn by those directly involved with laboratory research, communications and experimentation in the space sciences. Generally worn just below the identification tag on standard uniforms, occasionally on jackets, etc. by those not primarily involved with research. The initials of one of Alpha's largest sections. The circle shape is the most frequently used shape for patches, representing "wholeness" and the spirit of working together.

This kind of jacket was used by fame Star Wars actor, Richard LeParmentier (Admiral Conan Antonio Motti) in the second season of Space 1999. In this 21st episode entitled “Dorzak”, he plays the part of Ed Malcolm.
