Blast off into the farthest reaches of space in Fireball XL5!
the future, mankind has at last made its giant leap beyond the bonds of
Earth. Under the supervision of the World Space Patrol, the galaxy and
all its wonders are finally being explored by a fleet of spaceships
unlike anything we have had at our command before. Under the command of
the rugged Captain Steve Zodiac, the fleet's flagship Fireball XL5 investigates the deepest corners of Galactic Sector 25 in search of faraway planets, alien life and adventure.
Another distinctive creation from the mind of producer Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet), Fireball XL5
debuted in 1962 and soon became a favorite of young viewers with one
eye aimed at the television and the other on the rapidly growing Space
Race. Anderson's famous SUPERMARIONATION technique is of course on full
display here, offering its unique look and style to the adventures of
Colonel Zodiac and his crew. All thirty-nine fantastic tales from the Fireball XL5 crew-in glorious black and white-are presented here in an out of this world box set.
