Space:2099 aka Fandom Never Ceases to Amaze Me

Space: 2099 is a fan made series of 3 minute segments that update and enhance the original episodes of the hit scifi television series Space: 1999.

This of course is all done out of an affection for the original television series, but does address such nagging problems as "Why doesn't the moon crack open under the stress of being pulled out of orbit?"

But beyond the fact that fans are doing this for no remuneration whatsoever, the amazing thing is the level of craft and talent these fan "re-creators" employ to redesign this show. Using "open source" software tools like Blender they are going all out to make sure the 2099 version of the show is top notch.

Take a look at the video of a SFX sequence.

If you're a fan of the 1999 show like I am, then it's worth your time to take a look at the various episodes the creative fans of Space: 2099 have completed thus far.

I think you'll be impressed.
