This seems to be the most appropriate forum to pose my question, though it doesn't deal with BA. It might lead into a discussion about BA in this particular series.
I remember that German public TV broadcasted in the late 80s a series produced by several European TV stations. It was rather cool - that's what I remember, anyway, because it was about the European space program. Actually, Europeans went to space, they built their own shuttle (Sänger?) and so on. Now, what was that series name? And does anyone remember details? Has it ever been released on VHS/ DVD? Reruns? Bad Astronomy?
I watched it when I was a kid, basically I just remember that this thing ever existed.

That rings absolutely no bell in my head. Strange... :roll:
Maybe it was on a commercial tv channel? I couldn't get these at this time.
Perhaps you should ask in the usenet group de.sci.raumfahrt (http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&safe=off&num=25&group=de.sci.raum fahrt)

The series ran in Germany on public TV (ARD or ZDF). The title was something like "Project ...". It must have been a co-production of several public TV broadcasting services across Europe, so other Europeans might have watched it.
I'll try that usenet group...thanks for the hint.

I've emailed your post to an Austrian friend of mine. Haven't heard back yet but I'll let you know once I hear from him.

Off the top of my head, the only German Scifi show I can remember is Raumpatrouille Orion.

The Lawyer actually figured it out, but his post got deleted when the site went down a couple of days ago. I can't remember what the name of the show was though.

Oh. What was it?

The answer was Mission Eureka (http://homepages.tesco.net/~plk33/plk33/Guide/MissionEureka.htm). I don't have the slightest memory of this... There was another dull Britsh-German SF series in the late 70's, Star Maidens (http://www.animus-web.demon.co.uk/maidens/). You've missed nothing if you haven't seen it.


I think I've posted this here before... :roll:

PS: Raumpatrouille (http://www.orionspace.de/ww/de/pub/english.htm) was great. Much cooler than ST:TOS.
