As a child in the 70s I hate watched Space 1999 it had one of the dumbest premises ever. I did like all preteen boys love Maya in the second season. A good actress and really the only interesting character

Landau was also an excellent actor. He won an Oscar as Bela Legosi.

He was 89 and he was also in original Mission Impossible tv series with Barbara Bain who also costarred in Space 1999. Not sure if the characters were married in Space 1999. Anyone recall
