From sci-fi legend Gerry Anderson (Space 1999, Thunderbirds, UFO), this special-effects-filled series chronicles the adventures of two cops from Earth battling a rogue’s gallery of alien criminals in the year 2040. Transferred from the mean streets of New York City to a teeming alien planet halfway across the galaxy, veteran police detective Patrick Brogan (Ted Shackelford, Dallas) and his rookie partner (Rob Youngblood, NYPD Blue, Sliders) struggle to adapt to their exotic new beat. Tangling with otherworldly outlaws in one deadly close encounter after another, the officers fight to bring intergalactic law and order to a mind-bending realm where the bad guy’s aren’t just bad… they aren’t even human!
Possibly redundant to mention this--seeing that we posted it HERE the other day, but it is a wee bit exciting to see our press release at Home Theater Forum.

Today's exhibit is from the press screening to launch the Space Precinct series in 1994.
Below is a Sky Television Press Launch Bus Ticket Holder. Members of the press were transported from Central London to Pinewood Studios for a special presentation and screening.
Note the name “Intergalactic”; the trading name of the Demeter City Intergalactic Bus Corporation. Everything for this press day was done as if the members of the press were travelling to Demeter
Below: Sky Television Press Launch Bus Ticket. This image shows the three sides that made up the Bus Ticket / Press Launch Invitation. Read the small print on each side, it’s fascinating!
Sky Television Press Launch. Sent with each Press Invitation was fare for the bus, a Demeter City 50 Credits Bank Note. The episode screened for the press was “Predator and Prey”. Black spaghetti was served to the press for lunch to give the impression of being an alien meal!
