Inspiration for Moonbase Alpha?

Do we need a cite to corroborate that the 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY Clavius Base was the inspiration for Moonbase Alpha in SPACE: 1999? --Kojirovance 23:07, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Removed Sentence

I removed the following for I feel it is commentary:

  • It is almost de rigeur for any science fiction show such as Star Trek to include the most "famous" fictional settlement on Earth's moon.

Tyco City?

Tycho city does not have a long history with science fiction. The Tycho Crater does. There is no Tycho City in any of Clarke's works. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Vince47 (talk • contribs).

In light of all of this, a random anon removed this text:
Tycho City has a long and venerable history in science fiction film and television. It is the location of the "magnetic anomaly" (TMA-1) excavation site on the moon in Stanley Kubrick's seminal 1968 sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey. There was a small, perhaps temporary, base at Tycho. Kubrick's depiction of the main Clavius Base was the inspiration for Moonbase Alpha of TV's Space: 1999.
There is also a Tycho City in the roleplaying game Gamma World.
As per usual, nothing kept here. -- Sulfur 21:30, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Yet more removed stuff

Its placement in the Raymond family tree might suggest that this city was the first to be founded, followed by New Berlin and Armstrong City.
An utterly unfounded bit of speculation -- Capricorn (talk) 12:56, April 21, 2014 (UTC)
