I seem to remember them as Eagles. The sewage plant blew up, actually it was a hazardous waste dump for Earth after an all out nuclear war in 1987. Gee, I remember the first episode when the opened Moon Base Alpha the very first time to setup operations.
'Eagles' is correct. I think it was an homage to the original LEM on Apollo 11. And yeah, it was the Nuclear (or "Nuc'lar" if you're from Texas [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] ) waste dump on the moon that blew up. You would think an explosion that large would have ripped the moon apart than throw it out of its orbit. But that is the fun of SciFi, you can tweek things to fit the script.
I have no idea where Maya came from, I remember somethings about the show but not all. I had to save room for some of my schoolwork. [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
