Inhabitant of the planet "Psychon" who joined forces with starlost
members of Moon Base Alpha on the sci-fi series SPACE:1999/SYN/1975-77.
When the Moon was blown out of Earth's orbit by a nuclear
detonation, the members of a research colony stationed on the
lunar surface were thrust into space on a uncontrollable
trajectory. While passing by the planet Psychon, its evil-minded
leader known as Mentor decided to capture the inhabitants of this
runaway moon and drain their minds. However, his daughter Princess
Maya (Catherine Schell) intervened in this diabolical plot and
escaped into space with the earthlings. Grateful for her
assistance, Commander Koenig (Martin Landau) made her a crew
Maya possessed the power of molecular transformation.
Being a "Metamorph" she could change herself (for short periods of
time) into any form on which she concentrated. The image of
whatever she was turning into could be seen in her eye's iris
immediately before the transformation took place. Maya debuted
during a 1976-77 episode entitled "The Metamorph."
