The Interstellar Moon

This one seems to generate the most comments from people. Every week, the renegade Moon of Space: 1999, visited a new star system. At the very least, only a couple months pass between star systems. The only possible way this could happen is if the Moon was traveling a huge portion of the speed of light and relativistic time dilation was kicking in, or the Moon conveniently fell into a wormholes big enough to swallow a moon. You begin to see the problem here?But even if the Moon was traveling at high percentage of “c” (light speed), how do the Eagles accelerate and decelerate enough to actually visit the worlds of these star systems? And if they can accelerate that fast, why didn’t they just hop onto their Eagles and scoot back to Earth?
