Episode Thirty – Apollo Rising

Apollo Rising

Apollo is a Dark Listening Station … Apollo is a Downed Ship … Apollo is a Small Colony … Apollo is a Forgotten God, most of all by Himself … Apollo is a Cloud-Intelligent Microbe Swarm
Apollo is all of these things

What happens when a breakthrough is made, and people suddenly understand what a God is, and how they can finally do something about it?

Launching that first spacecraft into orbit breaks the barrier separating Earth from the rest of the Universe, and the Things outside are starting to leak in

The Trials & Tribulations of a Lunar Vinyard

The Space Race continues long after Apollo 17, and the Cold War expands into colonization and espionage on the Moon

“Apollo Rising” looks like it’s going to be an awful film, and a small group set out to stop it from being released, either by heist or subterfuge
