Space: 1999: Aftershock and Awe
In an alternate universe where JFK was never assassinated, man kind has already suffered through World War III, unified into a single world government, and built a base on the moon by the year 1999!
September 13th: 1999 - An atomic accident causes the moon to be blown out of orbit and hurled into the unknown, the survivors of the lunar base stationed there launched towards their destiny across the stars.
But what of the cataclysm and wanton destruction caused to the Earth in its wake?
This ground breaking retro-reintroduction to the sci-fi hit series begins with AFTERSHOCK, which follows nine lives who are forever changed by the carnage left in the moon's wake.
Told from the point of view of those left behind on a ravaged Earth, AFTERSHOCK explores the scientific, environmental, and social political repercussions of a world left with no moon.
The story continues in AWE, which adapts the pilot episode of SPACE: 1999 "Breakaway," as seen through the personal logs of Commander John Koenig and Professor Victor Bergman on Moonbase Alpha -- expanded to include both new and unfilmed material, and utilizing the remastered art of comics legend Gray Morrow as a basis for this revolutionary retelling.
