HomeSeason 1Season 2

For a long time, humanity has been storing its nuclear waste in vast disposal sites on the far side of the Moon and it is the responsibility of the inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha to look after the site. However, on 13 September 1999, a massive thermonuclear explosion occurs following the detection of an unknown form of magnetic radiation which causes the critical mass of nuclear waste to detonate.

The force of the blast acts like an enormous booster rocket, hurling the moon out of Earth orbit and into deep space at colossal speed, thus stranding the 311 personnel stationed at Alpha. The runaway Moon, in effect, becomes the spacecraft on which the those personnel travel, constantly in search of a new home.
