Rules of engagement change for second season of Ronald D. Moore alt-story space race series: because war is coming on the moon. Maybe moon pirates, too?
Apple just released a new trailer for the second season of For all mankind, the alternative history sci-fi series that imagine a world where the space race did not end with nations of the world putting astronauts in orbit and on the moon. Instead, tensions continue to escalate between the United States and Russia as the Cold War simmers, bringing this potential for conflict to NASA’s mission to put humanity in the stars.
What this means for our heroic astronauts is that now, along with the urge to travel and be at the forefront of the space race, they have to face the increasingly real prospect of ‘a conflict on the moon. NASA is to investigate reports that the USSR has stationed a military outpost on the Moon that may be capable of launching nuclear missiles at any target on Earth. Which would be bad, of course!
For all mankind returns to Apple TV + on February 19.
