Storyline

In an alternative 1969, the world, and especially the United States, watch in shock as the Soviet Union successfully manages to land men on the Moon before the USA does. With that defeat, NASA is presented with a renewed challenge in the space race that they never expected to face. Now, the cold war rivalry takes on a new intensity and grander ambition to reach far further than ever dreamed and with more diverse resources than ever before. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol1970@gmail.com)

Trivia

According to Ronald D. Moore, the idea of the show came about during lunch with former NASA astronaut Garrett Reisman, when they discussed the possibility of an alternate history in which the Russians reached the moon before the Americans. See more »

For all humankind
31 July 2020 | by TricyclSee all my reviews

The sequences related to space exploration, NASA politics, etc, are quite interesting and sometimes even breathtaking, but petty drama and the societal aspect of things take way, way too much space.

It's absolutely fine to denounce sexism in the 60-70's, but they insist so heavily on it that it quickly becomes exhausting and actually shadows the space race aspect. Misogyny is constantly rubbed into your face in a rather shallow and unsubtle manner that leaves you on your toes anytime a man interacts with a woman, as he will more often than not behave like a condescending idiot and throw the most gratuitous, patronising and misogynistic comment without even realising it.

I guess that's 2020 for you. The greatest and most spectacular adventure in the history of mankind is an excuse to talk about gender relations. Surprisingly they don't focus that much on racism, I guess it will be for next season when they catch-up with Black Lives Matter.

Once you can see past or fast-forward through that, it can be quite good when it focuses on its supposedly main subject, space, but those moments are frustratingly rare.
