The science is spotty, the special effects are cheap and everything is black and white. Forget everything you’ve learned about the realities of outer space and regress back to the days of the classic movie serials of yesteryear.
Where rocketships travel easily between planets even though they tend to fall “down” when they’re shot by lasers. Where a hero might be fascinated to watch a pen floating across the room in zero G while sipping a hot cup of coffee. Where every alien looks like either a person in a bulky suit or a really large insect.
Join the Rocketship GR-28 as it embarks on a new mission of exploration through a solar system that could only have existed before we knew what we know now.
For continuity sake, please only submit only black and white reference photos. Consider this an experiment in embracing and enjoying weaknesses of a genre while avoiding the temptation to “improve” the universe.
