Ronald D. Moore, along with Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi, are working on a new series titled For All Mankind. Described by Deadline as a “space drama,” the series will explore a reality in which the mid-century space race “had never ended.” See: In the 20th century, the United States and Russia competed in the “Space Race,” a global competition to achieve dominance in spaceflight. Spinning off the arms race for nuclear weaponry in the aftermath of World War II, achieving breakthroughs in the Space Race would assure citizens of either nation not just the sophistication of national security, but in ideological superiority. In other words, the Space Race was a billion-dollar status symbol, one that would signify which country was more prepared for the future. The United States effectively “won” the Space Race on July 20, 1969, when NASA successfully landed the first men on Earth’s Moon. The legacy of the Space Race endures in the form of sophisticated consumer technologies, ranging from laptop computers, satellites, video game joysticks, freeze drying, and virtual reality, to non-consumer tech such as water purification systems, solar cells, landmine removals, and food safety procedures adopted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. But as the series asks: What if the race to space had never ended? Based on how much our real, everyday life made quantum leaps thanks to the breakthroughs made during the Space Race, For All Mankind might depict life with far more advanced technology than we currently have.
