Our review of the story’s first season called its main character Roger Bragado-Fisher the polar opposite of Doug Eiffel from Wolf 359. Where Eiffel is outwardly chipper and inwardly pessimistic, Bragado-Fisher is “melancholic with a dash of optimism.”

In Capitalism, No One Can Hear You Scream

Those new to the world of “Moonbase Theta, the first season introduces us to the main character Roger Bragado-Fisher. Fisher—played by Leeman Kessler—is the last active operator for a series of Moonbases out in space. The main character has a husband named Alexandre who he mentions on his broadcasts to corporate overlords in charge of the moonbase program. The worldbuilding doesn’t really come into play in the first season until the end. Tor.com called the show hopeful, despite its bleak outlook on “loneliness and the evils of capitalism.”

“Moonbase Theta, Out” started off as a guy alone in space. It became this juggernaut of queer science fiction where in fact, he can be heard. And perhaps more frightening than nobody being able to hear you in space is the idea that someone is watching or listening, they just don’t care.
