S2 Promo – Meet the Voices
(No Transcript Available)
Only a few days away from the S2 launch now, and we’ve got a special promo piece for you today – we’ve asked each of the voice actors to say a few words about how they built their characters. It’s fun and fascinating to hear, and hopefully it’ll get you excited for August 18th!
Season 2 covers the same sequence of events as S1 – thus, each episode will include notes directing you to the relevant parts of S1, so you can re-listen if you’d like!
S2E1 – “Roger, Ashwini, Alexandre”
(S1B1 – “Twenty-One”; S1E1 – “Twenty”)
Roger begins his reporting on Moonbase Theta communications by sharing an intimate message to his husband. Ashwini bemoans a quiet night and the general lack of appreciation for zir genius. Alex replies to Roger with equal love, but also opens up about his frustrations and concerns.
S2E2 – “Roger, Michell, Wilder”
(S1E2 – “Nineteen”; S1E3 – “Eighteen”)
Roger tries to open up in his reply to Alex, acknowledging their problems and reflecting on the universe they inhabit together. Michell L’Anglois, Security, makes a personal report on the rest of the crew … at times, very personal. Wilder takes a moment to go through her current task list and cuddle a rogue hedgehog.
S2E3 – “Alexandre, Nessa, Roger”
(S1E4 – “Seventeen”; “S1E5 – “Sixteen”)
In the aftermath of political instability, Alexandre tries desperately to get a message through to Roger. On-Base, Nessa composes a message to her family in Zhengzhou while keeping up her work in the hydroponic farm. Roger is finally able to listen and reply, and as things calm down the conversation deepens.
S2E4 – “Roger, Michell, Nessa”
(coming September 29th, 2019!)
(S1E6 – “Fifteen”; S1E7 – “Fourteen”)
Roger vents to himself about the changes in Base management and how they’re likely to affect how others see him. Michell provides an official report that ends in a rant about his own frustrations. Nessa discusses the changes coming about, in her new duties and in her private thoughts.
S2E5 – “Roger, Nessa, Ashwini”
(coming October 13th, 2019!)
(S1E8 – “Thirteen”; S1E9 – “Twelve”)
It has come out that the asteroid warning was a fake; Roger discusses how it came about and considers possible consequences. Nessa extends an olive branch to Michell, including some very personal details from her past. Ashwini is caught up in a whirlwind of distraction until Tumnus pulls zir out.
S2E6 – “Michell, Roger, Alexandre”
(coming October 27th, 2019!)
(S1E10 – “Eleven”; S1E11 – “Ten”)
Michell is still riding high after Roger’s official reprimand – but receiving Nessa’s message brings him crashing back down. Roger sends a message home and gets down to the real, painfully secret source of his problems. Alex responds with an intimate admission of his own, and looks to their future together.
S2E7 – “Roger, Nessa, Wilder”
(coming November 10th, 2019!)
(S1E12 – “Nine”; S1E13 – “Eight”; S1E14 – “Seven”)
Roger continues the conversation – and the healing – with his husband. Nessa receives a lovely message from one of her partners, Elena, and squeezes in a response in kind before she has to get to the mines. Wilder records a personal log before work, as well – but then adds a postscript after a tragic accident ends the shift.
S2E8 – “Wilder, Roger, Michell”
(coming November 24th, 2019!)
(S1E15 – “Six”; S1E16 – “Five”)

S2E9 – “Roger, Ashwini, Alexandre”
(coming December 8th, 2019!)
(S1E17 – “Four”; S1E18 – “Three”)
Roger is still awake and falling apart, desperate to regain contact. Ashwini fights despair in zir own way, resulting in a long-planned revelation to Tumnus. Alexandre sends a final message to Roger, knowing there’s little chance it will arrive but unable to wait any longer.
S2E10 – “Roger, Ashwini, Wilder” – SEASON FINALE
(coming December 22nd, 2019!)
(S1E19 – “Two”; S1E20 – “One”)
Roger is still on his way back from Moonbase Delta, stopping to share more thoughts on what he found.
