    Armed camps of eco-survivalists battle purveyors of technology in this exclusive, original production featuring five sci-fi masters and five all-star narrators.

    Karen says: "Fascinating stories"
    "A very intriguing post-ap future"
    Overall

    Short stories in a shared universe are just like novelizations of stories from commercial universes, be they Star Wars, Star Trek, or Battlestar Galactica, so delving into this new world wasn't so hard even though I knew absolutely nothing about its history before I started listening to the stories. Some try to be very deep, some are better than others, some are easier to understand than others, but that is something to be expected from sci-fi/post-ap stories; the authors try to make their stories analogies of something great, or just interesting adventures in a wide, unexplored world. Or multiple worlds as was the case in one story. While some reviewers call it hippie, tree-hugger, or politically-motivated crap, I see it as just how the world turned out after who-knows-what happened to it. Is it preachy? I can see where that complaint originates, but that sort of thing is commonly found in sci-fi. What, you didn't expect to be some near-political-preachy-agenda to be featured in stories read by BSG actors?

    Some of the stories were better than others (John Scalzi's was the funniest), and some of the readings were better than other (Kandyse McClure was AMAZING even though I didn't enjoy the story that much), but I liked it enough to give it 3 and a half stars if I could, but I'll just leave the rating at three stars.
