History

Origins and Earliest History

The Moon originated outside of the Sol system; it was originally the moon of the Cthalctose homeworld around 60 million years BCE. At that time it housed the Genesis of Cthalctose which was designed to terraform alien worlds (such as, in the future, Earth) to an environment capable of supporting their species. (NA: Eternity Weeps)

In the real world, however, scientific consensus is that the Moon likely formed due to an impact between earth and another celestial body in the early formation of the solar system.

Later Pre-History

The Silurians went into hibernation because of the appearance of a "small planet" near Earth, the Silurian home planet at that time, which they believed would devastate their world. (DW: Doctor Who and the Silurians)

The Doctor concluded that this referred to the Moon.

Human Era

19th century

In 1878, secretly, as Queen Victoria watched, three British spacecraft, the Cygnus, the Draco and the Lynx launched from rural Scotland. (PDA: Imperial Moon)

20th century

Early 20th century

Some time prior to 2001 there was a base on the Moon at Tycho crater. Movements suggesting active life forms further north in the Eratosthenes crater were spotted as early as 1924. (WEB: visittorchwood.co.uk)

Circa 1959, a alien group landed on the Moon and sent a transmission to Earth. They requested a meeting with the Humans so they could share technology. The American government intercepted the transmission and started NASA's moon project to meet them. (WC: Blue Moon)

Apollo 11 landing
See separate article.

According to most historical accounts, humans officially first set foot on the moon on 20th July 1969.

Contradicting this, one account shows three Human astronauts landing on the Moon in the year 1970, apparently for the first time. As well as spotting the Doctor's TARDIS, they also got in some trouble. (TVC: Moon Landing)

At some point after 1969, the Doctor intended to take Rose Tyler to the Moon, making her unofficially the first Human female to set foot there, but this plan went awry. (NSA: I am a Dalek)

According to one account, Moon landings became routine in a fairly short while. (DWA: Soldiers from Zolta)

The Cyber-Fleet in orbit of the Moon. (DW: Silver Nemesis)
Later 20th century

By the late 20th century, the Cybermen had established a base on the Dark Side of the Moon. The base served as the staging area for a fleet poised to invade Earth. It also could fire missiles at approaching craft (such as the Doctor's TARDIS which briefly materialised in space nearby). (DW: The Invasion) The base (or another one) still existed in 1985 (DW: Attack of the Cybermen) and in 1988, the Cyber-Fleet orbited the Moon and waited for the Cyber-Leader, already on Earth, to acquire the Nemesis so that the Fleet could land, conquer Earth and convert the planet into New Mondas. The Nemesis, sent to rendezvous with the Fleet, exploded and destroyed the entire fleet. (DW: Silver Nemesis)

In the 1970s, the Daleks established a base on the Moon and contacted Professor Pillbright, offering him use of their disintegrator weapon in exchange for his servitude. The Doctor went to the Moon and destroyed their base with a neutron bomb. (TVC: The Disintegrator)

In 1992, the Timewyrm created a replica of Victorian-era Cheldon Bonniface on the Moon in order to trap the Doctor. (NA: Timewyrm: Revelation)

Some time before 2059 the notable space pioneer Adelaide Brooke became the second female britain to land on the moon

21st century

2000s
"Judoon platoon upon the Moon"

The Moon was, up until (and possibly beyond) the 21st century, considered neutral ground under Galactic Law, meaning that if law-enforcement agents such as the Judoon, who would have broken Galactic Law to conduct their affairs on Earth, had free reign to do so on its satellite. Accordingly, the Royal Hope Hospital was transported from London to the Moon, through the use of an H2O Scoop, by Judoon during their search for a Plasmavore murderer. (DW: Smith and Jones)

Mr Smith drags the Moon down to Earth

In 2009 the Moon nearly collided into the Earth as part of Mr Smith's plan to destroy Earth using Luke Smith, whose natural power of telekinesis a device named MITRE had amplified. Earth's weather was affected worldwide. However, with Mr Smith "reprogrammed" by a computer virus, Mr Smith had Luke reposition the Moon back into its original orbit. (SJA: The Lost Boy) A few months later, Earth was relocated to the Medusa Cascade by the Daleks; the Moon, however, remained behind, though it is not known how it maintained its position until Earth was returned to its original location. (DW: The Stolen Earth / Journey's End)

Human Colonization of the Moon

By 2015, when the Doctor and Turlough visited it, Humans had established Lunar Village One. Here they stopped a pair of Dryrth criminals looking for treasure left on the Moon by their people. (DWM: The Lunar Strangers)

In 2070, when Cybermen landed there, a Moonbase housed the Gravitron, a machine that regulated Earth's weather. (DW: The Moonbase) At another time, another base function as a T-Mat relay, co-ordinating T-Mat on Earth. A T-Mat link enabled a person to travel from Earth to the Moon in seconds, until a group of Ice Warriors decided to sabotage the relay. (DW: The Seeds of Death).

The Human moonbase in 2070. (DW: The Moonbase

Later History

By 2540, it served as a penal colony for dissidents against the war between Earth's empire and the Draconians. (DW: Frontier in Space)

Circa the 30th century, Earth scientists were digging for resources on the moon as Earth had begun to run out. (TDL: The Dust of Ages)

Destruction of the Moon

Circa the 53rd century, the Threshold had established Wormwood, a replica of a late 19th century American frontier town on the Moon as well as the superweapon known as the Eye of Disharmony. When the Doctor's traveling companions Izzy Sinclair and Feyde sabotaged the Eye of Disharmony, the resulting feedback destroyed the Moon. (DWM: Wormwood)

Other Moons

In the time of the Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire, the Earth had five moons. A penal colony still existed at this time. (DW: The Long Game, Bad Wolf)

Biological Effects

Werewolves, such as the Host, were transformed from their human form into their wolf form whenever they came under the moonlight. The Doctor, through a telescope at Torchwood House, concentrated moonlight into a laser-like beam which killed the Host, saving Queen Victoria of England. (DW: Tooth and Claw)

Luna
Alternate name: The Moon
Classification: Class D
Affiliation: United Earth Lunar Colonies, United Federation of Planets
Location: In orbit of Earth, Sol system
Dominant Species: Human
Population: 50.2 million
Capital: Tycho city

Luna is a planetoid that is considered to be a moon of the planet Earth and is inhabited by over 50 million people. (TNG movie: Star Trek: First Contact.) For much of Human history, Luna was referred to simply as "the Moon". This largely ceased in the era of interstellar travel, though many natives still use the archaic name. (DS9 episode: "Valiant")

The novel Spock's World identifies Luna as the second member of a binary planet system with Earth, rather than simply being a moon.

In Earth slang people who lived on the moon are called "Lunar schooners." (DS9 episode: "Valiant")

History

Early Vulcan observers to Earth used Luna as a temporary base. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)

In 1969, American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first Humans to walk on the surface of an alien world when they landed at Tranquility Base. See also: Apollo 11.

By 2155, Luna was the location of a great many mining facilities. It was also the primary nexus of the Terra Prime terrorist movement, whose leader, John Frederick Paxton, operated many of these mining operations. That year, Luna was fired upon by Terra Prime to demonstrate to the government of United Earth what they could do if they used their weapons on United Earth Starfleet Headquarters in the capital of San Francisco. (ENT episode: "Demons")

In the 23rd century, the capital of Luna was Luna City, and served as the hub of most communications between Earth and the rest of the Sol system. (FASA reference: Cadet's Orientation Sourcebook)

By 2373, Luna was inhabited by over 50 million people, with such colonies as New Berlin, Tycho City, and Lake Armstrong found on its pressurized surface. (TNG movie: Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Enterprise) Luna was not terraformed; rather, the Lunar Colonies were established and maintained beneath pressurized domes. Some Luna inhabitants enjoyed leaving the domed settlements in environmental suits to visit preserved sites such as Tranquility Base. (DS9 episode: "Valiant".) Politically, it is a subdivision of United Earth. (Star Trek: Star Charts.)

In 2375, Luna hosted a Starfleet base, Lunar Base 3. (TNG short story: "Eleven Hours Out")

In 2376, Robin Rusconi of the USS da Vinci had a bizarre experience with an interdimensional portal located on Luna. (SCE eBook: Breakdowns) That year, Luna was listed as the host location of a current or past marathon. (ST - New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "The Footfalls of Tradition")

Federation President Min Zife attended a diplomatic reception held on Luna in late 2379, shortly before his resignation. The reception was attended by such officials as the Ferengi, Gorn, Romulan, and Klingon ambassadors to the Federation, in addition to many members of the Federation Council. (TNG novel: A Time to Heal)

Later that year, the first presidential candidate debate between Arafel Pagro and Nanietta Bacco was held in the Collins Amphitheatre on Luna. Pagro went into the debate far ahead in the popular opinion polls, but it was as a result of this debate that Bacco began her climb that eventually led her to victory. (TNG novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)

Starfleet's Luna-class starships, and the USS Luna, were named for Luna. (TTN novel: Taking Wing, et al.)

In 2381, Luna was amongst the worlds targeted for extermination during the Borg Invasion, but as miraculousy saved, along with the rest of the Sol system, mere moments before orbital bombardment would have begun. (ST - Destiny novel: Lost Souls.)

History

Legend has it that it's made out of green cheese. Solomon Grundy was briefly exiled to the Moon after his second battle with Green Lantern (Alan Scott).[citation needed] More notably is the fact that the Justice League Watchtower was located here. The moon also became the base of operations for the deity known as Eclipso. The heroes of Earth once staged a massive assault against Eclipso's citadel - a fight that cost the life of Will Payton, aka, Starman. [1]

Superman Movies

In the second Superman movie, the Moon was the site of the first contact between Phantom Zone criminals Zod, Non and Ursa.

Wildstorm Universe

During the leading events to the World's End event during the events of Number of the Beast, the moon was heavily and partially destroyed and scattered into many pieces by a battle between The High and one of his rampant "Reaper" clones.[2]

Luna is the name of the moon on Bear in the Big Blue House (and also the literal Spanish translation of the word "moon.")

At the end of every episode, Bear climbs to the attic to talk to Luna about the day's events. Together they sing "The Goodbye Song" to close the show. More occasionally, other characters sometimes also talk with Luna and/or sing "The Goodbye Song." Bear and Luna are old friends. Luna often knows just what Bear's thinking and sometimes speaks in unison with him. Because she is very old, Luna is full of wise advice.

Luna undergoes a slight appearance change in the fourth season of the show. Her coloring is more yellow.

Luna was recast for the stage show Bear in the Big Blue House Live: Surprise Party (which was also released as the DVD Bear in the Big Blue House Live!.) For that show, Carol Dennis recorded the voice of Luna.

Luna in the mid-26th century, approximately 2552.

Luna, often referred to as the Moon, is the only natural satellite of Earth. Humans began settling on Luna in 2080.[1] As of 2525, the Luna OCS Academy was located there.[2] Due to its still barren face, one can assume it has not been terraformed, probably a result of Luna's low gravity and lack of atmosphere. It is likely Luna was evacuated during the Battle of Earth.

Further information

Historical

The Moon is believed to have been created when a Mars-sized planetesimal (designated Theia by 20th century astrophysicists) collided with Earth in its early history.

The Orpheus Mining Colony, a lunar settlement in 2155.

USS Empire was at Luna VII repair bay on stardate 8513.01. (Research Anthology: "Cross Fire: The Tholian Slaughter")

In an alternate timeline in which the Federation lost the Battle of Beta Frontier, Luna was the site where Future Guy constructed his time portal to bring thousands of soldiers from the 29th century into 2401. It was also the location of Peter Maxwell's home. (Star Trek: Pioneer (PNR): "Destiny of Freedom")

Political

As a major human settlement, Luna falls under Federation jurisdiction and protection. It is also a subdivision of United Earth.

In the 24th century there are over 50 million people living on the Moon. In Earth slang, people who lived on the moon were called lunar schooners. The lunar inhabitants were not fond of the term. (Star Trek: First Contact; DS9: "Valiant"; Star Trek: Pendragon: "Children of the Burning Heart")

Geographical

One of the three monoliths that made up the Alien Obelisk Sol-Sirius Network was located on Luna. (Dimensional Prophecy of Zohar)

Locations

The Vulcanis Lunar Colony is presumably not located on a moon of Vulcan, as it does not have any moons. Given its name, it may be on Luna.
