Opening Narration

Announcer: Once upon a time, a junk man had a dream.
Harry: I wanna build a space ship. Go to the Moon. Salvage all the junk that's up there. Bring it back and sell it.
Announcer: So he put together a team. An astronaut, a fuel expert. They build a rocket ship and they went to the moon. Who knows what they'll do next?

Harry's spacecraft actually flew to the lunar surface and salvaged equipment left behind by the Apollo missions.

Assisting him was former NASA astronaut, Addison "Skip" Carmichael (Joel Higgins), and rocket propellant expert Melanie Slozar (Trish Stewart) who developed the special propulsion fuel, Monohydrozyne.
