Default Scenarios based on 'The Cape' (1990s tv series)

'The Cape' was a failed American drama series built around the shuttle program. Lasting only one season, the series nevertheless touched on some plot ideas that could be mined for scenarios, especially the episode 'Buried in Peace' which has a shuttle rendezvousing with a failed 1960s era Soviet moonshot (Which appears to be using a standard Soyuz... See the attached screenshot.). The series never made it to DVD, but i have found a YouTube channel that appears to have uploaded the full run of the series.

It might be worth looking into, the link below points to the channel in question.

For what it's worth I had a look through the 'Lost Cosmonauts' ("Buried in Peace") episode, looks like the people who made the episode used a model of an ASTP or later Soyuz for the 'Moonshot' vehicle. I've attached a screenshot to the OP of the only time we see the full vehicle, every other shot in the episode is from the rear, keeping the anachronistic docking arrangements out of sight.


I've found a thread on CollectSpace that has some photographs of the fake mission patches created for the series and some shots of the model Soyuz from "Buried in Peace", which confirms they used the wrong Soyuz in the story.
