HG World presents the story of "The Googies" told from the perspective of Ken "Herbie" Peters, a man who has put those long, dark days behind him but is now facing the end of life 35 years later. Part 1 takes us back to that world in the fall before Season 1. What is "The Popcorn Express"? Who are the Googies and why do they work through The Happy Valley Militia? How do Group Captain McInnes, General Ying, Major Grant and Dr. Shiva Vesta figure into these events? *Editor's Note: The Events narrated by Ken Peters in this series fall between the end of Season Zero and the beginning of Season One. The framing storyline takes place many years after the eater uprising. (Don't worry, Ken explains it better than me.)

Also featuring Ron Runeborg as Scott, Ginny Swann as Woman in Truck, Carole Stokes as the Site Dispatcher, Curt Arndt as Crewperson 2, Bernadette Groves as Crewperson 1 and The Nurse, Mandy Burbank as Mrs. Peters, Eric Avedissian as Frantz and Cromp, Scott Pigg as the Emcee, with Ginny Swann performing as India Argento.
