Fiasco on the Planet of the Apes

Fiasco on the Planet of the Apes

Welcome to the Future! Centuries ago, a plague from space wiped out all cats and dogs, and so humans did the only logical thing; they enslaved gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans to replace them. As any schoolchild could tell you, this led to the simians being induced into the labor force, where they were trained by the fascistic government under the harshest conditions, fearing the word, “no,” which was usually accompanied by electric shocks. Among the primates was the child of evolved apes from the future; he led an organized revolt that claimed the planet. Nuclear conflict resulted, and the remaining humans split into two tribes — mute savages in the wild and scarred mutants living in the Forbidden Zone under New York City, maintaining and worshipping a doomsday bomb while refining advanced psychic abilities. Meanwhile, the dominant apes created a society where they ruled over the beast man with an iron fist in a strict, theocratic class system where orangutans rule, chimps think and serve, and gorillas enforce. They now exist denying that humans were any more than animals, although rumors to the contrary persist. When ANSA astronauts from the past find themselves propelled into the far future from the 1970’s, they must survive with cunning and deceit... if survival is even possible.
