The Peter M. Harring Airfield is bustling with life as the celebration of the Trans-Oceanic Expedition is about to begin. Everybody is exited to see what the explorers brought back home from their journey. After the war against Vanos the Kingdom of Great Astar is yearning for more peaceful times, and so is Florence, who came to see the celebration for completely different reasons.

  • The show featured a Blacklight Scene which was played with movable planes which was performed in front of the stage, which is quite unusual for Puppet-Theater.
  • Since the Pompeii Show there where no four-legged puppets used since they were consindered as too comlicated to play and would use too much (3) puppeteers. Ortha was manouvered by at least 4 Puppeteers and even 5 in the UV-Scene which makes her the most complicated puppet since. Tioh who had the lead, over the building of Ortha, said that building that puppet was equaly the effort of making three fursuits since it features way more animatronics and unusual design-challenges.
  • while a normal Puppet weighs between 500 and 2500 Grams (depending on the animatronics) Ortha weighs 15 Kilograms[1] which made it necessary to have a puppeteer with a backpack-mount to carry her throughout the show.
  • The Intro Show the Events that happenened before the Storyline of the Show, from the Colonisation of the World, The invention of planes, the war between Vanos and Graet Astar and the rebuilding after it. According to LunoWroo he imagined Great Astar as a mountainous country, because in the timeline the invention of flight took place before they where able to cross the oceans with ships.
