Adventure Theater began as an experiment. The idea was to bring the thrilling days of audio dramas back to a 21st Century audience. Podcasts are great, audiobooks are wonderful, but surely there was a place for something between the two, that incorporated dialogue, music and sound effects.
And that’s where The Omega Contingent came in.
The entire concept for The Omega Contingent appeared as a flash of inspiration for its producer, writer and director, Anthony Sakovich. In less than 24 hours, the world was fleshed out, including the crew of the Peregrine, the Peregrine itself, the technologies that powered the ship, O.C.E.A.N. (The Organization of Civilized, Educated and Advanced Nations), and the idea that the crew would be working in the background of real historical events, causing history to turn out the way we now remember it.
But had they not been there…?
And that’s the fun question behind The Omega Contingent. Who were these mysterious heroes that use technologies we didn’t know we had, to save the world from dangers most people didn’t know they were facing?
Every episode tells us more about the background of the crew. From the mysterious, but apparently ancient Omicron, to the freakishly large mutant of a Russian giant, Gamma, the episodes take us deeper and deeper into both real historical events, as well as the personal stories of the people that populate this slightly alternate vision of the past.
