Während die Perry-Rhodan-Heftromanserie von den geopolitischen Begebenheiten der realen Welt Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts ausging und die Handlung in einer nahen Zukunft beginnen ließ, geht Perry Rhodan Neo 50 Jahre später von der realen Welt des frühen 21. Jahrhunderts aus und beginnt ebenfalls in einer nahen Zukunft. So fliegt Perry Rhodan nicht im Jahre 1971 zum Mond, sondern erst 2036. Die Handlung nimmt somit aufgrund der geänderten Ausgangslage einen alternativen Verlauf. Die klassischen rationale der Serie werden ebenfalls in eine nahe Zukunft verlagert und entsprechend interpretiert.

Whoever he is, whatever he is, wherever he’s from—he isn’t on the Earth by accident. ” she repeated. ” Stemple shrugged. “I don’t know what to think. But I do know that mankind has explored most of the corners of the globe by this time, and though they’ve found some fairly strange people, they’re all human. From the Hottentots of Africa to the Laplanders to the Chinese, they all have red blood. Earth is a planet, like Mars or Venus. ” Lottie made no reply for a time, gazing down at the face of the man on the bed, seeing him for the first time as a man, not an alien being.

That had been the beginning of the nightmare. As Starbase Twelve dwindled on the rear viewscreens Kirk could see the Rapache peel out of orbit behind them, dogging them on the farthest limits of their scanners but lying between them and any Federation outpost.
