Trope-a-Day: Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising: Played very literally straight on one world in the Peravera (Kaylin Cache) system, where the local – quite large – moon has an unstable orbit and is descending rapidly towards the Roche limit. Fortunately, the world in question is uninhabitable; but since it’s going to become even more so in hundreds or at most a couple of thousand years, the bidding for orbital slots for viewing satellites to capture this particular rare cosmic event in highly broadcastable detail is already quite vigorous.
