   * The peaceful, highly advanced continental civilization of Atlantis has flourished for many years, led by philosopher-kings. When Ongar, leader of the alien civilization on Luna (the Moon), decides to invade Earth using atomic bombs, much of Atlantean society is destroyed. However, an unexploded warhead is retrieved, and the Atlanteans are able to learn how it works in time to build atom bomb warheads of their own. As the civilization on the Moon above is completely destroyed by numerous atomic blasts that vaporize the thin atmosphere, earthquakes created by the atomic bombs on Earth below cause the continent of Atlantis to sink. Meanwhile, civilization does not return to the Moon for another 12,000 years, and civilizations on Earth are largely destroyed or lost. It takes several centuries before notable civilizations begin to arise once again.
