Fireball XL5 Technical Operations Manual Special & Standard Edition Pre-Order

“OK, Venus?” “OK, Steve.”
“Right… Let’s go!”

With these words, Fireball XL5 rocketed onto TV screens around the world in 1962! Preceding both Star Trek and Doctor Who, it would set the tone for space-age adventure series in the years to come as well as raise the bar for family programming.

But there’s always been something missing! What was it? And what’s being done about it? Let’s investigate! We are GO for launch!

Fireball XL5 Technical Operations Manual        

Say hello to the all new Fireball XL5 Technical Operations Manual! Penned by Space City’s brightest boffins (and our resident World Space Patrol experts) Andrew Clements and Chris Thompson, this hardcover book is lavishly illustrated in full colour and contains all the technical data fans have been longing to know about XL5, Space City, the alien spacecraft faced by our heroes, the World Space Patrol fleet, and much, much more!

This book goes up for pre-order Friday 2nd Feburary, including a Special Edition packed to the Aquaphibian gills with extra goodness like a cosplay-approved WSP patch, a set of art prints, WSP ID card, and even the audio adventure Cloud of A Billion Lights on Mini Album CD. 

Want to be one of the very first to get your hands on this beautiful set? Sign up to our early bird list to be first in line when the manual goes up for Pre-Order!

To celebrate we are also hosting a live stream on Friday evening if you want to take a closer look at all the action!
