Notes on the Setting[]

The show takes place on an Earth protected by the spirit Gaia and features some futuristic devices. Conceived as taking place in the near future the series kept many elements of the real world in tact- including the Soviet Union from which one of the characters, Linka, originates. However when the USSR was dissolved before Season 3 aired the creators decided to have a similar off-screen collapse occur. The economic fallout of this is latter seen in the episode; Missing Linka.
