Mr. Bulb, where have you been the last 300 years? Luna is the scientific name for the moon. Everybody knows that!

Sounds like it could be interesting--and has the advantage that it won't be quickly obsoleted like the early-21st-century versions that have been proposed a few times. The Chrononauts themes could probably be more easily optimised for good gameplay if you didn't have to stick to the restrictions of vaguely resembling reality, so *some* sort of future timeline seems ideal. Make sure there are complications like the original Chrono. has and EAC lacks--the Nexus and Uberparadox always make life interesting, and the game really ought to have some events of that flavor.

But I'm afraid that nobody who lives on the Moon *ever* calls it Luna.... ;)
