Planet of the Apes: The Fall (2002) is a novel by William T. Quick that serves as a prequel to the Planet of the Apes film "re-imagining" by Tim Burton. A sequel to this novel, Colony, continued its story. Both novels tell the story of Semos, the savior worshiped by the apes of Burton's film.

Plot[edit]

As the crew of the space station Oberon search for their missing pilot Captain Leo Davidson, a time dilation storm pulls the station into its heart forcing the Oberon to crashland on an alien planet.

With most of the crew dead, the marooned survivors embark on a controversial genetics program to reengineer the various apes that survived the crash, into a strong-subservient and intelligent labor force to help them create a new colony.

However, beneath the surface of the world, there exists a new threat. Now the survivors must transform the primates into a genetically enhanced Army to help defend them, before their greatly reduced technological resources are depleted.
