A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

During the "Welcoming" scenes at the beginning of the movie, one alien race being greeted have a design similar to (but not identical to) the Mondoshawans from The Fifth Element (1997), which was also directed by Luc Besson.
It's our mission that doesn't make sense, sir.
The station is moved away from Earth because its gravity is having an effect. The only effect it could have is a tidal effect, and this seems unlikely given its relatively small size compared to the moon. Putting it into an orbit round the moon would be an easy fix since the combined mass would be only negligibly larger. Another easy fix would be to move to a new location at the L2 or L3 Lagrange points (L2=behind the moon, L3=opposite the Earth [behind the sun]) and drop a satellite at the L3 or L4 points to retain contact with Earth. (The Lagrange points are where gravity effects cancel each other out in a 2 body system [Earth/Moon, Sun/planet, etc])
The subtitle of this film, (City of a Thousand Planets,) is an amalgam of the titles of the first two Valerian comics, "City of Shifting Waters," and "Empire of a Thousand Planets."
