Der Meteor was the first and only release of ten scheduled science fiction audio novels for children in German language. The CDs had been issued without a catalog number, while official distribution had been postponed for later, as well as English and CD-ROM versions. Obviously, the whole project has been cancelled, as none of the planned other releases ever saw the light of day. Below is a list of the planned releases according to the booklet (with additional translations in English):


Das Haus der Welt (The House of the World)
CD1: Der Meteor (The Meteor)
CD2: Der Kristallspiegel (The Crystal Mirror)
CD3: Das Verborgene Land (The Concealed Land)
Das Buch der Könige (The Book of the Kings)
CD4: Die Eiserne Maske (The Iron Mask)
CD5: Die Titanic (The Titanic)
CD6: Atlantis (Atlantis)
CD7: Im Land der Pharaonen (In the Land of the Pharaons)
CD8: Das Große Labyrinth (The Great Labyrinth)
CD9: Im Feuer der Sonne (In the Sun's Fire)
CD10: Der Eisplanet Krypton (Krypton, the Ice Planet)


The story on this CD reports how Jim and Pablo destroy a meteor which causes strange attitudes of men and animals. The text was written by TD's computer assistant Peter Liendl; the band provided some short music clips. The idea resulted from the Rumpelstiltskin project in 1992, TD reported. Unlike that release, Der Meteor contains no pure music tracks; the TD material is only used as background or short intermediate music.


Finally, in 2017, some of the music material was properly released on the album Light Flux.
