This was an unreleased CDTV game. I found some info here:

http://www.ifrance.com/ninjaw/cd32/_...ctive%20II.htm

Quote:
Lunar Rescue: The Colossus Incident (Odyssey): Odyssey was one of a handful of U.S.-based labels to take a real interest in CDTV. Lunar Rescue, slated to appear on CDTV in the fall of 1992, would have been Odyssey's third and most original and substantial undertaking - about 50 megabytes of game-cum-space database built around the rescue of a crashed Apollo spacecraft. Unfortunately, CDTV crashed first.

For a time, Odyssey pursued Lunar Rescue as a PC CD-ROM project, but that appears to have fallen by the wayside as well. (I was unable to reach the publisher for an update.)

Mmmm...not quite. Whilst the CDTV version didn't exactly happen, this particular release was 1989 (as opposed to the fall 1992 CDTV release date). According to the ad, the game was available for Amiga and ST, and coming soon for PC & C64.

Another game advertised on that full page is Space War, which is a floppy release that was also scheduled for a 1992 CDTV release date. I suspect the latter had the same fate as Lunar Rescue CDTV. I definitely have the floppy version of Space War, though.

I'll have a dig through my CD's for Lunar Rescue floppy version.

I'll also go ahead and scan the advertisement, as well, so it can reside in HOL as a reminder. I looked through a pile of CD's and haven't found it yet (because I kept getting sidetracked by other goodies I found the the CD's...), but I will resume operations after work.
