The evil futurecorp from Space: Above and Beyond (and Millennium) was AeroTech http://spaceaboveandbeyond.wikia.com/wiki/AeroTech

Richard Hoagland and the Moon Landings: Here’s some stuff on Hoagland’s lunar structures in general. I can’t find anything on his claim that the landings were faked but I definitely heard him say it on Art Bell’s short lived Midnight in the Desert show back in 2013.
