A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

The Transcript For This Page
Alyss is kicking back in an overstuffed chair in her study, sipping an adult beverage. Hayami pokes her head in the door.
Hayami: I hope I'm not intruding, but ...
Alyss: Come on in, Hayami.
Alyss: I guess it's time to pay you.
Hayami stands near where Alyss remains seated.
Hayami: Pay me? But aren't you ...
Alyss: Your contract is completed. You performed well, but I won't be needing your services now.
Different angle, Hayami is confounded.
Hayami: But … aren't you going back to Zytemonde?
Alyss: Yes, but not as part of the study project. That's over with.
Alyss: This is a personal mission, undertaken with my own funds.
Now Hayami is protesting. Alyss is touching her temple with a finger.
Hayami: Sure, but … you're going into a hostile theater! You'll need muscle.
Alyss: Already covered.
Alyss: I'm sending payment to your account, with a 10 percent bonus for 'hazardous-duty.'
Hayami looks defeated, but makes one last try.
Hayami: But, what's your game plan? How are you going to rescue scores of people?
Alyss: I'm still working on that, Hayami, and it's not your concern anyway.
Alyss: Monty will see you out.
Hayami walks away. We see her in the foreground, casting a heavy-lidded glance back at Alyss, who is sipping her drink.
Hayami: Okay, but … well, be careful, Alyss.
Alyss: I'm always careful, kiddo. That's how I've managed to live this long.
