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
Ingvar Ranphal, a lean, angular man with dark skin and blue-white hair, is sitting in a booth at a diner, a cup of joe and a small Screen in front of him, which he's reading.
Caption: Ingvar Ranphal was a friend of Juan's back at Smith & Holder, who moved into the position Juan vacated when leaving that company.
Caption: Not a close friend, mind you. But friendly enough he agreed to m eet Juan in the middle of the morning at Jantar de Juana.
Juan is sliding into the opposite seat at Ingvar's booth.
Juan: I hope you haven't been waiting long.
Ingvar: That's okay, this is more or less my office away from the office.
Ingvar: Fewer distractions here. Order the tangerine scones.
Juan is poking a finger at an image that has appeared on the table before him. It's an interactive menu.
Ingvar: So, the old broad really did hire you?
Juan: I have no idea what you're talking about. Did you bring what I asked for?
Ingvar: Yes, but I need some assurances.
Ingvar crosses his arms and regards Juan carefully.
Ingvar: That you won't tell the old broad where you got this.
Juan: A good detective never reveals his confidential sources.
Ingvar: Yeah, but how good are you?
