Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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
Diana pauses a moment in the back office, she is still clearly in pain from the broken arm, grimacing, bent forward.
Caption: The pain was considerable. Kempadoo broke both my radius and ulna.
Caption: I had to stop a moment to catch my breath, gather my resolve.
Diana reacts to pounding on the locked door behind her.
Caption: For a moment I considered waiting for that crazy agent to calm down.
Caption: But then she started banging on the door.
The wall screen in front of Diana changes, forms a hexagon 1.5 meters across, within which we can see outside.
Caption: There was no 'back door,' or even a window, in the conventional sense.
Caption: But Juan was paranoid – or prescient – enough to install an emergency 'Murphy gate' in the rear wall-screen. I activated it with a code from my implant.
Slinging her flyer-case forward, Diana jumps through the gate.
Caption: I had … let's just say, safety concerns about that gate.
Caption: I'd never have used it except that the pain and fear of more pain combined thrust me forward.
