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 has now stepped up and is directly between Lorelei and Byron. Diana's guards have closed ranks a bit. Cooper is speaking with Diana, flanked by his lieutenants and three other Agents (the other six having moved away).
Caption: He asked me about my whereabouts the evening Juan was taken.
Caption: So I told him about stopping by the mall, the RPLC event ('just looking out of curiosity'), and getting followed and eluding the follower; the trashed apartment ...
Cooper: But why didn't you contact us immediately about your apartment?
Diana gesticulates as she talks.
Caption: In order to explain that I'd have to reveal details of our investigation. So, I fibbed.
Diana: I … I thought the building gerente would take care of that.
Diana: I panicked, okay? And I fled, and kept trying to contact Juan but he didn't answer.
Cooper is looking intensely at Diana, making up his mind. We can see one of Byron's cameras in the frame.
Caption: Then, he paused. I was worried he'd ask me about the dive I fled to, or the hotel I stayed in.
Caption: (I preferred to keep those hiding places a secret. Just in case.)
Caption: Or, that he might decide to make a grab for me after all.
Cooper is displaying a holographic business card, floating at his raised fingertip. The others in the frame look more relaxed.
Caption: However …
Cooper: Thank you, Senhora Martelli, that's all I have to ask you, now.
Cooper: If you have anything to add later, please contact me directly.
Caption: I might have felt relieved, but this was a bit too easy.
