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
Everyone is more relaxed, now. Except Diana, who is now clutching her forearm protectively.
Mechanic: Tell ya what, kiddo:
Mechanic: I'll believe your story, and not kill all three of you, if you let us remove the tracker in your arm.
Diana: Uh … can't you just 'kill' the tracker with an EMP?
Dong and his nieces are not looking happy, but not obstructing. Diana listens to the Mechanic.
Mechanic: Not good enough. Some of these things are pretty tricky.
Mechanic: You can zap 'em and think they're dead but they're really just dormant.
Mechanic: I don't have the greatest medical gear here but I've got good enough for minor surgery.
Diana, the Assistant, the Mechanic.
Diana: Digging a gadget out of my arm doesn't seem very 'minor' to me.
Mechanic: It will be a cake-walk compared with what will happen if you don't agree.
Closer in on Diana, still showing the Assistant, who is wearing a sweet smile.
Diana: Will it hurt much?
Assistant: Oh, probably.
Diana: Will you try not to make it hurt?
Assistant: I can't promise you that, but maybe.
