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, Dong, The Assistant, and the Mechanic are looking up at an image on a large monitor. The image is of a small electronic doodad being held by a pair of tweezers, vastly enlarged.
Caption: Two hours later:
Diana: That's it?
Assistant: Its size is not impressive. Its sophistication is, however. State-of-the-art.
Reverse view to show the characters looking up at the monitor. We can see the nieces behind them. Diana has a cast on her right arm.
Mechanic: I gotta hand it to deClayre, when she bugs someone, she doesn't go cheap.
Diana: Am I supposed to feel privileged?
Mechanic: If I knew someone paid 50 Moebits just to track my movements, I'd feel validated, at least.
Same characters, different angle.
Diana: Fifty Moebits! What are you going to do with it?
Mechanic: Study it, make some improvements, and sell the crap out of copies.
Mechanic: Then, sell gizmos that can detect 'em more easily.
Same characters, different angle. The Mechanic is laughing, Dong is rolling his eyes.
Diana: But then someone will get hold of one of your detectors, and engineer a better tracker.
Mechanic: Ha-ha! Then we'll one-up on 'em again! It's a game that never ends! I love it!
