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 and Areum are standing at the restaurant entrance. They're dealing with a maitre d'.
Caption: Despite being 'open air' this restaurant is a fairly exclusive membership club.
Caption: Fortunately Alyss gave me a pass-key as a 'honored guest.'
Caption: Meaning, Alyss was guaranteeing my good behavior.
Establishing shot of Jorge Wickberg 'holding court.' Appearing as a portly, middle-aged man with a half-beard, he's sitting in an overstuffed chair flanked by four attractive women, one of whom is hand-feeding him grapes. He has a goblet in one hand and a cigar in the other. A gaggle of plebians is gathered around him and his girls.
Caption: Wickberg as not difficult to locate.
Caption: I would not be surprised to see someone like him being carried around on a palanquin.
Caption: Such an ostentatious display must be expensive, even here.
Diana, with Areum close behind, attempts to push through the throng surrounding Wickberg. One of the plebians objects, and puts a palm against her shoulder to restrain her.
Caption: But I didn't have all day to talk, so:
Diana: Excuse me, I need to ask ...
Plebian: Hey, no pushing! Wait your turn like the rest of us!
Areum has quickly moved in and caught the objecting plebian in a painful wrist-lock. The others stand back as Diana moves forward.
Diana: Sorry, friend. I only have a few questions for Sr. Wickberg.
Diana: I'm sure you'll get your chance to tell him all about your cool game idea soon.
