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 at the front desk of Perez & Sons. The receptionist is a Spyder. She's at a workstation with two keyboards, one above the other, which he's working with four of her hands.
Caption: The front desk clerk at Perez & Sons turned out to be a Spyder.
Caption: Spyders were genetically engineered several centuries ago to work in microgravity. You don't see them often in gravity zones heavier than 1 mepersec.
Receptionist: Welcome to Perez & Sons … ah, what can I do for you gentle-sapients?
Diana, Areum and the Receptionist.
Diana: We'd like to speak with Stefan, please.
Receptionist: Do you have an appointment?
Diana: Ah, no, but we only need a few minutes of his time.
The Spyder peers at her workstation holoscreen.
Receptionist: Well, you're in luck. Stefan's current session ends in about 10 minutes.
Receptionist: I can squeeze you in for 20 minutes before his next appointment.
Receptionist: That will be 15 mills, please.
Diana is a bit taken aback; Areum is placid.
Diana: Oh! Uh, we're obviously not here for maintenance services.
Diana: I just want to ask him a few questions.
Receptionist: Time is money here. I don't care what you do with Stefan, and I don't want to know.
Receptionist: But it's 45 mills for 20 minutes, payable in advance.
