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
Monty patting one hand on the table, indicating that Diana should sit on it.
Diana: My 'intuition' as you call it is pretty sure that model is the key to why Hayami was murdered.
Monty: That may well be. But right now, we should get you backed-up.
Monty: So, hop up here and let's do this.
Diana is sitting on the table. Monty is handing her a neuro-helmet.
Diana: You know, I'm far from convinced that what gets backed-up is really me.
Monty: Well, it's all of your memories, including those you're not consciously aware of.
Diana is positioning the helmet on her head.
Diana: But is that all we are, the sum total of our memories?
Monty: Oh, we're more than that. Our memories inform the emergent phenomena we call 'personality.'
Diana: But biological bodies are likewise emergent phenomena from billions of years of natural selection, whereas mechanical bodies are human designs.
Diana is now lying supine on the table. Monty is at a console next to the table, making adjustments. Wook is standing by, impassively.
Diana: Well, it may not be true immortality, but it seems like the next-best thing.
Monty: Oh, it's not so bad once you get used to being stronger, faster, and better-looking.
