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
Wook falls back into Diana's arms, blood gushing from the side of her neck. Diana is in shock.
Caption: Carmen had appeared literally out of nowhere. I wondered later whether she had used holographic camouflage or was just supernaturally stealthy.
Caption: At the time, however, my brain was too shocked to think about anything.
Diana has dragged Wook's dying body back into the room, bawling her eyes out, as Carmen stands nonchalantly in the doorway.
Caption: If we'd been on Zytemonde, Wook's body would have pinned me to the floor. Fortunately the gravity here was only 3 mesecs* … less than half of Zytemonde's.
Carmen: She doesn't have much to say for herself now, does she?
Caption: *mesecs = meters per second squared
Carmen has stepped aside from the doorway, and more goons come trotting in. Diana is crouching over Wook. Trying to staunch the blood coming from her wound.
Carmen: Well, I suppose this is better than if you'd brought the other body-guard. That one was so cute I would have regretted having to kill her.
Caption: That final remark sealed her fate.
Diana and Wook are surrounded by a discus of shockwave, with a calm sphere in the center. Carmen and the goons surrounding them are caught with the full force of the blast.
Caption: I detonated Dong's sonic grenade.
