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
The captions will take quite a big chunk of this panel. The lower part is filled with Alyss, Dong, Sergio Cooper, and two of the 'gang' leaders from Pandemonium Sphere looking up in a mix of wonder and confusion.
Caption: The ensuing battle has been well-reported in the docu media so I won't go over that here. Except to acknowledge the bravery and honor of the people who fought for me. I'll never forget them.
Caption: It turned out that Sergio Cooper had quit Smith & Holder, formed his own company, and was immediately hired by Alyss.
Caption: After almost a day of fighting, the defenders were neutralized and the source of Guido's signals was found:
Reverse view to show a very large construction that looks like the opened-up model of the hyper-cubexahedron, doubled, with the twin reversed and facing the first one. There is a small gap between the two which glows with pink-colored energy. The heads of the invaders look very small at the bottom of the fame, indicating the scale of the thing.
Sergio: So, what the heck is this supposed to do?
Alyss: I'll get my grand-kin on it right away.
Sergio is lifting a rather nerdish-looking DeCastries minion by the front of his shirt, like Khan Noonian Singh lifting poor Chekov by the convenient handle on his enviro-suit. The minion is cringing in terror.
Sergio: You! You look like you know what this thing does. Now, either you can tell us, or ...
Minion: I'll tell you everything you want to know! Please don't hurt me!
Still holding the minion, Sergio turns to grin at Alyss, who is not impressed.
Sergio: See? All we had to do was ask politely.
Alyss: I still want my grand-kin here to verify that what this character tells us won't get us obliterated from reality.
