Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.

Causa Sui is now keeping station alongside a 'rockpile' – a cluster of medium-sized boulders and smaller stones, bound losely together by their mutual micro-gravity.
Caption: Roughly an hour later:
Murphy (from CS): Well, here's a whole pile of iron rocks, but there's some silicaceous types mixed in.
Hugo is walking briskly down a corridor, Murphy close behind.
Hugo: I hope you won't object if I go out and have a close look personally, this time.
Murphy: I think you have a weird fetish for metallurgy.
Hugo: Cutting rocks with Causa Sui's laser might attract unwanted attention.
Hugo is putting on a thruster-pack. On a shelf next to him is a tool bag.
Murphy: Maybe you should wear a radiation suit.
Hugo: No need. I checked the levels here, and I'm safe enough going 'shirtsleeve.'
Hugo: And I can work faster this way.
Hugo is exiting CS through an open hatch, flying via thruster-pack and with his tool-bag slung over one shoulder.
Murphy: I have a bad feeling about this.
Hugo: We've been very quiet so far, it should be fine.
Hugo: But keep a watch on the scanners, in case we get company.
