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.

Alex is lying on a different floor in pretty much the same position as we last saw Otto. He's waking up, raising his head groggily. His hair has been shaved back from his temples, and we can see a tiny wound on each side.
Caption: Nowhere in the City:
Zondra (OP, electronic): Waking up so soon? Well, good.
Zondra: I have a few choice words for you, Senhor Stern.
Still a bit groggy, Stern sits up on the floor, starts looking around.
Zondra (OP, electronic): You have been a butt-load of trouble for me.
Zondra: You're so damn stubborn, but orders are orders.
Zondra: And I was ordered to find out what your superiors know about us.
Alex glances up towards a door with a window set in it, through which we can see an annoyed Zondra.
Zondra (electronic): And either they don't know anything, or you don't.
Zondra: I tried scopolamine, amobarbitol, rohypnol, even 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate.
Zondra: Finally I had to access your cortical implant directly.
Alex is feeling for the wounds on his temples, noticing them for the first time with his increasing awareness.
Zondra (OP, electronic): Brain surgery was never my forte but there's a surgeon in Pandemonium who will do anything for the right price.
Zondra: So you cost me money as well as time, you absolute prick.
