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.

Li’s ship glides through a broad tunnel. They pass another one going the opposite way.
Li: (from inside ship) I recommend you put on your battle-suit and your cloak, William.
William: Won’t I stand out? I’ll be almost 2 ½ meters tall.
But before emerging into the domed crater interior, the ship starts to drop through a shaft that has appeared just before the tunnel’s end.
Li: (from inside ship): Trust me, on Azmodo a tall sumbitch in a capote is a lot less noticeable than a bionic boa on a golden flying basket.
The ship proceeds forward through another broad tunnel that has a series of berths most of which contain other spacecraft of various types.
William: Well, if it’s a ‘capote’ then I don’t feel quite so declassé wearing it.
Li: That’s the spirit.
Cut scene: William and Li are emerging from a broad gate leading from the berths area. William is wearing a dark, ankle length cloak. What bits of the battle suit can be seen are a dull black. Likewise what we see of his face is black – pretty much just eyes and teeth.
William: Do you know where to find this contact of yours?
Li: Well, in a manner of speaking, yes.
The pair stroll down a more narrow, busy corridor full of shop entrances, signage. A lot of other people are wearing cloaks or facial coverings.
William: ‘In a manner of speaking?’ Don’t speak in riddles with me.
Li: What I mean is while I don’t exactly know where to find my contacts ...
William and Li enter a shop front with signage indicating it’s a bar with a nautical theme: ‘The Poop Deck’ complete with image of a peg-legged pirate.
Li: … I know a place where they will find me.
William: I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
