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.

Nicole sits on her bed and ponders.
Nicole (thought): Even though the hotel's name was obscured, Lunkhead must've recognized the building.
Nicole (thought): So he's familiar with this neighborhood.
Nicole lies down again across the bed, thinking.
Nicole (thought): But Philbert's just an irritant.
Nicole: (thought): The real problem is Claud Southend, dogging me like … like Inspector Javert after Jean Valjean.
Close-up on Nicole, brow knitted in thought.
Nicole (thought): I won't go to Seamus with this.
Nicole (thought): He's got enough to worry about as it is. Rejuv treatments are not without risk.
She flops over on her stomach, still thinking.
Nicole (thought): I can handle this myself.
Nicole (thought): If only I can figure out what to do.
