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
Wayne stands before what resembles a Concierge's desk at a fancy hotel. Actually it is the entrance to the sky-cab deck in Wayne's building. A large sign over the desk reads, 'SkyNet Closed'. The clerk at the desk is a typical 'Arsociate:' short, bald, hunched. And this one is apologetic. Behind Wayne stands another android servant, carrying Wayne's luggage.
Wayne: Closed?! What is the meaning of this?
Clerk: The traffic computer is down again, sir. No word yet on when it will be restored.
Wayne is indignant. All the clerk can do is avert his eyes.
Wayne: Outrageous! I must get to the Macapá Beanstalk immediately!
Clerk: I'm sorry, sir. When the computer is down only emergency sky traffic is permitted within the city limits.
Wayne is still in the clerk's face; the clerk looks terrified but can only follow his procedures.
Wayne: I am vice-prez for market development at GENSAXWAL!
Clerk: Y-yes, sir. GENSAXWAL owns the SkyNet and sets the rules for your s-safety, sir.
Wayne can only fume in frustration as the clerk touches some spots on his computer touchscreen.
Clerk: I can order you a limousine to Antwerp, where the net is working, and you can take a sky-cab from there to Macapá.
Seamus: Ground transportation! How demeaning.
