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.

In the visitors' room, we look over Nicole's shoulder at a middle-aged Latino man, with a friendly demeanor, dressed in conservative business attire.
Caption: Inside the jail, Nicole meets her visitor:
Bustamante: Herberto Bustamante. I understand you've gotten in a bit of trouble, and I'm here to help.
Nicole: Are you from Smith & Holder Resolutions?
View of the visitors side of the visitors' room. We've seen this scene before, although at present there are no other visitors besides Bustamante.
Bustamante: Yes, that's right. They assigned me to advocate for you.
Nicole: I haven't been able to call anyone. How did you know I'm here?
Closer-in shot, looking over Bustamante's shoulder at Nicole. She's looking thoughtful.
Bustamante: Ah, the company has an arrangement with the Lunar authorities to notify us in the event one of our clients is arrested.
Nicole: I guess that makes sense.
Looking over Nicole's shoulder at Bustamante. He is smiling like a satisfied cat.
Nicole: Although I don't know why they'd honor that agreement but not allow me the tel-call their own laws call for.
Bustamante: No matter, I'm here now, and you'll be taken care of.
