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
Seamus, Buford and Nicole passing through an airlock into the Haughty XL-5.
Buford: My people were once enslaved by those implants, you know.
Nicole: I've read the histories. It sounds horrible.
Seamus, Nicole and Buford settle into their seats/acceleration couches, arranged is receding rows of three, one side of an off-center passageway.
Seamus: The devices used then were primitive and very different in function from the implants most L-5ers and even Lunans use now.
Buford: So it is claimed.
Seamus, Nicole and Buford, in their seats, looking around. Nicole is looking at Buford. In the row of seats behind them, someone who looks a lot like the elder George Bush is getting into the aisle seat.
Nicole: Buford, I've had implants for close to a decade now, and I've never felt any outside will controlling my thoughts.
Buford: How do you know what having your thoughts controlled feels like?
Seamus smiles at Buford -- he's beginning to warm on her.
Seamus: I could prove it but I'd have to teach you advanced nano-cybernetics and cortical architecture first.
Buford: Or I can wait a century or two and see how your version works out.
