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
In a circular room, Seamus and Shen, with the security team fanned out around them, approach a kiosk with consoles on opposite sides.
Shen: You have all the relevant specifications and data?
Seamus: Of course. You have the funding?
Seamus and Shen stand on opposing sides of the kiosk, pulling out their personal Screens. The security team surrounds Shen, but one of them keeps his eyes on Seamus.
Shen: Of course. I will load it into the escrow account now.
Seamus: Likewise. So I've been wondering ... if they're disarmed, how will the commoners defend themselves against predators?
Seamus and Shen place their Screens, against the consoles.
Shen: That's what the peacekeepers are for.
Seamus: I was told the peacekeepers are for keeping the general peace and have no legal duty to defend commoners or their property. Is that not true?
Seamus and Shen, Shen starting to look irritated.
Shen: It is ... not practical for the peacekeepers to have such a legally-enforceable duty.
Shen: You ask a lot of questions, Dr. O'Murchadha.
Seamus: That's how I get answers, Mr. Peng-Bo.
