Sci-Fi Adventure Monday - Wednesday - Friday.
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, Nicole and Murphy stand inside the Weapons Shop of Escher -- a crazy, which-way-is-up place with display counters oriented in all directions, like the iconic M.C. Escher 'Relativity' drawing, only with ramps instead of steps. The trio looks around -- Seamus approvingly, Murphy curiously, Nicole confusedly.
Seamus: I see they've put in a new section for -- crossbows?
Our trio are approached by a shop clerk, a handsome middle-aged woman bearing the name-tag, 'Cathy.' She enters the frame from a different angle than that which the trio are standing.
Cathy: Greetings! May I help you find something?
Nicole: Gourd knows I'd need help finding my own ass in this place.
Cathy listens intently to Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: My associate is looking for an alternative to her zringer, something not subject to nullification fields.
Nicole: And easier to carry than a shovel.
Cathy is leading the trio through the store, walking across the variously-angled ramps and platforms
Cathy: I never thought of a shovel as being a weapon.
Nicole: I'm very effective with it, but I can't find one that'll fit in my belt-pack.
