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
Murphy, now wearing skingloves, is holding the magnetic resonance scanner over the corpse's head. As Nicole looks on.
Murphy: Well, there is a blockage in the basal artery.
Nicole: Ah, they were right after all. Let's get out of here.
Murphy hands Nicole a device that looks like a large syringe, but with a 40 cm long, thin plastic tube at the business end and a couple of wheels at the other end. Nicole is also wearing the skingloves.
Murphy: Not so fast. We need to get a sample of the blocking material.
Murphy: Here, take this and run the tube into her left nostril.
Murphy holds the scanner over the corpse's head, while Nicole manipulates the little wheels on the syringe – looking very uncomfortable about it.
Murphy: Use the wheels to guide the probe through the nasal passage and into the meninges.
Murphy: Straight .. now a bit left … a bit downward … now to the right … that's it.
Murphy and Nicole continue working with the sampler syringe. Nicole is looking more and more distressed.
Murphy: Okay, at this point you'll need to use the micro-cutter. There's a red button next to the left wheel.
Murphy: A little further …
Nicole: There's blood coming out her nose!
Murphy and Nicole continue this process, Nicole looking like she wants to crawl out of her own skin.
Murphy: That's to be expected.
Murphy: Okay, stop. You're at the blockage.
Murphy: Now, gently pull the back-stopper to draw the material into the probe.
Murphy and Nicole. Nicole is looking even more distressed.
Murphy: Well done! Now, slowly withdraw the probe, out the way you came.
Nicole: Eeeeee. Blood everywhere, everywhere.
With some relief, Nicole hands the bloody syringe over to Murphy.
Murphy: Okay, now to use the molecular spec-analyzer ...
Nicole: Thank goddard this is over …
Murphy: Oh, we're not done yet. If this is what I think it is we'll have to take more samples.
Same shot, but now Nicole is no longer visible. Murphy looks down at where Nicole has slumped.
Murphy: Okay, you can take a break for a few minutes.
Nicole (OP): You're too kind.
