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
Back in cyberspace – Murphy continues gliding through an increasingly thick tangle of data lines.
Nicole (OP thoughtsend): Getting close?
Murphy (thoughtsend): Hush.
Murphy approaches something that looks like a medieval fortress made of Legos, beyond several other smaller structures.
Murphy (thought): Well, this looks promising.
Murphy (thought): Also, scary.
Murphy approaches a fortress wall at a low level, then skims cautiously up the side.
Murphy (thought): How do I get into this thing without being noticed?
Murphy peers through a crenel, at a guard/avatar (appearing slightly incongruously as a 21st-Century riot cop) walking away along the rampart.
Murphy (thought): Hmmmm.
Murphy steps through the crenel onto the rampart, simultaneously disguising herself as a guard.
Murphy (thought): This should work.
Murphy cautiously walks down an interior flight of steps.
Murphy (thought): So far so good.
Murphy walks through a room with a double-row of photographs on a wall labeled, 'Problems.' Some of them have red Xs stamped over them. One with an X is Nina Levin. Two more without an X are Nigel, Murphy, and Mike the asteroid wrangler (barely visible).
Murphy (thoughtsend): Uh-oh.
Murphy blunders into a room full of guards standing around. Several of them are turning to look at her.
Murphy: Uh … hi! Stomped on any good faces lately?
