Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.

Cut to Bok delivering his own Las Noticías Indelicadas podcast. (The LNI logo appears in the frame) Bok is wearing a black armband.
Bok: … was destroyed in the assault. Alyss Roaz’ body has not been recovered but sources say she is presumed dead.
Bok: A few hours later, during a city-wide black-out, the IGC Legation disappeared.
Behind Bok, a shot of two Boudica Chen’s battleship fighting a swarm of IGC beetles.
Bok: Although some sporadic fighting continues, both sides seem to be pausing to assess the changed situation.
Behind Bok, an image of Sheldon Rico
Bok: The odd color of the outer sky has a lot of people spooked, and rumors are flying.
Bok: I managed to have a brief chat with Pillars advisor Sheldon Rico:
Rico: What we have to understand is that tyrants rely on two important tools: Lies and Fear.
Rico: The people who move to and thrive here are, mostly, clear-thinkers.
Rico: We must carefully evaluate what we hear, then proceed to resist confidently.
Cut to a later scene where Bok is walking through a concourse when Falstaff rolls up, puts a hand on Bok’s shoulder.
Caption: Not long afterward:
Falstaff: Hey Bok. Did you see my podcast?
Falstaff: What did you think?
Bok smacks Falstaff’s hand away
Bok continues walking past the stunned Flastaff.
Bok: That’s what I thought of it.
Bok: And stop calling me ‘Bok.’
Bok: We are no longer friends.
