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.

Boney has raised a hand and is snapping his fingers, as one of his minions brings forth a portable chair.
Boney: Cantwell! A chair for our guest!
Boney: Rayche! Freshen up our drinks.
Boney: Have a seat, Bok. We got stuff to discuss.
Bok is seated close to Boney on his sofa, as one of the girls from the sofa is filling Bok's glass from a bottle.
Boney: Transportation is something we never seem to have enough of, isn't it?
Bok: My Dad said that's a deliberate policy, one way the Machines control us.
Boney: Yeah yeah, whatever. Let's not get into political talk. I'm a practical man.
Medium shot of Boney, making his pitch.
Boney: The rails are what they are. Fixed routes, fixed schedules, when they work right.
Boney: And if there ain't enough resources to keep 'em running right, we sure as feek ain't gonna see any new rails raised.
Boney: That leaves the road buggies.
Medium shot of Bok, listening, considering Boney's words.
Boney OP: Only the machines can build new roads and buggies, sure.
Boney: And there aren't really enough buggies available for everyone.
Bok: The machines give buggies to favored jakes as rewards for 'good citizenship.'
Boney: Of course. Even machines like to get their asses kissed.
Two-shot of Bok and Boney.
Boney: But anyway, most of those buggies sit around idle most of the time, at night and when their owners ain't using them, right?
Boney: What if we could make those buggies available to other users – who pay us – during those times?
Bok: Make them available HOW? They're tracked and monitored by the Machines.
Boney contemplates his glass, smirking. Bok regards his friend with a cocked eye.
Boney: I need your gadget guy to make something that can unlock the buggies. Leave the central computer to me.
Bok: Leave the central … what's that you're drinking, anyway?
Boney: Only the finest wheetshine, my friend. As you are, or I haven't taught you proper.
