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: Aunt Dorothy's bedroom. Dorothy is placing items in a suitcase laid open on the bed. Bok is standing next to her.
Bok: We're moving?
Dorothy: Accommodations has assigned us a larger apartment, so we have room for your father, and the things he needs.
Bok: So, get your things together. We're going to the new place this evening.
Dorothy is closing the lid to her suitcase. She looks quite contented. Bok looks troubled.
Bok: New place? Where?
Dorothy: Oh, not far. It's in this tower, but in a different section.
Dorothy: It was recently renovated, I'm told. It should be quite nice once we're in.
Dorothy lays another, smaller suitcase atop the one she just closed. Bok is looking annoyed.
Bok: So now we have to move. What a pain in the ass.
Dorothy: Bolivar, when you're older, you'll understand how lucky we are.
Dorothy: Our society cares for us, takes care of our needs.
Bok has his arms crossed in defiance. Now Dorothy, putting more stuff in the smaller suitcase, is getting agitated.
Bok: Oh, sure, after it steals our brains.
Dorothy: Hush, child! What happened to your father …
Dorothy: … must have been necessary to maintain the social order.
Dorothy: Do you think Corrections does these things to be evil?
Bok begins to walk away, speaking through gritted teeth. Now Dorothy is getting angry – or is it fearful? She grabs his arm.
Bok: Corrections can get stuffed. The 'social order' can get stuffed.
Dorothy: Grow up, Bolivar! Do you want to go back to the old ways? The dog-eat-dog days when everyone competed for dominance over everyone else? When billions of people were sick and starving while a lucky few lived in luxury?
Bok pulls free of Dorothy's grasp.
Bok: Of course not. Do you think I'm stupid?
Bok: There has to be a better way than this. I don't know what it is, yet.
Bok: But I'm going to figure it out.
