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.

In a futuristic court room. The judge (middle-aged female) is not there in person but appears on a large monitor screen fixed high over an ersatz judge's bench. Buford, in a jail jumpsuit and shackles, stands before the bench, flanked by one female and two large 'normal' male uniformed guards.
