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.

Alyss: What about the refugees?
Bok: Well about two-thirds of them chose to stay on Zytemonde.

Hugo: I have grave doubts about that.
Hugo: Even the best-intentioned intelligence can be corrupted by the kind of power she has.

Hugo facepalms. Murphy and Alyss are amused. Bok is bewildered.
Hugo: Oh. My. Gourd. 'We just need the right overlord!'
Hugo: Will that old chestnut never die?
Bok: What's a chestnut?
Murphy, Alyss, Bok, Hugo, Monty in the lounge.
Murphy: He means it's a bad idea that's been repeated often in history.
Murphy: The problem with centralized power isn't so much who wields it.
Murphy: It's in the nature of power itself. It has a dynamic of its own.
Bok: But, Alyss ...
Alyss places her hand affectionately on Bok's cheek.
Alyss: It's okay, Bok. Hugo and Murphy make a valid point.
Alyss: It's an unprecedented situation, though.
Alyss: Perhaps we'll visit your world again someday, see how it's turned out.
Bok: Oz is my world, now.
Murphy, Alyss, Bok, Hugo
Murphy: He signed the Covenant shortly after returning here.
Alyss: I'm sure Oz is very exciting to you. I wonder how your father feels about it.
Bok: My father! I almost forgot!
