To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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.

External view, Causa Sui appears a few hundred light years 'above' the galactic plane. The galactic core is to the left, and a hypernova is on the right, barely within one of the galactic arms.
Eithne (from ship): Is … is that a hypernova?
Hugo (from ship): Yes, it is. Pretty much as our observation at distance predicted.
Eithne, Murphy and Hugo in the control room.
Murphy: Is that the potential Wolf-Rayet collapsar you were so interested in?
Hugo: Indeed. Very unfortunate for any systems lined up along its rotational axis.
Eithne: Unfortunate how?
Murphy and Hugo.
Hugo: In the early seconds of its collapse, the collapsar emits gamma-ray jets that will effectively sterilize any planets within 500 light-years.
Murphy: Thank you for not bringing us in line with one of those, Hugo.
Hugo: We are 12,000 light-years away, a safe enough distance with our shielding. I may be mad, but I'm not stupid.
