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.

Continue the scene. Murphy vs Hugo as Eithne looks on.
Murphy: That technology requires insane amounts of energy!
Murphy: Not to mention, the energy release when a ship drops the field could crack a moon in half.
Murphy: Not to mention problems with Hawking radiation, causality violation, and the need for 'exotic matter' to make it all work.
Hugo ponders the implications.
Hugo: You are correct, of course.
Hugo: While the energy-momentum tensor theory was proved in the laboratory, no one was able to translate that into a practical faster-than-light drive.
Hugo: Even my own – that is, Seamus O'Murchadha's – gravity drive, derived from that effect, could not get around the light-speed barrier.
Three-shot, focusing on Hugo.
Hugo: At any rate, efforts to create a space-warp were made moot when Nicole Oresme invented the Discontinuous Displacement Drive.
Eithne: You mean, The Murphy Drive?
Murphy: He never liked giving me any of the credit for it.
