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.

It's Eithne's turn to contribute.
Eithne: Well, there's a bigger issue with a warp drive, for us anyway.
Eithne: It presupposes a space-faring civilization that invented and uses it.
Eithne: And one that isn't us.
Three-shot, as they all ponder the implications.
Murphy: That would be a first, all right.
Murphy: In all our explorations, we've never discovered an existing alien technological civilization.
Murphy: Only a few ruins of some very ancient ones, who disappeared without a trace.
Shift focus to Hugo, keeping the other two in the shot.
Hugo: We've barely explored two percent of the known universe, but that still covers a lot of, well, territory.
Hugo: Which hypothesis is less likely: that someone has made a practical warp-drive, and that we've found a civilization capable of creating it ...
Hugo: Or the space/time distortion patterns are some sort of natural phenomenon?
Let's do an exterior shot of Causa Sui, just to break up the monotony.
Murphy (from ship): Well, Mr. Galvéz, if we think it's aliens, then our first order of business should be to take Eithne home before we investigate further.
Eithne (from ship): LIKE HELL!!
Back in the control room, Eithne squares off against Murphy, who is trying to placate her.
Eithne: YOU WILL NOT DITCH ME NOW!
Murphy: Honey, we're not 'ditching' you.
Murphy: But sapient aliens could be far more dangerous than even a hypernova.
Eithne stands her ground. Murphy solicits aid from Hugo, who refuses to jump in.
Eithne: And also far more interesting!
Murphy: Hugo, can you reason with her?
Hugo: Oh, she's right, aliens are far more interesting than a hypernova.
