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.

On board the alien starship, Hugo continues the tour guided by Captain Pbbbbbbbt and the entourage. They look in on a room full of aliens, seated in groups at long tables. There is a distinct division between the females and the males.
CP: This is one of three meal halls.
CP: It is shared by officers and non-coms. The second is also shared.
CP: A third, much smaller, is for senior officers and special guests only.
Hugo looks out over the room, with CP beside him.
Hugo: The room is shared but ...
Hugo: Well, if I'm correct about your gender morphology, there isn't much mixing between the females and the males in this shared space.
Medium shot of Hugo, CP and the entourage.
CP: Discipline requires limiting social interaction between the officers and the non-coms.
Hugo: You mean, between the female officers and the male non-coms.
CP: We all eat the same food. We are quite progressive, you know.
Hugo and the entourage continue down a corridor.
Hugo: Does this … social arrangement reflect your society in general?
CP: It is the natural way of things. Females are more intelligent; males are physically stronger.
CP: By emphasizing the strengths of each gender we maximize fulfillment for all.
Hugo falls silent and CP notices the change in his demeanor.
CP: I am sorry, did I use words not in your translator matrix?
CP: I am not sure how I can express the concept more simply.
The group continues down the corridor. Hugo has a dark expression.
Hugo: Oh no, I understand your words.
Hugo: It's your concept I'm having difficulty with.
CP: I understand that you are modeled on the males of your species, so this is to be expected.
