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.

In the galley, Murphy, Eithne and Hugo are seated around the table, conferencing.
Murphy: We've been invited to visit with officials on the planet Bbrrrbtpff below.
Murphy: At this point we must decide whether to get more involved with these people, or move on.
Shift focus to Hugo.
Hugo: On the plus side, they have technology which might be useful to us – this 'sub-space radio' of theirs, for example.
Hugo: And the related tech, the ability to scan for ships at thousands of gigameters without speed-of-light delays.
Hugo: On the minus side, they are a militaristic and gyno-dominant culture.
Murphy and Eithne both cross their arms, looking at Hugo.
Murphy: You find their gyno-dominance to be a problem?
Hugo: Only as combined with their statism.
Hugo: This makes them not only dangerous but also untrustworthy.
