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.

Close-up on Hugo.
Hugo: More than a century ago I discovered a transform constant within your Discontinuous Displacement equations which can be altered slightly to permit this.
Hugo: When transiting in space, one can also transit in time any distance up to that which light takes to cover that same distance in space. Or considerably less, as we did.
Hugo: I never shared this with anyone because I didn't see any use for it, until our recent adventure.
Hugo: This effect only works in one direction, mind you – 'Time's Arrow' remains un-molested and backwards time-travel is still beyond our grasp.
Three-shot of Alyss, Hugo, Murphy. Alyss and Hugo smiling, Murphy cocks a Spock-like eyebrow.
Alyss: Well, it's good to know becoming a 'Tin Man' doesn't have to cost one's creativity.
Hugo: I suspect our creativity comes from the random imperfections in our neural patterns which don't get engineered into artificial intelligence.
