Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
A tense confrontation between Dong/Diana/Areum/Wook and The Mechanic and co.
Dong: If you intend to kill us, I would like to know the reason why.
Mechanic: That little friend of yours is carrying another tracker. My assistant scanned you all after you exited the flyer.
Diana is scandalized. Dong looks at her suspiciously. The Mechanic is adamant.
Diana: WHAT! No, that's ridiculous! I mean, I have defensive gadgets, but not ...
Mechanic: Hand over that coat. NOW.
Dong: I recommend you do as she says.
The Mechanic holds up the coat with one hand while her assistant scans it with her hand-held.
Caption: And so:
Assistant: It's not in the jacket. But I definitely got a ping on her.
Mechanic: Very well, then, scan her again, without the jacket.
Angle from above/behind the Assistant so we can see an image on her Screen that's an outline of Diana, as Diana herself appears in the middleground. We can see that her holo-projected shirt has bare arms. An icon appears over the outline's right forearm.
Assistant: Got it again. On her right forearm. About mid-way … wait.
Assistant: Filho da puta, it's inside her forearm!
Caption: I was too shocked to even say 'what!'
