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.
Cut to: Monty's lab at the Roaz mansion. Diana and Wook are entering the room through a doorway in the middle-ground left, Monty (Panther) is at a console in the foreground right.
Caption: Even packed up, the 'chateau' was too big to fit in our flyer, so I had it 'hopped' to Alyss' mansion. Wook and I got over there as fast as we could in the flyer.
Diana: Monty! We got here as quick as we could.
Monty: Oh! Well, I've finished the examination. Time for a break.
Three-shot of Diana, Wook, Monty. Diana is looking exasperated.
Caption: I knew Monty was joking. He never took breaks.
Diana: Oh, come on. We didn't take that long.
Monty: It would have been here a lot sooner if you had hopped-in along with this model of a hyper-cubexahedron.
Diana: A hyper-whozit?
Now we can see the chateau-model in its closed-up mode, suspended in a null-grav field nearby.
Monty: A hyper-cubexahedron. You've heard of hyper-cubes, right?
Monty: That's a cube extended into four dimensions.
Monty: This is a hexagon extended into four dimensions. Sort of.
Back to three-shot. Diana is looking pained.
Diana: Four dimensions … unh. I'm getting a headache.
Monty: You see? You're just really headache-prone. Stop blaming the hoppers.
Diana: Now, it's worse.
