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.
The thugs and hooligans, plus Dong and his nieces, are gathered around Diana in the living room as she addresses them.
Caption: So a few minutes later, as I promised Dong:
Diana: As Senhor Gyeon-Hoon explained, my investigations have, well, annoyed certain powerful interests.
Diana: I am hoping that I can avoid any difficulties more severe than I've dealt with so far.
Diana: However, if things go badly I may have need of more protection than a pair of skilled body-guards can offer.
Diana: And if that happens I would want to call on you for assistance.
One of the thugs has a question.
Thug: And what are you offering to pay us? Can you pay us?
Diana: I … my research project has a sponsor who will cover my reasonable expenses.
Diana: As to how much, well …
Diana smiles, turns to gesture towards Dong, who gives her a rueful look.
Diana: I will leave it to Senhor Gyeon-Hoon to negotiate rates with you.
Diana: I have full confidence in his knowledge and ability to arrange a fair deal.
Caption: Well, tossing the potato to Dong was only fair, inasmuch has he'd pretty well ambushed me.
