Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.

Alec: Who is this guy?
Shotah: That's Bolivar Clark. He's a journo. I guess he has good info connections.

Bok: All militia and emergency services are being mobilized to deal with the casualties.

Zander: De Sousa is the sphere where … Alyss Roaz used to live.
Otto: Diana! She, uh, … she blocked me. Can you reach her?

Zander: I … I can't! There's … there's not even a ping-back.
Zander: It's like … like she's gone.
