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.
In the Castle Hodge-Podge reception room, Seamus and Nicole continue their interview.
Seamus: But enough about us, let me tell you about the project I need you to help with.
Seamus: I'm running an experiment to help me refine our knowledge of quantum vibremonics.
Nicole looks a bit crestfallen.
Nicole: Quantum vibremonics? Um, I do have a physics background but that's a highly advanced field. I'm afraid I don't know anything about it.
Seamus flashes a toothy grin.
Seamus: The last thing I need is another so-called 'expert' second-guessing what I'm doing.
Nicole brightens and Seamus explains.
Seamus: I need someone competent to help me use some equipment and a quick enough study to learn what she needs to along the way.
Seamus indicates a viewscreen on the far wall, which now displays a not-to-scale diagram of the Sol System, with a bright line indicating a route running from planet to planet.
Seamus: Also, you should travel well – we'll be visiting Mercury, Venus, Luna, Mars, Vesta, Europa, and Titan.
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, who has brightened considerably.
Seamus: What do you think?
Nicole: I think this is just the adventure I've been looking for.
Seamus scratches his nose thoughtfully.
Seamus: Adventure. Well, yes, I suppose.
Seamus: There is one other thing ...
Medium close-up on Nicole, her smile transforming into a grimmace.
Seamus (OP): You'll need to pilot a Helio-flyer under the Solar Corona, and drop an explosive package.
Seamus: Can you pilot a Helio-flyer?
