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.

Caption: 4,998 seconds later:
Murphy (cameo): We are now just a bit more than two klicks from the target, approaching at 12.5 meters per second.
Hugo (cameo): Perfect. Now scan out to 5 megameters in all directions.
In the control room, looking from behind Hugo and Murphy at the main monitor displaying the position of their target.
Hugo: Got it! It's … ah … not very large.
Murphy: Length 1.17 meters, mass 2.87 kilograms.
Murphy: At least we know what part of you this isn't.
Polyphemus pops into position near Hugo's older head.
Hugo: Look! On the road -- A head!
Murphy: Road? Hugo, what are you talking about?
Hugo: I don't get chances to use that joke often.
Exterior of Polyphemus in the near background, a mechanical arm telescopes out to grab the head.
Murphy: Let's hurry up and bring it aboard and then get the hell out of here.
Hugo: No arguments there.
