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.
Bok is reporting the news on a livestream.
Bok: This just in: Mere moments after the first explosion, a SECOND blast has destroyed the Miguel Morrison Convention Center in Aroeira Sphere.
Bok: The Center was a mere 250 meters from Clínica do Renascimento, which also sustained some damage.
Bok speaks from an inset while the main panel shows medical workers scrambling over patients in a triage/first aid scene. We should be able to spot Otto among the workers.
Bok: Nonetheless, the Clínica is serving as a triage center for bombing victims, as medical teams work feverishly to save lives.
Bok continues, a stock 5-shot of the Five Pillars filling the background behind him.
Bok: Meanwhile negotiations with the Galactic Council continue in pursuit of a Security Treaty, as they're calling it.
Bok: I am told an agreement is coming 'very soon,' which might help us identify the shadowy group behind the attacks.
Closer on Bok, giving a wry grin.
Bok: What remains to be seen is, what will the cost of the Council's assistance come to?
Bok: Some sources suggest the I.C. Wants 'qualified immunity' for its employees working here, and suspending some privacy protections.
Bok: As if even the Pillars could enforce such changes.
