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

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.

Daskalov: Now, if Robin put these on correctly, I should just be able to lift the rest of this off, like so ...
Revers view to show Daskalov placing the remaining bandages in the tray Otto is holding. Otto's mouth is agape, his eyes saucers – he is clearly shocked by what he sees.
Daskalov: Now, after I've had a chance to ...
Daskalov: Otto, I told you this would be shocking. Do you need a bucket?
