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.
Cut to: A parlor, where Stauder and Acharya are visiting Kāng Min-Chèng.
Caption: Sometime later, a visit to Kāng Min-Chèng, head of the city defense corps, Demônios de Combate:
Kāng: So you want to organize a defensive system, but a non-military one?
Stauder: Let me put it this way ...
Same scene new angle
Stauder: You're lived here for more than two centuries.
Stauder: Do you think most of the people in this city are cut out for military life?
Kāng: Sadly, no. Most of us resist regimentation, either overtly or covertly.
Acharya and Kāng
Acharya: We want to draw in as broad a range of people as possible, so that everyone who wants to help defend the city can do so in a meaningful way, with whatever skills they can bring.
Kāng: So, an auxiliary, then. There are numerous precedents for this.
Stauder, Acharya, and Kāng
Archarya: Well, that's great! We won't have to re-invent the wheel.
Kāng: Unfortunately auxiliaries fell out of fashion almost five centuries ago.
Stauder: Do we look like people who care about what's fashionable?
