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.
Greta and Mordy and the guards are just this side of a heavy security door, looking past the reader. Mordy looks prideful, Greta looks let-down.
Mordy: Well, here we are, the end of the rainbow.
Mordy: What do you think?
Looking past Greta at what appears to be a rather mundane clam-shell bay door, with a lot of conduits and lights and monitors on each flank. A clutch of technicians are at the monitor panels.
Greta: It's a bit less than I expected.
Greta: It looks like a high-tech barn door.
Shoe a cutaway view of the IC 'Embassy' building showing the Rainbow construction taking up a large portion of the interior main section. In an inset, Greta and Mordy.
Mordy: Ah. Well, this is the output section. Most of the works occupy the next four floors below this one.
Mordy: It takes up about a quarter of the main building's volume.
A technician has approached Mordy. He's gazing toward the bay door expectantly.
Tech: Sir, all the systems are on-line and functioning at 100 percent.
Tech: We can start the test whenever you're ready.
Mordy: Then by all means, démarrez-le.
