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.

Ricky, Lucy and Li in Ricky’s office. Ricky is pouring some drinks from a bottle that has materialized on the small table next to his seat
Ricky: I hope you’re getting paid a million Moebits for this one. And your life insurance is up-to-date.
Li: Let me put it this way … this is about honor, not money.
Ricky drops his casual demanor, now Lucy pipes up
Ricky: Oh shit, Jesús, I warned you about doing jobs for honor.
Lucy: Now you wanna be honorable?
Now Li is looking dead serious, as he leans forward.
Li: I have never cheated a client or reneged or failed to deliver on a contract.
Lucy: You may be honest in business but personally you ...
Li: And I never ‘led you on,’ either! That was all in your head.
Ricky looks thoughtful.
Ricky: Let it rest, Lucy.
Ricky: But Jesús: ‘deliver on a contract?’ You were supposed to be Montoya’s security?
Li (OP): I was supposed to shadow him, only make my presence known if he got into trouble.
Focus on Li, looking somewhat ashamed.
Li: I followed him through nine different worlds as he chased one lead after another.
Li: But then I was separated from him at a critical time, and, well ...
Li: … As you said, you saw the video.
Ricky, Li, and even Lucy raise their glasses.
Ricky: Albert Montoya was a very good man. And I lost several friends in El Gran Raio.
Ricky: I – no, we – will help you find that bitch Zondra Quirós.
Lucy: Well yeah I lost friends, too. Just don't tell Ethel.
