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.

The view of Aldrinopolis from 10 miles up – nestled in Crater Taruntius, a large, old, fairly shallow crater flanked by low mountains, covered with a currently-transparent dome, through which the towers of the central city can be prominently seen.
Caption: Aldrinopolis, population 1.5 million, resides in the 56-km-wide Crater Taruntius, under a plasmo-graphene dome which contains its air at a comfortable pressure and temperature.
A schematic view of the same city and crater, showing connecting underground transportation lines, and the spaceport just outside the crater.
Caption: The city is an important trade center for other, smaller communities in the region, and is home to OmegaTek, Jones-Hardesty Spacewrights, and the second-busiest spaceport on Luna.
The shuttle touches down on the tarmac near a spaceport terminal.
