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.
Jerome Falstaff reports from a revised Notícias Inacreditável set, designed to look something like a redoubt.
Jerome: While the local Displacer Net is gone, Libérateurs continue their expansion across the city, dispatched from troop carriers using their own on-board Displacer Engines.
Scene in a courtyard where invaders emerge from small troop carriers, and the locals flee before them
Jerome (from cameo): Some of the expansions have been peaceful, as citizens simply responded by running and hiding.
A squad of Libérateurs stands in the middle of an empty concourse
Jerome: The Libérateurs find themselves in deserted common areas, with people as well as goods and services sealed behind locked doors and Oresme shields.
In a different concourse, a squad of Libérateurs marches along, unaware of armed citizens lying in wait.
Jerome: In other cases, the arrivals of the invaders produced different results.
Libérateurs and citizens (now more evenly matched than previously) engage in an intense fire-fight.
Jerome: A citizen militia, organized as Resposta Ciudadana, has begun offering armed resistance.
Back to the studio:
Jerome: But no matter how many Libératurs the resistors manage to stop, and kill, the supply of new invaders seems inexhaustible.
Jerome: Could the best efforts of the Pillars, their ‘second string,’ and the militia not be enough to save the city?
