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.
In the drawing room, Tong Xie-Po and Peng-Bo Shen confront Seamus.
Seamus: You will find I do not respond well to threats, Mr. Peng-Bo, no matter how delicately implied.
Peng-Bo: Threat? I think you misunderstand, no threat was intended.
Peng-Bo smiles an oily smile
Peng-Bo: All I ask is that you call for a vote on the shares transfer.
Peng-Bo: And of course I hope you will at least consider endorsing the action. For the benefit of your late friend's family, if nothing else.
Seamus leans back in his chair, arms crossed, still not looking happy.
Seamus: I will call for the vote, as you request.
Seamus: And as a courtesy to Po Xu-Ke's heirs I will not speak against the transfer.
Three-shot of Xie-Po, Peng-Bo, and Seamus. The latter two are staring daggers at one another while being superficially polite.
Seamus: Of course, the procedure will take a bit of time, as the shareholders are scattered throughout the system. Speed-of-light lag and all that.
Peng-Bo: Then please proceed without delay.
