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.

Cut to the drawing room at the Po estate. Three-shot of Tong, Peng-Bo, and Seamus. Peng-Bo, facing the holoscreen, is delivering his response to the shareholder's questions.
Peng-Bo: With regard to whether I am purchasing on my own account, or for HuoJinGong, please be assured that this is for my own account only.
Peng-Bo: I will transmit my bank information to verify that I have funds on an account in my own name.
Medium close-up of Peng-Bo.
Peng-Bo: With regard to your proposed pledge to your non-aggression principle, I'm afraid I must decline.
Peng-Bo: My responsibilities as a Divisional Director preclude taking such a sweeping oath.
Peng-Bo: I'm sure you understand.
Two-shot of Tong and Peng-Bo. Tong is looking thoughtfully at Peng-Bo as the latter continues speaking.
Peng-Bo: With regard to the ... difficult past episodes which Dr. Diamondi references, well ...
Peng-Bo: I view them as learning experiences, and I believe that I am a much better steward of both my own and HuoJinGong's resources as a result.
Two-shot of Peng-Bo and Seamus, with the holoscreen between them. Peng-Bo holds his arms wide with palms upward in a gesture of humility. Seamus is looking rather skeptical.
Peng-Bo: After all, who among us can say that one may dare to accomplish things without making mistakes along the way?
Peng-Bo: I ask for your understanding, and pledge that I will be a cooperative and honorable member of this group.
Medium close-up on Peng-Bo, looking as virtuously humble as he can manage.
Peng-Bo: Thank you for your time.
Peng-Bo: End Transmission.
Peng-Bo's expression darkens as he turns to look at Seamus.
Looking past Peng-Bo at Seamus.
Peng-Bo: How do you think they will respond?
Seamus: I would rather not forecast their responses. They might surprise me.
Two-shot of Peng-Bo and Seamus.
Peng-Bo: I find your response ... unhelpful.
Seamus: Be that as it may, I will say that your plea was the best you could possibly have made, given the situation.
Two-shot of Tong and Peng-Bo. They are exchanging glances. Tong looks worried.
Peng-Bo: Then we shall await their replies.
Peng-Bo: And let us hope those replies do not result in ... any unpleasantness.
