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.

Caption: The office of Director Chan Yuen-Lo:
Chief Ho (from inside): Thank you for seeing me, Director Chan.
Chan: Skip the pleasantries, Chief Ho. What is the situation?
Inside the office, Director Chan sits behind a very large desk, behind which is a decorated wall with a wide window in the center; the desk is flanked by eight monitor screens (backs to us). Ho stands in front of the desk, at attention.
Ho: This concerns the murder of the billionaire play-boy Ma Bo-Nu.
Ho: We ... suspect this was instigated by his cousin, Tong Xie-Po, co-heir to the Po Xu-ke estate.
Chan: What! How do you come to this conclusion?
Medium C/U on Ho:
Ho: Tong invited a foreigner, Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, to a formal party yesterday. Then, he drew O'Murchadha away from the main event into a private conference.
Ho: Meanwhile, O'Murchadha's secondaries were sent away, and Tong sent Ma to follow them, on the pretext of keeping track of their whereabouts.
Looking past Ho at Chan, looking back at his subordinate intently.
Ho: One of the secondaries was a femiform android, of course, and Ma had always been ... obsessed with them.
Ho: It was a trap -- Ma was lured into an alleyway, where a third employee of O'Murchadha's, a BeltApe, killed him with her bare hands.
