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.

Establishing shot: Hyperion, from space. We can just see Cissonius arcing in for a landing, looking tiny in the scale.
Caption: The Saturnine moon Hyperion.
Caption: Discovered in 109 B.S.A (1848 C.E.), his unique characteristics discovered by the Cassini probe 158 years later.
Caption: Hyperion is a gigantic, dusty, dirty ball of ice.
A closer-in shot of the moon featuring a cluster of its jagged-edged, deep craters. One crater has something of a plateau next to it, and near the edge of that crater we can see an artificial structure. The structure appears to have spider-like legs reaching out in all directions to anchor itself in the ice.
Caption: Bond-Lassel Station is owned and operated by Lewis & Canter JSC, based in L-5 City.
Caption: The station collects scientific data concerning both Hyperion and the outer reaches of Saturn's trans-Titan space. An associated orbital observatory studies distant Kuyper Belt objects.
Inside the ship-bay, the passengers of the Cissonius disembark onto extended causeway. We see some other ships berthed nearby.
Caption: Because of this station, Muc Ar Foulain, L-5 City's mercorp agency, claims Hyperion as protected under its laws.
Caption: The claim is disputed but at present no other System power has felt inclined to press the issue.
Three-shot of Murphy, Nicole and Seamus walking along the causeway. Something to the side has caught Nicole's eye and she is glancing questioningly at it.
Caption: Of course, political situations can sometimes change overnight.
