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 a large conference hall, looking from the back to front, we see rows with several dozen people sitting in chairs, facing the front where we see sitting behind a table, to the left, Johanna, in the center, Antigone, and on the right, Seamus. There is a large viewscreen on the wall behind them. Antigone is speaking.
Antigone: I hereby convene this extraordinary hearing, in conformity with provisions of the Treaty of Tycho ...
Three-shot of Seamus, looking subdued in his Faraday helmet, Antigone, still speaking, and Johanna, wearing her poker face.
Antigone: It is alleged that Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, a resident of L-5 City, is in fact the infamous Theophilus Farnsworth, of West Terra, instigator of the Calamities.
Antigone: Dr. Johanna Diamondi so alleges, and seeks to extradite O'Murchadha to West Terra for trial.
Voice from off-panel: Objection!
Angle shot to include Murphy, who has stepped forward from the front row of the gallery.
Antigone: Murphy, advocate for O'Murchadha, is recognized. What is your basis?
Murphy: Thank you. If my client's accuser is to be considered on equal footing with my client, should she not also be required to wear a Faraday helmet?
Johanna is outraged, Antigone looks amused.
Johanna: That's ridiculous! Farnsworth's helmet is there for security reasons!
Antigone: And how good is our security here should I rule against you?
Antigone: Objection sustained. Dr. Diamondi, either you don a Faraday helmet of your own or remove O'Murchadha's.
