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 destruction of Mecca would, he reasoned, destroy the foundation of Islam and the faith of its adherents.
Theo at the Israeli control center, looking suspicious.
Caption: 'The other cities were included in Farnsworth's scheme because they might become alternative locations for the hajj.
