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.
Now Seamus stands at the head table. Antigony remains seated, Johanna remains standing. We see the back of Murphy, and a bit of Nicole as she lays hands on Murphy's arm and shoulder.
Seamus: Be still, my dear Murphy. I know what I'm doing.
Seamus: Yes, I was Theophilus Farnsworth. And Benedito Fernandes, and Stanley Freeman.
Seamus from behind, speaking to the assembly who listen raptly.
Seamus: At 533 Terran years, I am also the oldest living person.
Seamus: And 462 years ago, in my madness, I unleashed an ungodly Hell on humankind.
Seamus: An act for which I've been quite rightly despised, and condemned.
Medium close-up on Seamus, looking tired.
Seamus: In the centuries since I have worked to the best of my abilities to make amends.
Seamus: I have given mankind technologies to help rebuild Terra and colonize new worlds.
Seamus: I have helped to liberate Luna, and the Belt, and establish the L-5 Station as a free and thriving space-city.
Seamus looks over at Johanna, who only stares back at him.
Seamus: But I suppose that despite all my works, I must at last face my victims – or at least their descendants and heirs.
Seamus: For considering what I've done, and why, I cannot gainsay anyone else's demand for retribution.
