Murphy and Hugo (the "tinman" version of Seamus) retun to find Nichole/Alyss adjusting to her new life, and have quite a tale of adventure to tell themselves. Having been away several years on a mapping mission, they too were revived in new bodies from events they have no memory or record of.

In a hurry to find out what happened, Hugo's young great-great-great-great-great-great-grand-daughter, was tasked with managing their revival, and during her free time, built them a new star ship.

Taking a young, inexperienced girl on a dangerous quest seems like a pretty bad idea. Or maybe it's just the right idea for the job.

But things get turned around after he meets the mysterious Alyss Roaz.

Five hundred years in the future, humans will have spread across the Solar System, establishing thriving colonies on many worlds, moons, and planetoids, and transforming themselves as they adapt to new environments. But humanity has not yet ventured to the stars for two reasons: lack of a practical faster-than-light drive, and the fact that dark matter has made interstellar space more difficult to navigate than previously thought.

But one mad scientist, Dr. Seamus O Murchada, has a theory he believes will open a new frontier. And to prove it, he sets off with his sparky young assistant, Nicole Oresme, on a tour through the Solar System, exploring the strange new human cultures on the settled worlds, making new friends, dealing with enemies, and solving the riddle that is "quantum vibremonics."

The near future sci-fi tales of humanity's expansion into the frontiers of the solar system. Liberated from traditional power structures, people living in the frontier are free to develop new customs and rules as may suit them, as born out in these tales of their struggle to survive and thrive in the harshest environments while enduring the pains of independence from mother Terra.

To avoid being "sent to the iridium mines on Titan" they must themselves travel 75 years into the past, a dark and barbarous age, to retrieve the gadget. But that past holds a secret which will change all of their lives...

Tympani can terrorize.
