More On the Setting
Tommy and PJ takes place in the Galactic Age. The developing story goes alongside others relating to the evacuation of Venus and the terraforming effort there, as well as the colonization of Procyon 5. It makes reference to the common mode of long-range space travel, which employs huge deep-space liners that carry smaller short-range ships to their destination systems. It also reveals the legend of the Song of the Five Kings, which is supposed to activate latent DNA and grant special powers to help in time of need. The quest to find the parts of the song, which began in a story arc about Tommy's appendicitis, is still ongoing as of this writing.
