Young Zed has been playing with his father’s wormhole generator. Flipping the wrong dial, he now finds himself stranded on a strangely advanced planet – sans generator – where the people do not look one another in the eye and do all of their speaking on portable devices they carry everywhere. They seem to have a machine similar to dad’s wormhole generator but he cannot get anyone’s attention to help him use it.
