The year is 2028. Dr. Clarrah Voyant and Dr Tony Mica [the Harbingers] are experiencing the worst cataclysm known to transhumankind. They work for the Department of Commiseration, an organization formed after the fall of the Empire.

Their job is to study and monitor the laughter levels of the humanoid population. Knowing that the people are depressed, they are searching for the entertainment that will accompany them on their first space shuttle voyage to Proxima b, the only [likely habitable] planet in the Proxima Centauri system.
