A scientist stands before a techno-portal, holding a bottle of champagne. A small crowd watches and claps.
Scientist: With this new interdimensional conduit, we’ll be able to explore farther than ever before.

Space demon: You’ve meddled in forces you can’t possibly comprehend!
Scientist: Okay, I see the error of my ways!
The scientist holds a bottle of champagne next to a force field cage with the angry ethereal being trapped inside. A small crowd watches and claps.
Scientist: With my patented spirit summoner, we’ll be able to study energy-based life in detail.
