Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

The girls enter a large room filled with high-tech equipment. Nicole looks around in wonder.
Nicole: Wow! This all looks … state-of-the-art.
Murphy: Well, as of five years ago. I'll be making some mods and upgrades as we go along.
Nicole glances up at a nearby monitor, full of graphs and charts.
Nicole: So we can access the Network from here?
Murphy: Yes – this system uses the same distributed-node technology that Hernandez and his pirate/rebels were using.
Nicole and Murphy stand before a console.
Murphy: First things first: We need to dump the data we've collected from the various recording stations we've … you and Seamus have visited into this collator.
Nicole: Easy as pie.
Nicole is seated at the console, with Murphy standing behind – she has two fingers pointed to her temple. Nicole has her hands laying flat on the input tablet before her.
Murphy: In a few moments the system will work out the quantum vibramonic constant for this universe, to the 24th significant digit ...
The girls look at the monitor before them. It shows the number: 1.618033988749894848204582
Nicole: Easy as pi?
Nicole: I should have said, 'easy as phi.'
Medium closeup on the girls as they gaze up at the monitor. Nicole has two fingers pressed to a temple.
Murphy: The golden mean? Not quite. The last digit is off by two.
Nicole: Huh, you're right. A 5 instead of a 7, rounded.
Nicole is intrigued, and Murphy is dismissive.
Nicole: Strange, but interesting.
Murphy: Strange, but purely coincidental.
Murphy turns away from the console, Nicole turns in her chair.
Murphy: We have the data we need. Let's begin designing the prototype.
Nicole: Can I have breakfast first? I haven't eaten in 18 weeks.
