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.

Nicole and Murphy are entering another room.
Nicole: So you're certain he's still there?
Murphy: No, not yet. That facility's sub-net is closely-guarded.
Murphy: But if I can get physically close enough I might be able to verify his presence using our private comm channel.
Nicole and Murphy are back at the designer screen.
Murphy: Rather ironic, he'd end up near Xi'an.
Nicole: Yeah. Your former home was near Xian Xin, on Huoxing.
Nicole: Do you miss the place?
Now Murphy pauses, looking reflective.
Murphy: There was much I enjoyed about my life there, and some I did not ...
Murphy: But I suppose I miss my Master Po more than anything. He was good and kind and brilliant. I admired him.
Murphy: He always made me feel that I was much more … than the decorative sex toy I was designed to be.
Nicole puts an arm around Murphy's shoulder and kisses her cheek. Murphy responds with a wry grin.
Nicole: Well, you are the best friend I've ever had; I hope that counts for something.
Murphy: Friend-with-benefits, you mean.
Nicole: Icing on the cake.
Murphy: What's a cake without icing?
