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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
At the end of the pressurized gangway, Murphy and Nicole climb into the front pair of seats in a 4-seater cockpit.
Murphy: They should have enough lead-time now to reach the rendezvous.
Nicole: Feels kind of odd that we'll be getting there in less than an hour.

Murphy: Most of the time will be spent getting clear of Chaos, then adjusting vectors, then the final approach to PersiphaŽ.
Nicole: Even though I've been to two other star systems and back now, it still feels weird going halfway across our own solar system in the wink of an eye.
A different spacecraft is near an oblong moonlet, with crescent Jupiter in the background.
Maureen: We're in the lee of PersiphaŽ, dropping the EM shield.
Maureen: No indication we've been followed, or tracked.
Li: Let's hope not.
In the cockpit, Maureen and Li.
Maureen: Yeah, it won't be long before the EM shield becomes obsolete as a cloak.
Maureen: It's little use against the improved mass detectors.
Li: True enough. We're becoming the victims of our own success.
