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.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.
Li, Nicole, Murphy and Maureen sit around a larger round table that has a holo-display in its surface. They're looking at a diagram of the Móu Gòu Kòu Shèshī, projected in three dimensions.
Caption: Back at the lab on 19521 Chaos:
Li: So this is our target? How did you get this layout?
Li, Nicole and Murphy.
Murphy: Yes, and it wasn't easy. I've been spending several tendays peeling back their subnet security.
Li: How confident are you where Seamus is located, and whether he's still alive?
Murphy: I'm more confident that he's still alive than his exact location …
Cut to: High in the mountains near Móu Gòu Kòu, the runabout pops explosively into the air and streaks across the sky. Murphy is in a cameo.
Murphy: When I'm close enough to Seamus I can detect him through … a private channel we have.
Murphy: So I took the runabout through a short run in the skies about 50 klicks from the facility.
Back to the conference table. Maureen and Li are looking unhappy.
Maureen: I'll bet that attracted a lot of attention.
Murphy: I used a vector pointed mostly tangential to the facility, the area is remote and I was only there eight seconds.
Murphy: Long enough to get my confirmation.
