To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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.
In the Causa Sui control room, Murphy and Hugo and Captain Pbbbbbbbt, who is looking bewildered. The monitor screen is blank (what CP sees).
CP: This is your bridge? Where are your monitors?
Murphy: The monitors are set to transmit directly into our visual cortexes.
Murphy: Only we can see them.
Hugo and Murphy casting glances at one another, while CP continues looking around.
Hugo (thoughtsend): That's not exactly how it works, you know ...
Murphy (thoughtsend): Hush. I'm busy being clever.
Murphy (aloud): A security feature, to guard against hijacking.
CP faces Murphy. Hugo rolls his eyes.
CP: Very effective, it would seem.
CP : Although a hijacker both skilled and determined could find a way to override it, no?
Murphy: We have other counter-measures, of course. Which are, ah, classified.
CP: Of course.
