Story & Art: Scott Bieser - 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.

Inside the shuttle, Nicole, the Pilot and Seamus are all tense.
Nicole: Bogey's at 45 klicks, closing at 900 meters per second
Pilot: How long can you maintain that shield?
Seamus: With its own power-pack, maybe an hour.
External view of the shuttle in its silvery cocoon, still hounded by the laser.
Seamus: But I don't think we're going to need it that long.
Seamus: Our friends won't be so patient, and at their rate of approach they'll be right next to us in about a minute.
Pilot, looking at his display.
Pilot: Our attacker masses almost 150 tonnes. Big enough to swallow us. Or at least, grapple us.
Seamus: Then he will find his eyes are bigger than his stomach
Close shot on Seamus, gritting his teeth menacingly.
Seamus: I intend to give him a bellyache he won't forget.
