Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
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.
Present-Murphy narrates from a cameo. Ralf and Eithne are at their stations in the cock-pit.
Murphy: The next 572 kiloseconds went by quickly for Eithne and Ralf, as they busily worked to make their modifications to the cruiser. Finally:
Ralf: All systems are at full-ready.
Eithne: Excellent. Engaging thrusters now ...
Same shot, now the room is dark, with only a few lights showing.
Eithne (in Portanglish): Fijo da puta!
A voice blares from their comm speakers. Ralf and Eithne express shock.
Voice: This is the C.S.S. Justice! We have rendered your stolen craft inoperable!
Voice: Stand down and prepare to be boarded!
The ship's lights come back on and Eithne looks like she's concentrating hard.
Ralf: We're … wait! We have control back? How ...
Eithne: I'll be damned if I let those arse-faces capture me again.
Exterior view of the Ha'arokk racing through the bay.
Ralf: Careful! You nearly hit that pylon!
Eithne: Don't distract me right now, Ralf.
Eithne: I've got one more stunt to pull off.
As the Ha'arokk approaches the exit, they see the Community starship outside waiting for them.
Ralf: Holy Kramp!
Eithne: Don't stress.
The Ha'arokk streaks past the C.S.S. Justice as other ships nearby begin firing on it.
Eithne (from Ha'arokk): I traced back their signal and powered them down.
Eithne: Our friends will take care of them for us.
