Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
On a holoscreen, we see the image of Byron Tchaikovsky, a foppish streamer, mugging for the camera. The background is filled with the trademark 'BYRON' logo.
Byron: Good day, good day, my darlings! I'm Byron Tchaikovsky and I question everything!
Byron: Our question today is, has the venerable Smith & Holder Assurance agency gone off the rails? Jumped the shark? Lost its cool?
Byron is on the left side of the frame, filling the rest is an image of Diana as she was being medically treated at deClayre's mansion. She is naked under a sheet, her right arm laid bare to show the horrible broken fore-arm.
Byron: One of its agents, who we have recently identified, viciously assaulted a young refugee, Diana Martelli, while confronting her at her job.
On a broadcast set, we now see Byron seated in a tall chair next to Lorelei, also seated in a tall chair. Lorelei has been dolled up to look younger than before. The chairs are on a slightly raised platform.
Byron: She was able to flee the agent and found refuge with none other than Lorelei Wodenstar deClayre, who has become the girl's protector.
Caption: The way Bostwick dolled Lorelei up, she looked closer to 20 than 240.
Pull back farther to include a very uncomfortable-looking Diana sitting on another tall chair on the right of Lorelei. Her hair is waxed down, and her clothing makes her look like a tall 12-year-old.
Byron: Today we have Senhora deClayre with us in studio, and also the young Diana Martelli herself! May I call you Diana?
Diana: Uh, sure.
Caption: What that little fucker did to me, I will never forgive.
