Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.

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.
Diana is sitting on a stool in front of something that looks like it should be a telecom station, with a console and large viewscreen. But she's sitting facing away (towards us) in a classic lotus position, eyes closed. A psychedelic graphic on the viewscreen frames her head and shoulders.
Caption: Gyeon-hoon had cautioned me about communications concerning hacking.
Caption: At Roaz's house I was able to establish a super-duper-secure line to Zander, and feed him some names to look for:
Caption: Older, Belbenoit, and 'Château Périlleux.'
Diana and Zander are together in a 'cyberspace' frame similar to their previous contact. Diana is still 'sitting' in a more relaxed pose. Zander is reclined.
Diana: Also, any employee of Smith & Holder who had been connected to RPLD.
Zander: Wow. You want me to hack into one of the biggest security agencies in the City?
Zander: I will have to be really careful. This will take time.
Another view of Zander and Diana.
Diana: Time is something we don't have a lot of.
Zander: Besides, would they even have that sort of information?
Diana: Like you said, they're a security agency. They'd damn well better vet their employees thoroughly, regarding associations.
In realspace, we can see Zander reclining in his workstation chair, eyes closed. Looking a bit irked. In the background we can see someone silhouetted at another work station.
Zander (thoughtsend): I suppose so. I wonder how much crap I'll need to sort through.
Diana (thoughtsend): Background checks on people who can count their years in triple digits, can go deep.
