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.
Cut to: Monty's lab at the Roaz mansion. Diana and Wook are entering the room through a doorway in the middle-ground left, Monty (Panther) is at a console in the foreground right.
Caption: Even packed up, the 'chateau' was too big to fit in our flyer, so I had it 'hopped' to Alyss' mansion. Wook and I got over there as fast as we could in the flyer.
Diana: Monty! We got here as quick as we could.
Monty: Oh! Well, I've finished the examination. Time for a break.
Three-shot of Diana, Wook, Monty. Diana is looking exasperated.
Caption: I knew Monty was joking. He never took breaks.
Diana: Oh, come on. We didn't take that long.
Monty: It would have been here a lot sooner if you had hopped-in along with this model of a hyper-cubexahedron.
Diana: A hyper-whozit?
Now we can see the chateau-model in its closed-up mode, suspended in a null-grav field nearby.
Monty: A hyper-cubexahedron. You've heard of hyper-cubes, right?
Monty: That's a cube extended into four dimensions.
Monty: This is a hexagon extended into four dimensions. Sort of.
Back to three-shot. Diana is looking pained.
Diana: Four dimensions … unh. I'm getting a headache.
Monty: You see? You're just really headache-prone. Stop blaming the hoppers.
Diana: Now, it's worse.
