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 back to deCastries' office, where deCastries is confronting the image of Alyss.
Alyss: I've placed an Oresme shield around your building, so there'll be no sneaking her out via Displacer.
DeCastries: This is OUTRAGEOUS! Property rights are sacrosanct in this city!
Different angle on Alyss and DeCastries. We can see Alyss' battle-cruiser outside his window.
Alyss: So are sapient lives, Claude.
Alyss: Now, do you want to do this the easy way, or the hard way?
Outside the DeCastries building, several new ships pop into position between Alyss' armada and the building, each of them oriented towards the armada.
DeCastries (from buidling): For me, this is the easy way.
DeCastries: Now, back off before things get bloody.
On the command deck of Alyss' ship, the Eva Jeanne, Alyss grins an evil grin.
Alyss: You poor sap, you really don't know who you're dealing with, do you?
DeCastries (elect): Er, aren't you Alyss Roaz?
