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.
Arb Andrews: Well, it's already past the 10-hour, time for lunch. At least, for those of us who eat lunch.
Arb Asandini: Recess is called for 30 minutes.
Arb Feingold: No doubt both counsels will want to confer privately with their clients, outside this q-wave shielded chamber.
In a corridor, Miller huddles with deCastries, Belbenoit, Kempadoo, and Mitch. All are thought-sending.
Miller (angrily to Belbenoit): Why in the flaming flark didn't you tell me you'd refused Hayami's model of the Château?
Belbenoit (looking at Mitch): Because I didn't know. Mitch?
Mitch: Hey, don't look at me. I wasn't in charge of the investigation.
DeCastries: Then who was?
Same shot. Mitch looks defiant, the others confused.
Mitch: That was Paul Radoj … you know, the guy who disappeared after his flat was fire-bombed?
Mitch: And he did mention the model in his report. The one that Belbenoit here edited to omit anything that could be traced back to … the plan.
Belbenoit (to Miller): Why in hell did you ask that woman a question you didn't know the answer to?
Same shot. Now Miller looks embarrassed and the others are glaring at him.
Miller: Because your notes said you didn't think she was forthcoming.
Miller: I assumed that meant she had hidden the model from you. I was trying to build a narrative ...
DeCastries: You mean like when I assumed you were a competent advogado?
