Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
Exterior shot of the Dejah Thoris, rocketing through space.
Caption: Aboard the Dejah Thoris, bound for Luna.
Nicole (from ship): This is zero magnification?
Seamus (from ship): I believe it is.
Another shot of space, focus is on two bright points close together, in the center of the field. We see Seamus' hand pointing at them.
Seamus: We're a third of the way there now.
Seamus: Terra and Luna can now be seen as two separate objects.
Establishing shot of Seamus and Nicole, seated at a small table. The wall beyond them is a wall-screen, showing a real-time view of space ahead of them.
Seamus: In a couple more days we'll be able to see them as discs rather than points of light.
Nicole: I've been thinking of going out to one of the lounges after dinner.
Looking past Nicole at Seamus, who brushes a lock of his hair away from his eye with a finger.
Seamus: Good. You need to learn how to deal with your situation, rather than ...
Seamus: Ffft. Stupid curls.
Nicole: If your hair bothers you why don't you cut it?
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus
Seamus: I need to find an anesthesiologist I can trust first.
Nicole: An anesthesiologist?
Two-shot of Seamus and Nicole, who's looking a bit disgusted.
Seamus: My botched rejuvenation has presented many odd problems, besides my giantism.
Seamus: For example, I can fart at will.
Medium close-up of Seamus, again brushing a lock out of his eye.
Seamus: But specific to your question, my scalp hair has, well, mutated.
Seamus: Each strand has a single, long nerve growing in the center.
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, who looks incredulous.
Nicole: You mean your hair hurts?
Seamus: Only when I try to cut it.
