Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
Establishing shot of the Planet Shārén. Artificial structures overgrow half the surface, like a fungus. The rest is brownish ocean. Layered over are dull-yellowish clouds.
Caption: The planet Shārén resides in the galaxy once known as M74 but was renamed 'Eomeona' by its early human settlers.
Caption: Nearly 400 years later, the planet is home to almost 200 million persons.
Zoomed in on a complex of towers, flying bridges, etc.
Caption: It is also home to the Intergalactic Council, a body of delegates from a dozen cartels, guilds, and planetary baronies from across more than 100 galaxies .
Voice from tower: This is completely unacceptable.
Same voice: You promised the legation would be operational seven days ago.
Trudeau (from tower): The Novo Paoloans have been more obstructionist than we anticipated.
Inside a large office. Greta Heidelberg sits behind a large desk, and a somewhat chastened Marlon Trudeau stands before him.
Trudeau: However, the … ah … events of three days ago has pushed public opinion and the Pillars in the direction we hoped.
Trudeau: But we have now secured a location and local contractors are assembling the main building.
Caption 1: Marlon Trudeau, IntelAgency Sub-chief
Caption 2: Greta Heidelberg, Assistant Intel Minister for the Intergalactic Council.
Closer 2-shot on Trudeau and Heidelberg
Heidelberg: Local contractors? I hope you're supervising them closely.
Trudeau: Montanha-Flores is supervising. And he is a most diligent supervisor.
Heidelberg: Hmph. Mordy is most diligent at feathering his own nest.
