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.
Still in the shop, Albert and Ka are settling up, or trying to. Albert is dressed in more reasonable clothing. Beatrice is to one side
Ka: You look sharp! Now Beatrice needs her payment and funds for the … ah … math service.
Albert: Sure, but first ...
Albert: You promised to help me with … something.
Ka, Albert, Beatrice, who is now holding up a small screen towards Albert.
Ka: Settle this exchange and I'll tell you everything I know about Zondra.
Albert: That's the deal, and now Beatrice is a witness to the agreement.
Beatrice: Hey, I'm not a witness to merde. I sell clothing designs.
Ka and Albert stare steadily at one another, in a stand-off. Beatrice just rolls her eyes.
Albert grimly touches a finger to Beatrice's screen, transferring the funds.
Ka: You said she might be in trouble? How motivated are you to help her?
Albert: Motivated enough that if you swindle me you will find my reach is long and my sword is sharp.
Beatrice: Whether you're going to fight or fuck please take it outside.
