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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
The meeting continues:
Kāng: So if if these defenders of yours aren't regimented as a military, how are they to be organized?
Acharya: By function, and according to depth of involvement.
Acharya: The department involving combat operations is what we need to coordinate with your own agency.
Acharya: We will recruit fighters, field support crews, and infrastructure monitors.
Acharya: We will also have levels of commitment ranging from all-out 'gung-ho' to 'Let me circle back to that.'
Kāng is giving Acharya the side-eye
Kāng: This sounds like as much of a hinderance as a help.
Stauder: We can deal with the … well, I'd call it 'street-level' chaos.
Stauder: Most of the time, we'll be a noise filter as well as a conduit for intel.
Now Kāng is giving Stauder the side-eye. Stauder just grins back at him.
Kāng: A conduit can transmit intel in either direction.
Kāng: It can also transmit disinfo.
Stauder: As well as hot air but we'll keep the advertising to a minimum.
