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.
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.
Seamus and Sharkisian are in a treatment room. Prominent in the frame is a large, oblong open box that looks like a high-tech opened casket. Seamus is just wearing a towel wapped around his loins, and is looking at the box ruefully.
Seamus: Are you sure it's large enough for me?
Sharkisian: I had it re-scaled to your dimensions.
Sharkisian looks over the shoulder of a technician (a female furry) who is manning a control console. Seamus is dithering.
Seamus: You've screened the protocols for all ambiguities?
Sharkisian: Do you need help getting into the vat, Dr. O Murchadha?
Seamus is in the vat (sans towel but we only see the upper half of him). Sharkisian is standing next to the vat, tapping and scribbling on a hand-held Screen.
Seamus: You said I'll come out 50 kilos lighter?
Sharkisian: At most, but no guarantees except that you'll stop growing.
A lid has formed over the vat, and it fills with a gas which instantly renders Seamus unconscious.
Sharkisian: Pleasant dreams, O Murchadha.
