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.
Dr. Sharkisian and Seamus in Sharkisian's office.
Sharkisian: The next day's installment was delayed when the Freedomz Feenix node was knocked offline by a sophisticated cyber-attack.
Sharkisian: Two days later, the node was back up and this was their first vidcast:
Claud Southend's face in front of a new graphic reminiscent of the first, but Nicole is not smiling and the text reads, 'Nicole Oresme: Criminal or Victim?'
Claud: I DOAN KNOE HAO MUTCH TIEM ILL HAS BEFORE DIS NOAD IZ KNOCKD DOWN AGAIN, SO ILL BE CONCIZE ...

Medium close-up of Southend
Southend: BUSTAMANTE HAD CLAIMD HE HAD BEEN HIRD BY ORESMEZ ASSURANCE AGENCY, BUT IN FACT HE HAS NO TIEZ 2 DAT AGENCY, SMITH & HOLDR RESOLUSHUNS, AT ALL.
Now the graphic shows Rando in a circle linked to portraits in numerous other circles, most prominently Leroy, (labeled 'Leroy Hamilton, Former Police Chief') the 'Prosecutor Ursula Shroeder,' 'Judge Judith Neopolitan,' the 'Attorney Herberto Bustamante', the two cops who arrested Nicole ('Mike Weatherbee' and 'Carla Poblano'), the prison guard we've seen several times, and several others ranging from obvious thugs to well-groomed elite types.
Southend (voiceover): BUSTAMANTE IZ PART OV CLANDESTINE NETWORK COMPOSD OV LAW ENFORCERS, ATTORNEYS, AN KNOWN CRIMINALS, ALL LINKD 2 RANDO GREENE.
Two-shot of Seamus and Sharkisian, viewing the room screen. Seamus looks incredulous.
Seamus: This is sounding like a Gabrielle Lord novel.
Sharkisian: Gabrielle who?
Seamus: Long story.
Sharkisian: Anyway, it gets worse.
