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.

Seamus: Tong Xie Po and Ma Bo Nu.
Two-shot of Seamus and Ventura. Seamus glances sideways at Ventura as he speaks. Ventura seems oblivious.
Seamus: They are heirs to the estate of the late Po Xu-ke, an old friend of mine.
Seamus: Po made major advances in life-extension technology, where he made his fortune.
The quartet at their table. Seamus looks downcast.
Nicole: Kind of ironic. Why didn't he do a rejuvenation, instead of letting himself die?
Seamus: I ... I don't know. His explanation was ... too cryptic
Nicole lays a hand on Seamus', in a gesture of sympathy.
Nicole: I'm sorry for being insensitive.
Nicole: It must be difficult, a man of your years, losing the friends of your youth.
Seamus: You don't know the half of it.
