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 chats with two guests, one male and one female. Their 'accessories' stand a bit back and form a circle around them.
Male guest: So, you knew Dr. Po at the time he developed the Karyopherin-Dimorphic Phosphorlyzation process?
Seamus: A few decades prior to that, actually. We met at one of the Science Reconciliation Conferences after the end of the First Mercorp War.
Three-shot of Seamus and the two guests, some of the 'accessories' visible.
Female guest: The first war! He must have been quite young then.
Seamus: He had just turned 40 -- in Terran years anyway. Conditions here were quite challenging then. Everyone was either in caves or enclosed surface habitats.
Three-shot of Seamus and the two guests. We can see Nicole looking bored.
Female guest: But the terraforming project had begun more than 50 years earlier!
Seamus: Yes, but it was a slow process. It would be -- ah --80 more Huoxing years before the outdoor air could be safely breathed.
Similar shot. Nicole suppresses a yawn. Seamus smiles at his own joke.
Female guest: I was born in 221 -- by our calendar. I don't recall not being able to breathe outdoors.
Seamus: That would be 434 by my calendar -- but what's 213 years among friends?
