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.

The female guest turns to address Nicole, who is a bit startled.
Female guest: Is it true, young lady, that you are not merely an escort, but the famous Sun-Diving Girl we've heard so much about lately?
Nicole: Er--yes ma'am, I am Nicole Oresme, science assistant and part-time stunt pilot.
Now all eyes are on Nicole.
Female guest: I read that your ship was partially disabled during the dive, and you flew it all the way back to Mercury using your 'Plant?
Nicole: Yes ma'am, I ...
Female guest: Amazing! It must have been a horrendous experience.
Close-up on Nicole, thinking about where she was rather than where she is.
Nicole: Yeah, it was difficult, but easier than getting dressed-up as eye-candy for a bunch of swells ...
Pull back to see the guests, and Seamus. The male guest is suppressing laughter, the female guest looks offended, and Seamus looks mortified. Nicole holds a hand over her mouth.
Nicole: Oh, crat! Did I say that out loud?
