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.

Exterior shot of the Helio-Flyer in transit to Sol – in this shot the sun is behind us and Mercury is a large white dot in the background.
Caption: The key to Helio-flying is speed.
Caption: Shielding has its limits so you want to get in and out quickly.
Another exterior shot – the Helio-Flyer is flying in a sunward arc, Sol looms large and very bright.
Caption: For the shortest possible transit time, accelerate sunward at 15 gravs for about a day, transiting into a polar sub-orbit
In the cockpit, Nicole is asleep in her suit.
Caption: Nicole's bio-suit attends to all of her biological needs for the duration, which includes scheduling sleep time.
Another exterior shot, now the Flyer is turned around and thrusting in an angle away from Sol, which now fills 1/3 of the panel
Caption: At 20 million km from Sol, the flyer is decelerating along its trajectory, which will slow it to 250kps at 4 million km from the sun's southern pole.
