Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke 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.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.
Medium close-up on Antigone, re-capping.
Antigone: So you've discovered a plot to commit mass-murder, arranged so as to trigger a general war between Ceres and Hygiea.
Antigone: Vesta Vista Development is the major actor here but you also implicate Omega Tech and the Republic of Luna government.
Antigone: So, what did you do with your findings?
Re-establish scene in hotel bedroom: Ed Newsdon, Chelsea Flemming, Nicole, Antigone, and Murphy floating in the Bubb. Chelsea looks remorseful.
Ed: Chelsea took them to Nina Levin, against my advice.
Chelsea: And she ended up dead. Because of me.
Ed: No, because of Vesta Vista. I figured we'd be next so we contacted Chelsea's grandfather.
Chelsea and Nicole.
Chelsea: We explained the situation to him, and showed him our data – he can process information remarkably quickly, you know.
Nicole: And he believes you.
Chelsea: And he believes us, yes.
Ed, Chelsea, Nicole and Antigone.
Ed: He contacted some people he knows on Ceres but they're skeptical. It's hard to react to a threat you can't see.
Chelsea: But Grampa thinks he has a solution.
Nicole: Huh. I'll bet I know what that is, too.
