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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
The command deck of the Argosy, Captain Santos, First Mate Mueller, ChiefNav Bartoli. Important – there are two large windows to left and right.
Bartoli: We are now entering the 60 Gigameter Jovian perimeter.
Santos: Okay everyone, stay sharp. Scanners on maximum, charge the cannons, combat-bots on stand-by.
Two-shot of Mueller and Santos.
Mueller: Do you really expect trouble? We're a passenger liner, after all.
Mueller: It's not like we're carrying any high-value trade goods, or equipment.
Mueller and Santos.
Santos: No, but we are carrying several high-value passengers.
Santos: Gensaxwal officers, a Lunar Senator, Omegatek muckety-mucks.
Santos: They're supposed to be meeting to resolve the problems on Io.
Looking past Bartoli at Santos and Mueller.
Mueller: Huh. Labor troubles. They should just vacuum the lot of them and bring in fresh workers.
Santos: Recruitment is expensive. I hope they find a less drastic solution. I own some Gensaxwal stock, too.
