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 shot of Nicole, from Hernandez' POV. She looks like she's mostly recovered, regaining her composure.
Nicole: I … ah …
Nicole: Captain Jesús Hernandez, on the matter of your felonious actions I defer adjudication, pending further evidence.
Nicole: For now I will cooperate with Dr. O'Murchadha, per my contract - but you're on probation with me.
High angle shot of Moe, Nicole, Murphy, Hernandez and Seamus in the break room.
Nicole: So what happens next?
Hernandez: My comrades have been herding the passengers and surviving crew into the lifeboats ...
Exterior shot of the Argosy, with lifeboats flying away from her hull. We can see the Jalopy docked.
Caption (Hernandez): They will continue into the Jovian System have enough fuel to bring them in close to Ganymede where they can be rescued …
Back in the break room, Moe, Nicole and Hernandez (who has put his visor back on).
Hernandez: … in about six days.
Nicole: Ew. six days crammed with a bunch of people in a lifeboat? Smelly!
Moe: You've never been on bivouac, have you?
