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.

Seamus, Jesús, Nicole and Murphy enter a rocky tunnel from an airlock door. They are very nearly floating, having to move themselves along via hand-grips embedded in the walls.
Murphy: No electro-grav? The natural gravity here is less than .02 gravs ...
Hernandez: The conditions here are spartan, yes. Of necessity.
The four pull themselves through the tunnel.
Hernandez: We must keep our power consumption here minimized to avoid detection.
Hernandez: Besides, we rarely get visitors here.
Nicole: You never told me were 'here' is?
More moving through the tunnel.
Hernandez: Sorry. It's not that I don't trust you but we operate under strict need-to-know ...
Murphy: Judging by the composition of the regolith and the surface gravity, it's most likely either Pasiphaë or Carme. I would bet on the latter.
Hernandez looks disconcerted, Nicole annoyed. Seamus grins. Murphy looks pleased with herself.
Hernandez: Er … well, I'm not saying, but I hope you'll keep your speculations to yourself.
Seamus: I trust Murphy with my life, if that helps.
