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.
Nicole, Li-Liang, Murphy, Seamus exiting the Sandfort Science Museum
Li: Turns out I hadn't killed my dad, just severed his spinal cord. A few days in the medi-vat fixed that.
Li: But he was arrested, tried and convicted for murdering my mother.
Fashback scene – Jade looks back sadly as an adult leads her away from young Li in the foreground, who is held by a different adult.
Li: Since we had no family on-world Jade and I went into the colonial foster care system.
Li: Jade was quickly adopted by an executive family who moved back to Luna shortly afterward.
Li: I wouldn't see her again for 25 years.
Back to the present – Murphy is looking impatient, while Nicole looks like she wants to cry.
Murphy: I don't mean to sound insensitive, and I'm sorry you had a rough childhood ...
Murphy: … but I don't see how it relates to my question: How did you meet Seamus?
Nicole throws her arms around Li and buries her face in his neck.
Nicole: BAAAWWWW!!!! That's the saddest storyyyyy!
