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.

Another diagrammatic view of Cissonius, highlighting the shield-generator grid and power plant.
Caption: Her shielding is rated to 500 kilojoules per second, and tied to an absorption system that can convert much of that energy into stored electrical energy for the plasma engines, extending the craft's speed and range.
View inside the engineering/drive section of the boat, with conduits and pipes running everywhere among large vessels.
Caption: The engineering/drive section is very complex and generally off-limits to curious passengers.
