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.
Bill and Pearl are inside the lift when a sudden shaking knocks them sideways, with Pearl falling against Bill.
Caption: Inside the lift:
Bill: What the hell!
Cut to Manny, on the control deck.
Manny: Something just launched out of the cargo bay!
Bill (electronic): Didja get a look at it?
Manny's hand pointing at a monitor. We see an image of Baines flying a single-engine hopper open to space with a human-sized capsule bundled behind him.
Manny: One of the cameras did. Got it on monitor 2, if you want to take a look.
Bill in the lift with Pearl. He's got his fingers to his temple and is looking at a holoimage about 15cm in front of his face. Pearl is standing by, blushing.
Bill: That's our Pinocchio, all right. Could he have Nicole in that capsule?
Manny in the control cabin.
Manny: Could have anything in it, Cap'n.
Manny: I recommend a thorough search to make sure he hasn't, uh, stashed her body in a cranny somewhere.
Pearl is emerging from the lift to the lounge deck, while Bill remains in the lift.
Bill: A gloomy thought but I agree with you.
Bill: Hugh, get up to cargo deck and see if you can get it re-sealed and pressurized. I'll grab my suit and meet you there.
On the lounge deck, Pearl joins Mineola, Dorothy, Fred and Nelson gathered around where Seamus is lying on a sofa that has been converted into a chaise lounge.
Pearl: How's he doing?
Dorothy: Sleeping, for the moment.
Focus is on sleeping Seamus with a gadget about the size of a cartoon boxing glove covering his right hand.
Pearl: Bill thinks that douche-bot took Nicole away with him.
Dorothy: Let's not tell Seamus right away.
