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.
Exterior view of Murphy's Pockrocket, blazing along.
Murphy (thoughtsend, from inside rocket): I'm in a pockrocket you should be able to see on the ship's radar.
Murphy: I'm on a faster track but right now I'm close enough we can converse.
Cutaway view of the rocket to show Murphy standing in the interior of the shield-cone. There's a rucksack and an overnight bag at her feet.
Murphy (thoughtsend): Although I can change course and rendezvous with Cissonius, with the Captain's permission.
Murphy: And yours, of course.
Cut to Seamus in the Control Deck. He's now sitting on the rear bulkhead, his feet dangling in the hatchway. Bill is looking at him with a puzzled expression.
Seamus (thoughtsend): Murphy, listen carefully: Nicole has been kidnapped!
Seamus: A Pinocchio has taken her to a freighter passing about 5 gigameters abeam.
Medium close-up on Murphy, her jaw set, her eyes narrowed and glowing red.
Murphy (thoughtsend): A Pinocchio?
Murphy: I'd like the position and vector for that freighter, please.
