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.
In a large conference hall, looking from the back to front, we see rows with several dozen people sitting in chairs, facing the front where we see sitting behind a table, to the left, Johanna, in the center, Antigone, and on the right, Seamus. There is a large viewscreen on the wall behind them. Antigone is speaking.
Antigone: I hereby convene this extraordinary hearing, in conformity with provisions of the Treaty of Tycho ...
Three-shot of Seamus, looking subdued in his Faraday helmet, Antigone, still speaking, and Johanna, wearing her poker face.
Antigone: It is alleged that Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, a resident of L-5 City, is in fact the infamous Theophilus Farnsworth, of West Terra, instigator of the Calamities.
Antigone: Dr. Johanna Diamondi so alleges, and seeks to extradite O'Murchadha to West Terra for trial.
Voice from off-panel: Objection!
Angle shot to include Murphy, who has stepped forward from the front row of the gallery.
Antigone: Murphy, advocate for O'Murchadha, is recognized. What is your basis?
Murphy: Thank you. If my client's accuser is to be considered on equal footing with my client, should she not also be required to wear a Faraday helmet?
Johanna is outraged, Antigone looks amused.
Johanna: That's ridiculous! Farnsworth's helmet is there for security reasons!
Antigone: And how good is our security here should I rule against you?
Antigone: Objection sustained. Dr. Diamondi, either you don a Faraday helmet of your own or remove O'Murchadha's.
