Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday - Wednesday - Friday.
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.

The Transcript For This Page
Seamus, Vanessa, and Nicole in the bistro. A waiter is bringing their main courses. Nicole is sitting there, agape. Vanessa is solemn.
Vanessa: Yes, I told you I used various bits of genetic material from 2400 anonymous donors.
Vanessa: I'm sorry, dear, but I lied.
Two-shot of Seamus and Vanessa, speaking to Nicole who is OP.
Seamus: Don't blame your mother. There were non-disclosure agreements involved.
Vanessa: Also, non-obligation agreements, severing any legal bonds between you and them.
Close-up of Vanessa. This is clearly difficult for her.
Vanessa: I – was having problems with the original project design. I couldn't produce a viable fetus.
Vanessa: Seamus suggested using entire chromosome sequences from selected donors, rather than trying to build your genome one exon at a time.
Nicole is visibly upset. Vanessa sadly sips her wine.
Nicole: You – you used entire chromosomes, not exons?
Nicole: I thought I was the worlds' first osmotic clone – now you tell me I'm a living fraud?
