Heads Up! Holiday Break Coming. [ Dec 16, 2016 ]
We at BHP wanted to give you a little heads up that next Friday, December 23rd, will be the final strip of Quantum Vibe for 2016. "Gasp!" you exclaim? Well, worry not concerned reader, for this is merely our annual one week break for the production staff to take a well earned rest and enjoy the holidays (as we hope you will as well). New strips will begin again Monday, January 2nd, 2017.
The Transcript For This Page
Nicole and Seamus glide through a passageway into the Staisiún Étaín. They propel themselves via hand-rails placed at intervals along the walls.
Nicole: To bad we have to rush through this.
Nicole: I would've liked to look at the gear they have here – it's supposed to be state-of-the-art.
Nicole and Seamus emerge into a larger compartment and are met by an android who looks vaguely like a Buddhist monk.
Monk: And indeed it is, Ms. Oresme.
Monk: I am called Monk.
Monk: Perhaps we can arrange a tour?
Monk rotates to orient himself 'upward' and glides away. Nicole and Seamus turn to follow him.
Seamus: I'm afraid we're on a tight schedule.
Monk: Your reservation is on file, Dr. O Murchadha. Please follow me.
Monk leads Nicole and Seamus past a space full of gadgetry. Nicole looks like a kid in a candy store.
Seamus: The data has been recorded and sealed as instructed, yes?
Monk: All solar data from the time-stamps you provided.
They enter a room with a bank of shallow, numbered booths, inside each of which are a pair of hand grips, and what looks like stereoscopic viewers attached to a larger machine..
Monk: You are set up for booths 1 and 2.
Seamus: Thank you, Monk. Nicole, please take booth 1.
Seamus and Nicole are now in the booths, their faces pressed against the stereoscopes.
Nicole: How does this work?
Seamus: A high-frequency micro-burst into the ocular receptors that came with your implant.
Seamus: Nearly a teraquad of data transferred in one second.
Same shot, but now the data is being transferred. There is a bright flash seen around the edges of the stereoscopes. Nicole and Seamus are jolted.
Nicole and Seamus fall back a bit in the weightlessness, looking disoriented and with white pupils.
Seamus: Mind you, there is a temporary disorienting effect.
