New Guide For Newbies [ Jul 7, 2014 ]
This week we return to brand new strips of Quantum Vibe. Yay!!! We pick up where Seamus is in the middle of having a major metaphorical bowel movement, when he hears a helpful voice via his cortical implant.
Last week's series of strips, Our Story Thus Far, is now easily access-able through our new guide for readers. Perfect for the reader who just heard about Quantum Vibe, but wants the Cliff's Notes version because she wants to catch up fast and join the adventure now! A handy link is positioned to the right of the page navigation buttons on the Quantum Vibe web site.
The Transcript For This Page
In the encounter room, Nichole sits at the far side of the circular bed from Seamus, mostly covered up with pillows and bed-covers.
Seamus: You no doubt have heard about the various expeditions to the stars.
Nicole: Sure. Scores of docuvids have been made from their stories.
Seamus, in the lower left of the panel, against a backdrop of outer space with a late 21st-century spacecraft moving towards the Rigel Kentauri double-star.
Seamus: The first mission to the Alpha Centauri system, crewed by primitive A.I.s, arrived at its destination in 151 S.A.* after 50 years' transit without a hitch.
Seamus: There were no habitable worlds there, but none were expected. It was more a proof of concept. The ship parked itself on a suitable small planetoid and still awaits retrieval.

Seamus, in lower left panel, against a different space backdrop, a different ship rockets away from the Sol system.
Seamus: Twenty years after the first mission launched, a second, faster ship – the Enterprise – was sent forth – this one crewed by A.I.s but also containing 50 humans in stasis – bound for Epsilon Eridani, 10.5 light years away.
Seamus: It was expected to reach Epsi-Eri about the same time the first mission reached Rigel.
Two shot of Nicole and Seamus, in the room. Nicole looks interested.
Nicole: But they didn't make it.
Seamus: No. And one knows for certain why.
Seamus: Transmissions ceased when the craft was not quite six light-years out.
