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's Helio-Flyer and her flotilla are descending towards Mercury's north pole, now about 2km above and downrange from Helios Base. They are thrusting against their angle of descent.
Dispatcher (filtered): Helio-Flyer this is Dispatch, we track your approach at 117 mark 2000 meters.
In the Helio-Flyer cockpit, an extremely wired Nicole keeps her vigil.
Dispatcher: Transfer landing control to base, we'll reel you in.
Nicole: That's a negative, Dispatch.
At the Dispatcher's desk. We can see Seamus leaning by the window, focus is on the Dispatcher who is a lot more annoyed than usual.
Nicole: This is my cortical implant flying this bird. I'm not handing the keys over to anyone, do you copy?
Dispatcher: Listen, kiddo, hand over control or you don't have clearance to land.
In the lower part of the panel, the Dispatcher at his console. In the upper part, in a cameo sub-frame, we see Jake Offenberg. In the upper right, in another cameo, it's Gary Fox.
Jake: Aw, let her land, Enry!
Gary: She's flown right on the beam all the way so far. I think she can handle it.
Dispatcher: You guys are out of your minds.
Seamus leans into the Dispatcher's window a bit, in a conspiratorial pose. Dispatcher just growls at him.
Seamus: Beg pardon, but I think there's a situation here you're not aware of …
Dispatcher: I know my job, Dr. O Murchadha.
In the corridor outside the Dispatcher's window, we see Seamus standing by the window and the Dispatcher peering past him, at the large crowd of people who are assembled there.
Seamus: It seems that a great many people have taken interest in our young helio-flyer …
Looking over the tops of the heads of people in the corridor, at Seamus by the window with the dispatcher looking at the crowd with some alarm.
Seamus: News media, dignitaries, a lot of people are expecting to see our heroine make her landing. It would be rather gauche to disappoint them, don't you think?
Medium close-up on the Dispatcher, barking commands into his console.
Dispatcher: Crash alert! Close hangar blast doors! Emergency crews stand by!
Dispatcher: All other persons clear the hangar immediately!
