Quantum Vibe

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.

SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go! [ Feb 11, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.

Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.




SubscribeStar update: Not yet [ Jan 31, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.

For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Wook, Diana, and Alyss at the hopper landing. Diana looks dubiously at Alyss as she waves a hand dismissively.
Diana: That sounds bad. Really bad.
Alyss: Or, it could be nothing! A false alarm!
Diana: But, I mean, our entire civilization?

Panel 2
Cut to an imagined scene where a man is sitting on a toilet. A bomb is popping into position right in front of him. Alyss explains from a cameo inset.
Alyss: Discontinuous displacement technology not only allows us to travel across the universe ...
Alyss: … but also down the street, or next door, into anyone's private space.
Panel 3
Another scene, somewhat diagrammatic. We can see a section of a building with a visible force-field around it, and that same bomb is bouncing off the outer surface. Alyss again explains from an inset.
Alyss: Almost immediately after Murphy and I developed the Displacement Drive, I went to work on a shield that would protect your bathroom, your flat, your city, or your planet from malicious entry.
Alyss: Just like cyber-security, shield-tech requires continual refinement and updating.
Panel 4
Cut back to the hallway at the hopper landing: Wook, Diana and Alyss.
Diana: You explained all that when I arrived here, but ...
Alyss: But think! What happens if someone finds a flaw in the shield that we can't counter?
Diana: Then we'll either need to spend less time on the toilet, or a lot more.
