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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
The girls are standing in front of still yet another version of the trans-dimensional probe prototype near the hangar airlock.
Caption: Five days later:
Murphy: Well, at least it's pretty.
Nicole: Pretty cool, if I do say so myself.
Panel 2
The girls standing before the tracking monitor as before, except that Nicole is at the controls. We can see the probe coasting to altitude
Murphy: Probe coasting to 20,000 klicks in 3 2 1
Nicole: Engaging breach engine.
Panel 3A
Medium shot of the probe surrounded by a strong electric flash.
Nicole (OP) What!

Panel 3B
Empty space where the probe was.
Nicole (OP) YES!
Panel 4
Nicole is hopping with excitement. (In 2 gravs she can hop pretty high.) Murphy is still calm.
Nicole: We did it! We did it!
Murphy: Not so fast. Did you expect that flash?
Panel 5
Nicole pauses in her celebration. Murphy is looking at the monitor.
Nicole: Uh, no, not really
Murphy: It was a 5 kilo-watt broad-band radiation pulse. I'd hate to be standing next to that when it happened.
Panel 6
Nicole has arms crossed, Murphy has hands on hips.
Nicole: It should be a simple matter to dampen that effect in future tests.
Murphy: I should hope so. More displays like that could bring unwanted attention to this planetoid.
Nicole: We'll see after it returns.
Murphy: IF it returns.

Panel 7
The girls are watching the monitor as the probe reappears in another flash.
Caption: Five minutes later:
Murphy: Damn. I hope no one noticed that.
Nicole: The inverse-square law is our friend.
Nicole: Let's see what the recorder caught.
Panel 8
The girls are looking at the monitor (OP) in puzzlement.
Nicole: What the shuck!
Murphy: This doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
