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
We see the girls from behind, looking up at their monitor. Just to the left of center is a sun, looking quite a bit larger than the sun looks from Chaos. There is a very bright object in the middle-right.
Murphy: The sun looks way too large. Is it bigger, or closer?
Nicole: I, er, didn't build the kind of instrumentation into the probe to detect that.

Panel 2
Murphy's hand points towards the bright object to the right.
Murphy: And what's that? Is it a planet? Jupiter maybe?
Nicole: Hang on I used an ultra-high-res camera so I can magnify the image a bit ...

Panel 3
The object now appears as a gas-giant type planet but one unlike any we know. Instead of bands it is covered with swirling storms and has two large moons.
Murphy: That doesn't look like Jupiter.
Nicole: No, the EM emissions are all wrong. And if that's Jupiter, one of those moons is almost as big as Terra.
Panel 4
Two-shot of the girls looking even more puzzled.
Murphy: Definitely not Jupiter. At least not as we know him.
Nicole: We only side-stepped by 200 delta-hamids. How could the Solar System have changed so much?
Murphy: Everything about this is nuts.
