Sci-Fi Adventure Monday - Wednesday - Friday.
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: 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
At the end of the pressurized gangway, Murphy and Nicole climb into the front pair of seats in a 4-seater cockpit.
Murphy: They should have enough lead-time now to reach the rendezvous.
Nicole: Feels kind of odd that we'll be getting there in less than an hour.
External view of the modified boat, in the hangar as the gangway retracts.
Murphy: Most of the time will be spent getting clear of Chaos, then adjusting vectors, then the final approach to PersiphaŽ.
Nicole: Even though I've been to two other star systems and back now, it still feels weird going halfway across our own solar system in the wink of an eye.
A different spacecraft is near an oblong moonlet, with crescent Jupiter in the background.
Maureen: We're in the lee of PersiphaŽ, dropping the EM shield.
Maureen: No indication we've been followed, or tracked.
Li: Let's hope not.
In the cockpit, Maureen and Li.
Maureen: Yeah, it won't be long before the EM shield becomes obsolete as a cloak.
Maureen: It's little use against the improved mass detectors.
Li: True enough. We're becoming the victims of our own success.
