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.

Transcript For Strip 111

Panel 1
Seamus deals with the Felipe Mendoza and the Agent Stone. Somewhere we can see Nicole's Sun-Shooter jacket folded and laid on a counter or table. Nicole is not in evidence. Mendoza tries to get in Seamus' face but he's not tall enough.
Mendoza: I am Felipe Mendoza, Hilliott Security.
Mendoza: Why did you return to your rooms after you checked out?
Panel 2
Three-shot, Seamus, Mendoza, and Stone.
Seamus: For the fifth time, we did NOT check out, despite what your records say.
Seamus: Your system is not secure, sir, and you have been hacked, no doubt repeatedly.
Panel 3
Seamus and the agents. Mendoza is enraged, Stone looks bemused. Seamus looks at Mendoza levelly.
Mendoza: Slander! How DARE you make such a claim?
Seamus: Because I hacked it myself in less than two minutes. If you'll shut up for five minutes I'll explain everything.
Panel 4
Three-shot, Seamus, Stone and Mendoza. Mendoza is apoplectic but remains silent.
Seamus: I had called Room Service to reserve a flegg to the spaceport for us in the morning.
Seamus: The clerk said we had already checked out and addressed me as 'Jerome' and told me to stop pranking him.
Panel 5
Seamus and the agents. Mendoza pipes up..
Seamus: I logged into the hotel's administrative section and saw this whole section of rooms had been flagged 'vacant' as of 13:00 yesterday.
Hotel Agent: You logged into … that's a restricted area!
Panel 6
Seamus and the agents. Mendoza is too aghast to interrupt Seamus. The Insurance Agent looks on thoughtfully.
Seamus: That's when I looked on the maintenance schedule and saw that this section was scheduled for vacuuming at 03:30 this morning.
Seamus: This was no coincidence – it was a special command entry created yesterday morning.

Panel 7
Now Stone has a question.
Stone: Any idea who made that entry?
Seamus: No – there was no time to investigate, as I had only five minutes to warn Ms. Oresme and then get into my emergency pressure-suit.

Panel 8
Now Nicole enters the frame. She has put her anysuit on and is using it to generate a curve-concealing dress-suit, with an ankle-length skirt. She has a sour expression, and Seamus is blushing.
Nicole: Five minutes? More like 5 seconds.
Nicole: Unless you put your suit on first and then remembered to warn me.
Seamus: Ah yes, well ...
