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
The whole gang still in the conference room. The Zytemondians' moods range from shock to outrage.
Sargon: Demise? You've got to be kidding!
Lupin: Zytemonde has its problems but it's still thriving!
Bok: A population of ten million after 11 generations is hardly what I'd call a decline.
Alyss responds with gentle sadness.
Alyss: No Bok, I'm sorry. Not ten million. Not even five million.
Alyss: Zytemonde's population is currently about 2.5 million and declining by 3 percent per year.
Elric: What? How can you say that?
Diana, her arms wide. Elric is subdued.
Alyss: Oh, for crying out loud! Have you looked around? Your infrastructure is crumbling.
Alyss: Your monorails are never more than a quarter full. You have more empty houses and apartments than occupied.
Alyss: Your dispensaries look like mausoleums! Your recreation centers are mostly deserted! Is this efficient resource allocation?
Elric: Uh … no?
