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
Having finished her meal, Diana is placing her dirty dishes in the dish disposal. The python follows her, still hanging from above.
Diana: Yeah, anyway, this whole business with Drusilla and Max intrigues me.
Monty: Max Marrón's death is a tragedy, of course, but ... I do not understand why he did not have a back-up.
Diana: No back-up. You mean, like an under-study?
Panel 2
Diana stops to look at Monty.
Monty: No, as in a personality back-up.
Monty: Most humans routinely encode their personality and memories into quad-hexidecimal form and store them on permanent media.
Monty: Then if their bodies are destroyed in an accident or, more rarely, an illness, they can be restored in new bodies either grown or manufactured for them.
Panel 3
Diana walks through a corridor, the python keeping up somehow.
Diana: No kidding. Does Alyss make back-ups?
Monty: Yes, of course.
Diana: Did the others who went with her?
Monty: That requires having a cortical implant, and there was no time to install any.
Diana: There's a down-side to everything, I suppose.
