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 1407

The group enters the lounge.
Alyss: What about the refugees?
Bok: Well about two-thirds of them chose to stay on Zytemonde.
Bok: Your, ah, alter-ego convinced them they could help build a better civilization there.
Panel 2
The group stands around the center of the room.
Hugo: I have grave doubts about that.
Hugo: Even the best-intentioned intelligence can be corrupted by the kind of power she has.
Bok: Hey, this is Alyss we're talking about.
Panel 3
Hugo facepalms. Murphy and Alyss are amused. Bok is bewildered.
Hugo: Oh. My. Gourd. 'We just need the right overlord!'
Hugo: Will that old chestnut never die?
Bok: What's a chestnut?
Panel 4
Murphy, Alyss, Bok, Hugo, Monty in the lounge.
Murphy: He means it's a bad idea that's been repeated often in history.
Murphy: The problem with centralized power isn't so much who wields it.
Murphy: It's in the nature of power itself. It has a dynamic of its own.
Bok: But, Alyss ...
Panel 5
Alyss places her hand affectionately on Bok's cheek.
Alyss: It's okay, Bok. Hugo and Murphy make a valid point.
Alyss: It's an unprecedented situation, though.
Alyss: Perhaps we'll visit your world again someday, see how it's turned out.
Bok: Oz is my world, now.
Panel 6
Murphy, Alyss, Bok, Hugo
Murphy: He signed the Covenant shortly after returning here.
Alyss: I'm sure Oz is very exciting to you. I wonder how your father feels about it.
Bok: My father! I almost forgot!
