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 1440

Panel 1
Hugo begins pacing around the room, going into professor mode. We see the galaxy displayed in a large window in the center of the monitor screen.
Hugo: Of course, we're seeing this galaxy as it appeared roughly 200,000 years ago.
Hugo: Because that's how long its light took to reach us out here beyond its halo.
Hugo: Which of course, makes cataloging and navigation rather more complicated.
Panel 2
Hugo continues his lecture:
Hugo: We must wait here for 140 kiloseconds while Causa Sui observes the various stars, clusters, and nebulae, and records their motion vectors.
Hugo: Then, combining that with simultaneous gravimetric readings, it will create a new map of the galaxy as it exists in the present time.
Hugo: This new map, of course, will be merely an estimate. We will need to move progressively closer to the different sextants for better data.
Panel 3
Two-shot of Eithne and Murphy, looking a bit exasperated.
Hugo (OP): And of course, as 'simultaneous' and 'the present time' can only be roughly defined within relativistic limits
Eithne: Ah sir, is he always like this on your expeditions?
Murphy: I thought I'd broken him of the habit, but I guess I'll need to punish him some more.
