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 1468

Panel 1
Hugo, Eithne, Murphy in the galley booth.
Hugo: Despite what it sounds like, I'm convinced it's conversational speech of some sort.
Hugo: Not altogether more strange than cetacean's whistles, squawks and clicks.
Eithne: But much funnier.
Panel 2
Eithne and Murphy. Murphy is gently admonishing her.
Murphy: Bosun, if we're going to be interacting with these, whatever they are, you will need to keep a more accepting attitude. No doubt our speech would sound 'funny' to them.
Eithne: Uh, okay Murph I mean, aye, Captain.
Panel 3
Medium 3-shot of the trio
Hugo: There are also what I believe are video signals on some of the other bands, but they are taking a bit longer to decode.
Hugo: There are dozens of variables, from frame rate and scan type to analog versus digital formatting.
Murphy: How long do you think you will need to complete this task?
Panel 4
Medium close-up on Hugo as his face lights up.
Hugo: It's a matter of trial and error until I find ...
Hugo: I think I've got it!
Hugo: Yes, this is very close to the old ISDB-3 digital format, with Ogg-Theora encoding. Interesting.
Murphy (OP): So show us already.
Panel 5
A holoscreen appears above the table. In it are a pair of the aliens, seen head-and-shoulders. Their faces look like a pair of buttocks, framed by something like human hair. Two eyes on each 'cheek,' and something that looks like a soft, flexible horn extending from the lower center, apparently the source of their vocalization. Our heroes are momentarily transfixed.
Audio: Pfbbbb-Pft!Pft! Plblblblblffftp-pbp. Pftbbbpftbb-Pfft! Pffft!

Panel 6
Hugo covers his mouth with one hand, suppressing a chuckle. Eithne explodes with laughter. Murphy face-palms, likewise suppressing a guffaw.
Eithne: BWAAAAAAA-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-!
Murphy: Oh. M-my. G-gourd.
