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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale! [ Oct 31, 2019 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

How does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism.

Big Head Press announces the release of the latest graphic novel in the QUANTUM VIBE series: Château Périlleux, in which young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

Available now direct from Big Head Press.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In the Causa Sui control room. As the alien convo continues, Eithne thoughtsends with Hugo.
Alien (OP): Fpbbt-fpbbt brrt-pbpbpbpbpb pbbt-pffft! Brrrt-pfbbbt fbbbt ...
Eithne (thoughtsend): I can't follow this. Could you send me that translation matrix?
Hugo (thoughtsend): Very well, but let Murphy do the talking.
Panel 2
From now on, the conversation is presented in English, although the characters are still speaking the alien language.
Looking past our trio at the aliens.
Alien: We were concerned that you are orbiting near one of our security stations.
Murphy: It was accident. We did not see your station until shortly before you came.
Murphy: It is ah very quiet and dark.
Panel 3
Cut to exterior view, the Alien ship standing off from the Causa Sui.
Alien (from its ship): Then why are you orbiting this planet? Why are you in our system?
Murphy (from Causa Sui) : As I said, we are explorers. We have not seen your kind before.
Murphy: For safety, we chose to listen from a distance, to learn about you.
Panel 4
Closer two-shot on Murphy and Eithne, who is wearing her I-told-you-so face.
Aliens: So you were spying on us?
Murphy: We were cautious. We want to know if you are naughty or nice?
Murphy: We mean no harm, and think thought we would frighten you if we presented ourselves too quick quickly.
Panel 5
Show the viewscreen with the Aliens in it.
Alien: We will accept that your intentions are peaceful.
Alien: We invite you now to be escorted to Pbbtptlptl-pbpbt, our colony in this system.
Alien: There we can learn more about one another.

Panel 6
Three-shot of our trio, looking apprehensive.
Murphy (thoughtsend): Was that the sort of invitation we could gracefully refuse?
Hugo (thoughtsend): I'm not certain, but it doesn't seem likely.
Murphy: We could jump away now, and ruin this chance to establish friendly relations
Eithne (thoughtsend): Or go with them and risk getting gassed?
