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 151

Panel 1
Nicole, Seamus and the Pilot inside the shuttle. Nicole is peering at her holographic display.
Nicole: Okay, we're at the 250 meter mark – now.
Seamus: Hit the lowest left icon, and a requester for range should come up.
Seamus: Set it at 50 meters.
Panel 2
Focus on Pilot, we can see Seamus behind him.
Pilot: I have just lost the beacon to Ishtar.
Pilot: Also, I've lost radar. What gives?
Seamus: I'm afraid this is an unavoidable effect of my EM-shield.
Panel 3
Focus on Nicole and her display. She still sees multiple blips on her screen but they look different.
Nicole: I'm still seeing the traffic – but it looks different.
Seamus: Ah, very good!
Panel 4
Closer shot on Nicole, looking confused.
Nicole: But what am I – hey, wait a minute!
Nicole: There's a new blip that wasn't there before – 12 hundred klicks away and closing at 7 klicks per second!
Panel 5
Close-up on Seamus, grinning triumphantly.
Seamus: AH-HA! I knew it!
Seamus: They can cloak their radar signature but they can't hide their mass.

Panel 6
Looking forward in the shuttle cabin from the rear – we see that one of the covered boxes has glowing lights showing through the tarp covering.
Pilot: Your device can detect gravitic-field displacements that small?
Seamus: Indeed it can.
Seamus: I developed it to detect small asteroids but this application works as well.
Panel 7
Exterior of the shuttle, rocketing through space, now it has a faint bubble around it.
Pilot: But why the EM-shield?
Seamus: Unless I miss my guess, our interlopers are trying to take control of your shuttle remotely, via wireless.

Panel 8
Three-shot of Nicole, Pilot and Seamus inside the shuttle, focus on Pilot and Seamus.
Pilot: To what end?
Seamus: Most likely to board and kidnap us. We have valuable information.
