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 1525

Panel 1
Our trio and the four Fftpplts enter the large building through a grand entryway. Several functionaries are walking about, looking busy.
Pfbbtt-pfft: So you don't represent any government? Are you free-booters?
Murphy: 'Free-lancers' may be a better term. We are explorers.
Panel 2
Closer shot of Murphy and Pfbbtt-pfft, including some of the retinue.
Pfbbtt-pfft: Explorers? What are you looking for?
Murphy: We came to your galaxy on a mapping mission.
Murphy: We note star systems and planets of interest, and catalog them.
Panel 3
They enter a conference room, as the administrator gestures towards the table.
Pfbbtt-pfft: Please have a seat.
Pfbbtt-pfft: Does your catalog note which planets are inhabited?
Murphy: If by that you mean which planets have sapient life-forms, well, you are the first technological specie we've encountered.
Panel 4
PP sits at the head of the table, as his male guards remain standing, a few steps back. Murphy sits at his left, the female assistant across from Murphy. Hugo and Eithne are seated next to Murphy.
PP: The first? That seems hard to believe.
Murphy: In our home galaxy, humanity and its off-shoots are the only technological race currently extant.
Murphy: Simple life is plentiful; intelligent life is rare among the stars.
Panel 5
Angle focuses on PP, Murphy and Eithne. PP is cracking a joke, as Eithne rolls her eyes. Her speech balloon-tail points to the necklace she's wearing.
PP: I have observed that intelligence is rare even among intelligent species. {Honk!}
Murphy: Yes, this is a common observation among my own people as well.
Eithne: You might say it's a universal problem.
Panel 6
PP and Hugo all looking at Eithne, who is a bit embarrassed now by the attention. Murphy is glaring at Hugo.
PP: You are using a voder? Do you have a speech impediment?
Eithne: I I guess I do, so far as your language is concerned.
Hugo: Let's just say her mouth has other talents.
Murphy (thoughtsend): HUGO!!!
