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 156

Panel 1
Exterior view of the shuttle in its reflective cocoon, from a frontal angle. We can see the bogey approaching in the far distance. Its laser is no longer firing.
Nicole: Bogey is now 1100 meters away, closing at 160 meters per second.
Nicole: At its current rate it will come up along our top side at about 50 meters away.

Panel 2
Nicole, Seamus and the Pilot inside the shuttle. Nicole is peering at her holographic display.
Seamus: Tap the lowest left icon again, to bring up the EM-shield requester.
Nicole: OK, now what?

Panel 3
Focus on Nicole and her display, but we can still see Seamus in the right background.
Seamus: Now, dial in a new range setting, 300 meters, but wait until the bogey is 400 meters away before executing.
Panel 4
Nicole and Seamus, focus shifted a bit to include more of Seamus, who is getting angry.
Nicole: But once they get inside the EM-Shield, won't they be able to take control of our shuttle?
Seamus: No arguments! We have seconds! Do it!
Panel 5
Close-up on Nicole, there's a small requester box in the display in front of her face. She touches a finger to the 'execute' button.
Nicole: All right, then. Here goes nothing ...

Panel 6
Exterior view. We can see the bogey now – it's a large, rather evil-looking ship, now only a few dozen meters away from the expanded EM-shield boundary. It has an open bay on her underside large enough to engulf the small shuttle, although for now it is flying a bit above the shuttle's path, avoiding the thruster flare.
Nicole: Shield now at 300 meters.
Nicole: Bogey now at 350 meters ...
Panel 7
Same shot. As the bogey intersects the shield boundary, electrical arcs flash all over the bogey's hull.
SFX: BZZARRKK!!!

Panel 8
Inside the shuttle, Nicole, Seamus and the Pilot, looking quizzically at his instruments. Seamus is grinning somewhat evilly.
Pilot: It – came briefly within 250 meters, then stopped accelerating.
Pilot: It's falling away now. What happened to them?
Seamus: I happened to them.
