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 166

Panel 1
Still at the breakfast cafe, at the table, Seamus is leaning forward and speaking softly.
Seamus: The problem is, as I see it you are manifestly well-qualified to be my assistant.
Nicole: I … I can't ...
Panel 2
Seamus is standing, and taking Nicole by the hand, leading her to stand up as well.
Seamus: You are exhausted from stress and lack of sleep and should not be making any life-changing decisions in this state.
Seamus: Please come with me.
Panel 3
The two walk down a broad concourse, with numerous other people going about their business.
Nicole: Where are we going?
Seamus: Did you know Ishtar Station has an Áine's Spa?
Panel 4
They turn into a decorated store-front style entrance to Áine's Spa. Nicole looks incredulous.
Nicole: Áine's? Really?
Seamus: My dear Ms. Oresme, you are about to receive 24 hours of paradise.
Panel 5
Nicole, clad in a smock, is reclined on what looks like a bed of lotus blossoms, in a room illuminated by dozens of candles. There are also a couple of incense burners. She appears to be sleeping peacefully.
Caption (Seamus): 'They will likely start you with an aromatic deep-rest period, in a nano-chelation-bed, to cleans the poisons from your system.'
Panel 6
Nicole in a different cafe than before, this one has a musical performing quartet on a stage. Nicole is enjoying her meal of fruits and meats. We can see some other spa customers (mostly female) at other tables.
Caption (Seamus): 'Followed by a day of delicious – and nutrient-packed – food, drink and live entertainment.'
Panel 7
Nicole is sleeping peacefully in a more normal bed (not her hotel bed).
Caption (Seamus): Finally, another assisted-sleep cycle to bring your circadian back into synch and your HPA axis back into balance.

Panel 8
Nicole, looking refreshed and resplendent, emerges from the Áine's Spa entrance to meet Seamus.
Caption: 24 hours later:
Seamus: So, Ms. Oresme, are you ready to continue our journey?
Nicole: Journey? We're on a journey?
