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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Going to flash-back again: Hugh Mk. 1's various parts are being packed in boxes. The face looks very outraged. Theo narrates from a cameo inset:
Theo: Oh, it got worse, absolutely. I was disassembled and boxed-up for storage.
Theo: The bastards didn't have the decency to shut me off first.
Panel 2
A spaceship roughly the size of Causa Sui but definitely a different ship, in a large hangar. Various catwalks and latters arrayed around it, and some Brennir crewmen messing around, but no sign the ship was entered.
Caption (Theo): 'But I still had contact with our ship. In a final act of desperation I uploaded my final logs and ordered it to jump back home.
Caption: 'The ship was intact, the Displacement Drive was functioning , but ...
Panel 3
Back to Murphy and Theo and Hugo in the corridor. Theo is clenching his fists in frustration.
Theo: It. Would. Not. Jump!
Theo: Diagnostics … could find no fault!
Theo: The command was executed with null result!
Panel 4
Shift focus to Murphy and Theo, as Hugo looks on. Theo is looking heartbroken, leans on Murphy a bit but looks away from her.
Murphy: What happened to … my parent self?
Theo: Oh, my dear child, the memory is so painful to recall ...
Theo: … her mind was wiped; she was rendered more vacuously submissive than she appeared to be when I first met her.
Panel 5
Cut to scene with lobotomized Murphy and her new owner, a giant pile of snot that looks something like the governor of New Jersey. The pile of snot is seated in a chair while Murphy stands next to him, wearing hyper-sexy clothing. A leash is attached to her choker, and pile of snot is holding it in one hand while waving at the camera with the other.
There are also some other feminine-appearing creatures gathered around, attired similarly to Murphy.
Caption (Theo): 'I saw in a video transmission, that … that she was sold to some sort of bipedal slug who had a … a sick fetish for certain types of alien forms.
Panel 6
Back in the corridor, Murphy and Hugo glance at each other in shock as Theo finishes the story, not noticing them.
Theo: I shouldn't have done it, but … I couldn't bear to think of Murphy, even her empty shell, in the clutches of that thing.
Theo: With a few scant seconds to act, I hacked into his ship's warp drive controls and tried to jettison the power core but …
Theo: Something went wrong. The ship was destroyed with everyone on board.
