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
Show everyone at the table again, focus on Eithne and Kek. Kek is looking sideways at Fred.
Eithne: You want me to become a 'Cush Queen'? The hell's a 'Cush Queen'?
Kek: I told you that was a lame name, Fred.
Fred: Like anyone else came up with something we all could live with.
Panel 2
The Dude and Eithne:
Dude: Between your cortical implant and your knowledge of cybernetics you have just the qualities needed to run the Cush as a player race, in realtime.
Dude: Also, we'll need you to get rid of those three androids who have been messing things up.
Panel 3
Eithne, Kek and Fred.
Eithne: The three androids – you've identified one as an instance of Hugo. What about the other two?
Kek: Those are the two who came with you. Also named Hugo and Murphy, which is rather confusing.
Fred: Yeah, we understand 'model names' but individuals should each have its own.

Panel 4
Adam, the Dude and Eithne. Eithne is turned towards Fred OC.
Eithne: I'd like to know why you chose to deal with me directly rather than any of the androids.
Adam: Because they're machines, not 'living' in the same sense as you, or as us.
The Dude: They're autonomous but they lack a certain, ah, je ne sais quoi is the closest your language can come to describe it.
Panel 5
Eithne, Kek and Fred.
Eithne: You mean like … a soul? I can't believe I'm so different from arti-folk.
Kek: Let's not get side-tracked into a theological discourse.
Fred: Yeah we'd still be here yapping after this galaxy has burned itself out.
Panel 6
Medium close-up on Eithne.
Eithne: All right, I will agree to be your 'Cush Queen' to save your game.
Eithne: But there are some things you'll all have to do for me.
