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
Three-shot of Seamus, Nicole, and Vanessa Oresme, having met on the Pellucidar Station walkway. Nicole looks scandalized, but Seamus and Vanessa are smiling.
Nicole: MOTHER! I can't believe you called my boss a walrus!
Vanessa: Oh, we've said worse things about each other, haven't we, Seamus?
Panel 2
Vanessa has stepped forward to take Seamus' extended hand in greeting. Now Nicole looks confused.
Seamus: Regrettably, we have, and yet we're still friends if I'm not mistaken.
Vanessa: Not on that point.
Vanessa: So, what the hell happened to you?
Panel 3
The three begin moving along the walkway together. Vanessa between Seamus and Nicole. Vanessa and Seamus banter like old friends, Nicole is just getting over her surprise.
Seamus: My last rejuvenation went awry, and my current project has not allowed me time to fix it.
Vanessa: You always did put your work before everything.
Nicole: You – do you know each other?
Panel 4
Three-shot of Seamus, Vanessa, Nicole.
Seamus: Oh, yes, for quite some time. But we haven't seen each other in years.
Seamus: In fact, the last time was 23 years ago, when you called me to consult on your osmotic cloning project.
Panel 5
Three shot from reverse angle, putting Nicole on the left and Seamus on the right.
Nicole: Your osmotic cloning project – you mean, the project that produced me?
Vanessa: Yes, dear, that project.
Panel 6
Swing around again to show the trio from the front. Now Vanessa is looking a bit distressed.
Seamus: And I was a bit more than a consultant.
Nicole: What do you mean?
Panel 7
The group pauses at the entrance to a restaurant named, 'La Bocca.'
Vanessa: Ah, here we are! I made reservations in advance.
Vanessa: I hope you still like novo-Italiano quisine, Seamus.

Panel 8
The three are inside the restaurant, at the hostess station. The hostess is ready for them.
Seamus: I think it's past time you told her.
Vanessa: I will, but I want a glass of wine first.
Nicole: Tell me what?
