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 1735

Panel 1
Diana slides into the booth next to Juan, across from Alyss.
Caption: It was Roaz who brought me here from my shitty homeworld.
Caption: I know I should be grateful for that, and up to a point, I am.
Caption: But there's a couple of things about Roaz that bother me.
Panel 2
Looking from behind Diana towards Roaz, who is looking pleasant as she makes small talk.
Caption: For one thing, she's a 'Bot.
Caption: Yeah, I know that's a rude term here. The polite word is 'gynoid.'
Caption: Or in Roaz' case, one could get away with saying 'Tin Man.'
Panel 3
Looking past Roaz towards Juan and Diana. Diana is looking cool. Juan is hoping for a big payoff.
Caption: She was a biological human when I first met her, but she managed to get herself killed in a daring effort to 're-program' the Master Processor that rules Zytemonde.
Caption: But people here make digital recordings of their personality and memories, and can 'cheat' death by uploading those recordings into an artificial brain and body.
Panel 4
Closer shot on Diana from the same, angle. She is looking very skeptical.
Caption: This … construct … is legally considered to be a continuation of the living person.
Caption: I have my doubts … but that may be because on my homeworld, Bots are an oppressive ruling class.
Caption: Clearly these machines can't have souls … but then I can't prove I have one, either.
