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
Diana's flyer is moving past us toward a Junction Matrix, which allows egress from one giant bubble to another in Bubbleopolis. Other vessels of varying sizes (but no Bubbs) are entering and leaving various Matrix portals.

Caption: I lived and worked mostly in one of the central, older Bubbles in Bubbleopolis.
Caption: Getting considerably less benefit of the Five Suns' energy than the outer spheres, my home neighborhood abides in perpetual twilight.
Panel 2
Diana's flyer nears an appropriately-sized portal.
Caption: One travels among the spheres via the Junction Matrix, which works on a principle similar to the Displacement Drive.
Caption: Here, you could jump to the adjacent sphere, or entirely across the City. It's all in the code you send to the portal controller.
Panel 3
Diana's flyer emerges from another Matrix and zooms across the sky. Here the lighting is brighter, the colors more vivid.
Caption: My interview subject – Lorelei Wodenstar deClayre – lived in one of the outer spheres.
Caption: Where it was perpetually bright and sunny.
Caption: That shit always gives me a headache.
Panel 4
Diana's flyer arcs in towards a large floating, European-style palace, with considerable landscaping on a wide platform. A few other widely-spaced buildings of differenty styles can be seen floating in the distance.
Caption: deClayre was Hayami's first charge while working for Gianturco Garantia.
Caption: She's also as rich and influential as, well, Alyss Roaz. But definitely with a different taste in architecture.
