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 1791

Panel 1
Juan is seated in a chair in a darkened room, with a single overhead light spotlighting him. He has a collar around his neck and metal cuffs on his wrists and ankles. He is looking around, assessing his situation.
Caption: Eventually the intruders carried Juan out and what we think happened afterward was pieced together from various sources. Not all of them reliable, and there are gaps.
Caption: Juan regained consciousness in an interrogation room, with restraining collar and cuffs. His zringer was gone, of course, and the room was shielded against any radio distress call.
Panel 2
Juan is confronted by a shadowy figure we only see from the shoulders down throughout this scene.
Caption: After a while:
Shadowy Figure: I am reassured that you are uninjured, however inconvenienced, Señor Gómez.
Juan: What … what do you want?
Panel 3
Juan squints up at the Figure, against the overhead light.
Shadowy Figure: We know you are investigating the unsolved murder of Hayami the gynoid, and Alyss Roaz is paying you.
Juan: Don't believe everything you read on Livro Espacial.
Figure: This is no time for jokes, Señor Gómez.
Panel 4
The restraining collar suddenly closes on Juan's neck and throws his head back. He grimaces in pain. (The studs on the collar light up indicating it is powered)
Juan: {UURRK!}
Shadowy Figure: I'm pressed for time and not in the mood for socializing.
Shadowy Figure: We want to know two things: How much you've learned, and where we might find your assistant.
