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
Areum is holding up her right forearm; from the bracelet on her wrist a tiny orb on a post has emerged. Dong explains as Wook and Diana look on.
Dong: A micro-laser, used for communication purposes primarily.
Dong: Since we can't send a radio or q-wave signal, we can use this.
Dong: But only when we are in a line-of-sight with the receiver on the other end.
Panel 2
Looking past the super-flyer at a particularly decrepit structure. A large door is opening.
Caption: A few anxious moments later:
Dong: Ah, good. We are recognized.
Dong: Proceed into the structure, Areum.
Panel 3
The flyer enters a darkened chamber. One can just make out some not-at-all-micro-laser emitters aimed at them.
Diana: Nothing like a warm welcome to make us feel, uh, welcomed.
Dong: Do not take it personally. The Mechanic is very serious regarding security.
Panel 4
Inside the flyer cabin:
Diana: You say 'The Mechanic' like that's a name and not a job title.
Dong: She has other names, but this is the one she is known by ...
Dong: … and for security reasons it is the only one I can give you.
Diana: Seriously?
