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
Medium close-up on the Assistant doing surgery on Diana's arm. We can't see Diana's face in this frame. The Assistant has a mask and there's a floating tray with some surgical tools on it.
Assistant: All right, I'm through the dermal layers now, looking at the muscular structure.
Assistant. The local anesthesia field is holding steady. Easy-peasy there, Diana.


Panel 2
Same shot. Now the incision is being held open by what looks like a row of staples.
Assistant: Okay, the retractors are doing their job, I can see the fracture site on the ulna now.
Assistant. Looks like the tracker is integrated into the bone structure.
Panel 3
Same shot. The Assistant is intently focused on her work, a tool in each hand.
Assistant: This means I have to re-break the bone at the union point, to get the foreign object out.
Assistant: Then re-set and install a new unionizer patch.
Assistant: You'll need to wear a cast on this arm for a few days as the patch solidifies into your new bone structure.
Panel 4
Shift angle. The Assistant is still focused on the arm, but now we see Diana's face for the first time. She looks utterly horrified and a bit nauseated.
Assistant: We're more than half-way done.
Assistant: How are you holding up?
Diana: I'm fine.
