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
Alyss is massaging her temples with her fingers.
Alyss: All right, let's assume for a moment that someone has figured out how to work in those extra dimensions.
Alyss: How would something like this be used to circumvent an Oresme Shield?
Dominic: I suppose it could be used as a gateway, like one of our Junction Matrices.
Panel 2
Alyss: And how large would such a gateway need to be?
Dominic: That depends on what you'd want to send through it.
Dominic: If you want to send micro-missiles, the size of a golf ball. If you want to send warships, 100 kilometers across.
Panel 3
Diana, Alyss and Dominic
Alyss: Assume someone is sending a battalion of armored warriors, or ninjas, or mafiosi.
Dominic: In that case, anywhere from 30 to 100 meters, depending on whether it needs to function open or folded-up.
Panel 4
Diana: That still gives us Thousands of possible hiding places here.
Alyss: Is there some way to rig up a device that detects activity in one or more of those extra dimensions?
Dominic: You want me to invent a gadget that can detect the impossible? I could more easily do a belly-flop on a black hole.
