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 awakens to find herself sprawled on a mesh floor in a dark room, under a stark overhead light. She has been stripped to underwear, her zringer gone, and she has those damned bracelets on her wrists and ankles.

Caption: When I awoke, I found myself in a dark space with a solitary light several meters above.
Caption: I'd been relieved of my weapons and most of my clothing but I had these weird bracelets on my wrists and ankles.
Panel 2A (tall)
Diana is standing in the circle of light, shading her eyes as she peers into the black distance
Caption: 'Dark' only begins to describe the place. I looked around in all directions and saw literally nothing.
Panel 2B (tall)
Diana begins walking away from the illuminated circle
Caption: I decided to explore a bit, in hope of finding a door. Or even a wall.
Caption: Before long I could make out another light, far away.

Panel 3A
Diana is in near total darkness, walking gingerly so that she might feel an obstacle or drop before she might put her weight on it.
Caption: When it got too dark to see the floor, I had to go slowly and carefully. I didn't want to fall into some hidden trap.
Panel 3B
As Diana approaches the 2nd light, it begins to look a lot like the place she'd walked away from.
Caption: As I approached this 2nd light, it started to look uncomfortably familiar.

Panel 4A
Diana has stopped, looking over her shoulder. We can see the first light now much smaller in the distance.
Caption: Wondering if I'd walked in a circle, I looked behind me and saw the first light was still there.

Panel 4B
Diana walks under the second light, stepping into an illuminated circle the looked just like the one she'd left.
Caption: There was no way to know whether I was back where I started, or if it mattered.
