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
Nicole and Seamus, with their luggage at their feet, stand outside the door to Nicole's stateroom, looking into it. The stateroom is very small – more like a slot tall enough to stand in, with a bed on one side and a wash basin on the other.
Nicole: Are you kidding?
Nicole: The bathroom in my apartment is bigger than this.
Panel 2
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus, still in the corridor.
Seamus: I'm sorry about this, but I'd reserved a larger room for both of us previously.
Seamus: When we decided to go with separate rooms, these … smaller rooms were the only ones left.
Panel 3
Nichole steps into the room, her bag following. Seamus remains outside the door.
Nicole: I guess it'll have to do. For sleeping, anyway.
Seamus: You're welcome to spend the day cycle with me in my stateroom.
Panel 4
Nicole grins back at Seamus, who is looking back at her askance.
Nicole: That's okay. There are several lounges on board.
Nicole: I'll be in one of them most of the time I'm not sleeping.
Panel 5
Seamus is not looking happy.
Seamus: It would be better if you limited your drinking.
Seamus: I don't wish to be a Pelosi, but you are my assistant and I may have need of you from time to time.
Panel 6
Medium shot of Nicole, tapping a finger to her temple.
Nicole: Gotcha boss. I'll stay sober … well, mostly.
Nicole: And if you need me, just call me on our direct line.
Panel 7
In the hallway, Seamus begins walking away, his luggage following. Nicole sticks her head out her doorway after him.
Seamus: Please join me for dinner at 1900, in my stateroom, will you?
Nicole: Still playing hermit? Suit yourself.

Panel 8
Exterior shot of the Dejah Thoris, pulling away from Ishtar Station.
Nicole: After what we've been through, I'm looking forward to a relaxing 4-week cruise.
