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 is seated at the foot of Seamus' bed, rattling off her story in a non-stop stream of verbiage. Seamus simply stands and looks at her thoughtfully.
Nicole: and Jack's Beltape joke wasn't that funny but it was okay and Nathan had another story but then Danielle said 'hey look!' and everyone looked and it was the Guzmán Burro ad with my face and name on it and then they all turned on me and started grabbing at me and I think Georgeann said she wanted me to have her baby is that even possible? And then the closed in and I thought I was going to get eaten alive so I jumped up and ran as fast as I could
Panel 2
Seamus puts his hand over Nicole's mouth, stopping the deluge.
Seamus: All right, Nicole, calm down, breathe.
Seamus: We can fix this.
Panel 3
Seamus sits on the bed next to Nicole, who is still rattled.
Seamus: I will contact the Captain, and ask him to issue a general order that you are not to be approached without permission.
Panel 4
Two-shot of Seamus and Nicole, Seamus is smiling wryly, Nicole isn't sure whether he's being serious.
Seamus: Although, in fairness you should warn people before invoking the order.
Seamus: I'd hate to see some hapless passenger getting spaced over a misunderstanding.
Panel 5
Seamus touches Nicole's dangling forelock. She pulls back a bit, instinctively.
Seamus: However it would also help if you made yourself a bit less conspicuous.
Seamus: This outlandish forelock of yours is practically a flashing sign.
Panel 6
Medium shot of Nicole – she is pulling back her forelock so as to tie it back with the rest of her curls.
Nicole: Yeah, I suppose I was getting tired of it.
Nicole: And in more than 2 gravs it gets in my way anywho.
Panel 7
Seamus walks back over to his chair. Nicole looks on.
Seamus: It's still too early for dinner but perhaps you'd like to have tea with me while your fans calm themselves down?
Nicole: I suppose … yes, thank you.

Panel 8
Nicole rubs her eyes with the heels of her hands. Seamus is tapping something (their tea order) into the console near his chair.
Nicole: You've been a kind of celebrity for a long time, Seamus. Have you ever had to deal with this?
Seamus: Oh, you have no idea.
