Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
The interview continues:
Falstaff: Concerning the business climate … how long do you think we can manage under the current rate of closures, before the city collapses?
Da Costa: 'Collapses?' You must be kidding.
Da Costa explains, an image of the original Sphere appears next to him:
Da Costa: When this city was founded, more than three centuries ago, there was just one sphere, and all of twenty thousand pioneers. I know because I was among them.
Da Costa: From that point, we grew.
Da Costa: We could do that again if we had to.
Medium 2-shot again.
Falstaff: So you're not worried about the consequences of this siege?
Da Costa: Of course I'm worried. I've personally lost 20 percent of my net worth, and I'll probably lose a lot more before this is over.
Falstaff and Da Costa. We're pulled back a bit to see the outside edges of the monitor again
Falstaff: Twenty percent?
Falstaff: What do you say to those who've lost their jobs?
Da Costa: See me after this is over and my partners and I will find a way to help them create their own jobs.
