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.

Panel 5
Focus on Seamus. He has to think a moment about how old he is.

Hari: I can get you an exclusive tour of the Davis caverns, of the Jones-Hardesty campus, of ...

Panel 8
Nicole pulls her arm away, not too forcefully, but unmistakably signaling her feelings.
Nicole: Thanks, Mr. Copperton, but no thanks.
Nicole: I – when I go exploring, I like to go solo. Less arguing that way.
Hari: Of course.
