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.

Transcript For Strip 294

Panel 1
Sharkisian and the PA looking at the control monitor, as the PA points to it.
PA: See here? And here?
PA: And look at those telemeres.
PA: How old is this O Murchadha, really?
Panel 2
Two-shot of Sharkisian and the PA, Sharkisian assumes an authoritative pose.
Sharkisian: You know our code of ethics demands that we respect our patients' right to privacy.
PA: How can we give the best treatment to our patients if we don't have accurate information?
Panel 3
Sharkisian rolls her eyes.
Sharkisian: {sigh} Very well, let's assume the patient is really 500 years old, more or less.
Sharkisian: Set up the Bawerk-Simpson protocol, and administer as we would a 10-day follow-up treatment.
Panel 4
The PA, at her console. Sharkisian has turned to walk away and waves off her question.
PA: Yes, doctor.
PA: Oh, there's a note here that if the treatment is to run longer than 5 days, to inform the patient's, um, adjutant. Shall I --?
Sharkisian: I'll take care of that.

Panel 5
Cut to: Rando and Nicole at their table in Club Leykis. As Philbert continues his set, the phone in Nicole's head is ringing.
Philbert (OP): I know you think you heard me, but what you heard was not my heart ...
SFX: [musical notes]
SFX2: BRRINNGG
Nicole: Hang on, my Tel is ringing.
Panel 6
Nicole is holding both hands over her ears, having difficulty 'hearing' her Tel through Philbert's din.
Philbert (OP): Heart and head are out of whack, at least until I can get you back ...
SFX: [Musical notes]
Nicole: What? Who? I can't hear you. I'm at a concert. Sort of.
Panel 7
Nicole has gotten up and is walking away from the table, leaving a discomfited Rando.
Philbert: Back back, won't you come back, won't you come back my love ...
SFX: [musical notes]
Nicole: Hang on a minute, I need to find a quieter place.

Panel 8
Nicole stands in a corner in the club's lobby.
Nicole: Okay, that's better.
Nicole: No, no bother, I was just getting my brain sand-papered.
