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.

SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go! [ Feb 11, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.

Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.




SubscribeStar update: Not yet [ Jan 31, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.

For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Dr. Sharkisian stands behind her furry assistant, who is working at the rejuv-vat control console.
Assistant: Re-quickening sequence now complete, Doctor.
Sharkisian: Okay, let's see what we've got.

Panel 2
Shot of Seamus' rejuv vat, Seamus is sitting up, so covered in goo that we can hardly recognize him. Dr. Sharkisian stands by, holding a Screen – the scene looks a lot like the one where Nicole rose from her medi-vat.
Sharkisian: Good afternoon, Dr. O'Murchadha. Can you hear me?
Seamus: {cough!}

Panel 3
Angle shot so that we see Seamus' goo-covered head and shoulders in foreground right, Dr. Sharkisian in middle ground left.
Sharkisian: Your vital signs are all looking good.
Sharkisian: Let's get you cleaned up and then I need to fill you in on what happened.
Seamus (croaking): What … happened?
Panel 4
Seamus starts walking through a Cleen Brane – we just barely see his outlines pressing into the screen, his nose and one arm has made it all the way through, but we can already tell he's no longer walrus-shaped. Sharkisian walks around the Brane, still holding her Screen.
Sharkisian: You had some … very rude visitors the second day of your treatment.
Sharkisian: If you'd warned me about your security situation I could have been better prepared.


Panel 5
Sharkisian hands a robe to Seamus – all we see of him is a silhouetted shoulder and arm
Sharkisian: They tried to pull you out of your vat, which probably would have killed you.
Sharkisian: We stopped them, but the interruption forced us into a more extensive treament regimen.
Seamus: How long?

Panel 6
Sharkisian and Seamus – we see Seamus from behind, donning his robe. His hair is now white and flowing, rather than brown and curly.
Sharkisian: It's been 10 days, O'Murchadha
Seamus: TEN DAYS! Nicole must be beside herself. I should call her.

Panel 7
Medium shot of Sharkisian, holding her hand out towards Seamus.
Sharkisian: Yes, well, before we go into that, let me introduce you to someone.
Sharkisian: Let's step over here.

Panel 8
Seamus stands before a full-length mirror. This is the reveal of the new Seamus. Still very tall, but no longer grossly obese, with long, flowing white hair and and more angular facial features.
Seamus: By the gods! I daresay I've lost more than 50 kilos.
Sharkisian: One hundred seventeen. Hope you don't mind.
