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 414

Panel 1
The quartet emerges from the Apothecary shop. Buford, now wearing her visor, is holding a small pill-bottle and examining it.
Nicole: Feeling better, Buford?
Buford: I t'ink so.
Buford: Chinese writing sure packs a lot of words in a small space.
Panel 2
The quartet moves up the street, focus on Nicole and Seamus.
Nicole: So, now back to the designer's?
Seamus: He likely won't be ready for us for another hour. Let's get some lunch first.

Panel 3
They pause near the entrance of a restaurant named (in Mandarese) The White Lion. Seamus is peering at a smaller sign near the entry door.
Buford: What about this place? It smells yummy.
Seamus: It does, but I'm afraid this place isn't for us.
Nicole: Why not?

Panel 4
From Buford's POV, Seamus is pointing to the small sign. The visor provides an English translation in a pop-up bubble: Beltapes Not Welcome. And to drive the point home, a small graphic of a Beltape profile overlaid by the familiar circle-with-slash 'prohibited' symbol.
Nicole: Oh.
