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 440

Panel 1
Distance shot (to re-establish the scene) of Seamus with Nicole and Ventura, with the male and female Guests and their own accessories.
Male Guest: So you've heard that Dr. Sobong claims to have solved the fermionic resonance transferral problem?
Seamus: Yes? I'll believe it when I see it applied to actual fermions.
Panel 2
Closer shot on Seamus and the guests with him.
Male Guest: Of course, he is bound by trade-secrets covenants not to share any details.
Seamus: Naturally. One almost wishes for a return to the old system of patent laws.
Female guest: Almost? Why?

Panel 3
Seamus and the female guest.
Seamus: Well, the idea behind patents was that scientists and inventors could publish information about their processes as they develop them, with the assurance that they'd have a legal monopoly on their application for a limited time.
Female guest: So, what happened?

Panel 4
Seamus and the male and female guests, their accessories circled around them.
Male Guests: It fell to the old nation-states to register and enforce the patents. Naturally they made a mess of things.
Seamus: So when the states collapsed, the consensus was that trade-secrets covenants were preferable.
Seamus: The arrangement has certainly made MY life more interesting.
