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 1
Nicole, Buford and Ventura enter a large building under a sign reading (in both languages) "TUBE STATION"
Buford: Why don't we take our limo to Xin Rizhao?
Nicole: Because I had to send it back to the Po estate for Seamus to use.
Nicole: Besides, this should be interesting.

Panel 2
The trio stands in a short queue before a ticket kiosk.
Buford: Is t'at 'interesting' as in, 'oh, cool,' or as in, 'oh, crat'?
Nicole: Well, I _think_ it will be cool.

Panel 3
At the ticket kiosk, Nicole peers at the monitor listing fares, and puts some dime-sized coins into the receptacle..
Nicole: Hm. Three fares to Xin Rizhao, comes to 4 yinke.
Ventura: Do you need me to go with you? You could return me to the rental shop.

Panel 4
The trio walks away from the ticket counter, Nicole, holding a small plastic fob, blushes a bit as she answers Ventura.
Nicole: Well, Seamus paid for three days, so we should get his money's worth.
Nicole: And besides, we may have to stay overnight and ... I might have nightmares again.
