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
Still in the examining room -- Nicole, Buford, Dr. Lee. Lee is injecting something into Buford's lower back.
Nicole: So, what now?
Dr. Lee: For the nanites to have their best effect, she should lie still for at least 12 huoke.

Panel 2
Same shot, Nicole is alarmed, Dr. Lee presses a button on a nearby wall console.
Nicole: Twelve huoke! That's almost three hours!
Dr. Lee: We will transport your friend to a recovery room, no problem.

Panel 3
Closer 2-shot on Nicole and Buford.
Nicole: Um, I hope you don't mind if I take Ventura to do some shopping?
Buford: Why should I mind if you have fun while I'm stuck here?

Panel 4
Nicole hands over her personal Screen, which is presently smart-phone sized.
Nicole: Here, you can have my Screen. I've got a ton of vids on it, or you can pull in 'casts from anywhere in the System.
Nicole: I've set it to 'haptic' so you can navigate with the touchscreen.
Panel 5
An orderly (male Beltape) has entered the room, to cart Buford away, as she regards the Screen ruefully. Dr. Lee is pulling a sheet over her exposed torso.
Buford: Thag am grateful for shiny bauble. Thag will make sacrifice to great medicine woman.
Dr. Lee: Please take Ms. Beltrán to recovery room 4.

Panel 6
The orderly and Buford (with her examining table) have exited, leaving Nichole looking despondent, and Dr. Lee.
Dr. Lee: You may settle the account with the front desk now or after you return for your friend.
Nichole: Th-thanks.

Panel 7
Nicole and Ventura emerge from the entrance to the clinic. Nicole is looking sullen.
Ventura: We are just leaving Buford here?
Nicole: She needs three hours for her cure to take. We'll be back to collect her later.

Panel 8
Their taxi rises from the curb into the traffic stream.
Victoria: Is she not supposed to be your bodyguard? How can she guard you now?
Nicole: Aw, don't worry. I have my zringer and I have you, right?
