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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
As Nicole and Seamus continue eating, a woman Executive walks by with a pair of diminutive female Associates in tow. Nicole glances sideways at them.
Nicole: The Associates have no wills of their own?
Seamus: They are as beaten-down psychologically as they are physically.

Panel 2
Seamus and Nicole. She's a bit startled by Seamus' question.
Seamus: So, what are you feeling about those three that just walked by?

Panel 3
Seamus and Nicole.
Nicole: I'm not sure why, but something makes me want to like that Exec and kick her associates – despite what I think about their shucked-up caste system.
Seamus: No doubt.


Panel 4
We now see the woman Executive seated at another table with her Associates. Nicole and Seamus can be seen a few meters away. The Executive is programming a food order into the servo-bot.
Nicole: I don't get it.
Seamus: Ideology has limited efficacy in a System with such pervasive communication as even Terrans use. So, a different strategem was employed to keep all the castes obedient to the Executives: pheromones
