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.

SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go! [ Feb 11, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.

Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.




SubscribeStar update: Not yet [ Jan 31, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.

For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In a lounge empty save for Nicole and Seamus. Nicole is leaning against a railing, looking dejected, as Seamus is walking up to her.
Seamus: Missing your friend Buford?
Nicole: Well, sure I miss her. But that's not the problem.

Panel 2
Switch view to behind Nicole and Seamus she's looking through an observation window at distant Sol. Their conversation continues via thoughtsend.
Nicole: This spaceliner is full of Loonies, Seamus. And did you know the company that owns her is half-owned by a subsidiary of Omega-Tek?
Seamus: Yes, I know.

Panel 3
Switch view back so we can see their faces.
Nicole: There was a Huoxingian ship scheduled for departure two days later than this one.
Seamus: Which would be problematic for Murphy, wouldn't you say?

Panel 4
Exterior view of the ship, the Argosy.
Nicole: She has her manumission docs, and our protection. Are you trying to aggravate me?
Seamus: My choice of conveyance was not about your feelings, Nicole, or Murphy's.

Panel 5
Back in the observation lounge, Nicole faces Seamus confrontationally.
Nicole: Then, what ?
Seamus: This ship the Argosy -- better fit my schedule.
Seamus: But let me assure you, we are in no danger from the crew or passengers here.

Panel 6
Nicole faces Seamus confrontationally.
Nicole: Oh yeah? Convince me.
Seamus: The other half-owner is a subsidiary of GENSAXWAL.
Nicole: GEN-are you shucking kidding me?

Panel 7
Nicole looks thoughtful as Seamus explains.
Seamus: Think about it each entity wants our secret, but also has a powerful interest in not allowing the other entity to get it, either.
Seamus: The two cancel each other out. We're as much on neutral territory as if this ship were owned by L-5ers.

Panel 8
Nicole looks at the zringer on her finger.
Nicole: At least they didn't give me any crat about my zringer.
Seamus: Or your handgun. Things are different out here on the frontier.
