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
The command deck of the Argosy, Captain Santos, First Mate Mueller, ChiefNav Bartoli. Important there are two large windows to left and right.
Bartoli: We are now entering the 60 Gigameter Jovian perimeter.
Santos: Okay everyone, stay sharp. Scanners on maximum, charge the cannons, combat-bots on stand-by.

Panel 2
Two-shot of Mueller and Santos.
Mueller: Do you really expect trouble? We're a passenger liner, after all.
Mueller: It's not like we're carrying any high-value trade goods, or equipment.

Panel 3
Mueller and Santos.
Santos: No, but we are carrying several high-value passengers.
Santos: Gensaxwal officers, a Lunar Senator, Omegatek muckety-mucks.
Santos: They're supposed to be meeting to resolve the problems on Io.

Panel 4
Looking past Bartoli at Santos and Mueller.
Mueller: Huh. Labor troubles. They should just vacuum the lot of them and bring in fresh workers.
Santos: Recruitment is expensive. I hope they find a less drastic solution. I own some Gensaxwal stock, too.
