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.

Transcript For Strip 740

Panel 1
Three-shot of Hernandez with Ajax and Ashanti seated behind him. Hernandez turns a bit to direct his question to Ajax.
Hernandez: Did you hear that, Ajax? He would throw them under the bus but they would refuse to cooperate, even at the cost of their lives!
Hernandez: What sort of person would make a choice like that?

Panel 2
He turns back to face the prisoners, now smiling warmly. The girls look a bit uncertain.
Hernandez: Someone who uses her reason, who understands that the negation of a value is not a value.
Hernandez: Who cherishes her integrity and refuses to compromise with evil.

Panel 3
Hernandez and Seamus shake hands, and the girls eyes goggle.
Hernandez: You chose your companions well, Old Man.
Seamus: I had them made-to-order, actually. Saves a lot of time.

Panel 4
Now both Nicole and Murphy have moved a bit away from Seamus, regarding him as if seeing him for the first time.
Nicole: What? You're in cahoots with this savage?
Seamus: Nicole, wait
Nicole: Didn't you see that guy in the corridor? He cuts out people's tongues!

Panel 5
Murphy pipes up.
Murphy: He also had one of the ship's officers thrown out an airlock.
Seamus: What, how do you
Murphy: You're not the only one who can hack into the ship's comms.


Panel 6
Hernandez and Seamus, and Seamus looks annoyed.
Seamus: I thought you'd agreed no more executions. What gives?
Hernandez: The scum was a slave-trader and a wife-beater. What else could I do?

Panel 7
Hernandez pauses while the prisoners take a moment to think about it.
No dialog

Panel 8
Now the prisoners respond, in a desultory fashion.
Nicole: Well, it's not like he didn't have it coming.
Seamus: Not really an injustice.
Murphy: Hard to defend someone like that.
