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 745

Panel 1
Close-in shot of Nicole and Moe, squatting on opposite sides of the 'hole' in the large apparatus. Moe is schooling Nicole.
Moe: CRIMINALS? Is that what you think we are?
Moe: Didn't Seamus explain the situation to you?
Seamus (OP): Well, I was about to

Panel 2
Moe enthuses as she explains. Nicole is still looking dubious.
Moe: We're freedom fighters, cousin!
Moe: We struggle against the evil mo-fo Mercorpuscles who have entrapped thousands into slave-labor in the Jovian System.

Panel 3
Angled view that also takes in Murphy and Seamus.
Murphy: And what about the tens of thousands of Arti-folk enslaved by HuoJinGong on Europa?
Moe: A a separate group is working on liberating Europa. I don't really know more.

Panel 4
Two-shot of Murphy and Seamus.
Murphy: Need-to-know rules. Fair enough.
Seamus: Jess is one of the leaders of a guerrilla group seeking to throw off Gensaxwal and Omega-Tek here, just as the Belters threw off J.C. Bucks 148 years ago.

Panel 5
Murphy looks doubtful.
Murphy: The Belters had the advantage of a Mercorp War disrupting and distracting their adversaries.
Seamus: I hope you're not suggesting we start one. Those things are incredibly destructive.


Panel 6
Angled shot so we can see Nicole and Seamus. Nicole squawks.
Nicole: No shuck? Revolutions are destructive, too!
Seamus: Wars for liberation are justifiable, especially where oppression is intolerable.

Panel 7
Two-shot of Nicole and Moe, although Nicole is still speaking OP in Seamus' direction.
Nicole: Says the guy who is dropping his gear and running far from the battlefield.
Moe: I will be on that battlefield and I'm fine with this.
Panel 8
Moe plunges her upper body back into the 'hole' while Nicole looks on, with a thoughtful expression.
Moe: What I don't want is for us not to finish this job in time.
Moe: More working, less talking, please.
