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 755

Panel 1
They are gathered around a blank wall space. Seamus is enlarging his Screen, 'Watson,' to as wide as his arms will spread as he places it against the wall. About two meters to the left, Moe is doing something similar with her own personal Screen.
Nicole: We can't run the ship from the control deck?
Hernandez: It's been locked down, in an attempt to prevent us from doing what we're about to do.

Panel 2
Seamus stands next to the enlarged Watson now mounted on the wall. It shows an array of control interface graphics, a navigation display, etc.
Seamus: Fortunately it was not difficult for me to bypass the controls system and set up an auxilliary control interface in Watson, here, and in Moe's Screen.

Panel 3
Looking at the group from the POV of a fly on the wall just above the screen. Hernandez is pointing at part of the Screen. Angled so we can also see Moe standing in front of her enlarged Screen.
Hernandez: There's the Jalopy, just now reaching station at 5 klicks.
Moe: The EM-shield is ready to activate on your command, Captain.

Panel 4
The control cabin of the Jalopy. Ajax and Rukmini in twin seats. They're both looking at a monitor which has a magnified image of the Argosy.
Rukmini: Did Jess explain how they were going to sneak that behemoth in to our hangar?
Ajax: Not exactly, but I think we're about to find out.

Panel 5
Similar shot, zoomed in a bit, with the Argosy suddenly missing from the view.
Ajax: What?
Rukmini: Where'd it go?


Panel 6
Now the monitor screen fills the panel. We can see a bit of a circular distortion pattern in the starfield, a bit larger than the area that had been filled by the ship.
Ajax: Wait what's that distortion?
Rukmini: Yeah, it must be some kind of invisibility field.

Panel 7
Back aboard the Argosy, the gang crowds around Watson on the wall.
Hernandez: And now we can't see the stars, or communicate with the Jalopy.
Seamus: Yes. An impenetrable barrier in both directions.
Seamus: Fortunately we can still navigate by means of my enhanced mass-detector.
Panel 8
Focus on the females Moe is excited, Nicole is blas.
Seamus: See there? That's the Jalopy, now moving away.
Moe: A mass-detector you can navigate with? Wow!
Nicole: Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
