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.

Quantum Vibe: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 773

Panel 1
Just the girls in the monitor room now. Murphy and Nicole stand behind Pandora who is seated at her station.
Murphy: You have mapped the entire Jovian Subnet.
Nicole: Using the enemy's infrastructure to meet your own needs.

Panel 2
Switch view so we can see the girls' faces.
Nicole: But how do you link unless you become a node?
Nicole: And once you're a node, how do you avoid detection?
Pandora: We use a virtual node, distributed across the network on an encrypted block-chain.

Panel 3
Pandora explains:
Pandora: It's an old secure-comm software plug-in from before the Calamities, called 'FreeSpeechMe,' based on a protocol called 'Namecoin' for reasons I'm not clear about.
Pandora: Dr. O'Murchadha re-discovered it and updated it for our needs.

Panel 4
The girls share smiles.
Nicole: Pre-Calamies? 'Software plug-in?' Not even Seamus is that old.
Murphy: I imagine he found a document describing it in some ancient archive on Luna.
Pandora: The man is a walking wikipedia solaria.
