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.

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.
