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 780

Panel 1
Looking across the cratered surface of Ganymede. In the distance, a domed city. In the middle-ground, a flying craft the size of a mini-bus approaches.
Caption: On Ganymede:
Murphy (from inside craft): It's five days until our next transport. Why the rush to Romulus Station?

Panel 2
Inside the flying mini-bus, Seamus is in the pilot seat, Murphy to his left. We don't see Nicole yet.
Seamus: I'm anxious to retrieve the data recorded from Nicole's sun-dive.
Seamus: The way this trip's been going, anything could happen while we're here and I want to get the most important reason we're here taken care of.

Panel 3
Murphy and Seamus.
Murphy: You haven't told me yet what this project is all about.
Seamus: Need-to-know, Murphy. It's in the contract. Since your shares are inherited you'll learn all about it when I complete the project.

Panel 4
Medium exterior shot of the flying minibus, zooming through the Ganymedian sky. We see the underside thrusters keeping it aloft in the near-vacuum.
Murphy: Suppose something happens to you, before then?
Seamus: I I suppose that's the end of the project. Nobody else has the know-how to apply the data or the theory involved.

Panel 5
Inside the mini-bus, Seamus smiles wryly at Murphy. She remains expressionless.
Murphy: Without a back-up plan? The other share-holders must be anxious.
Seamus: They know I'm a survivor, Murphy. Also I just don't see any way around this.

Panel 6
Murphy and Seamus. Seamus is getting irritated.
Murphy: It seems to me that getting involved in Jovian politics is not in keeping with your fiduciary duties to ...
Seamus: All right, all right, opinion noted! Can we change the subject?

Panel 7
Murphy turns to look back behind Seamus. We can't see what she's looking at.
Murphy: I'm worried about Nicole. We should have stopped at the local Aine's Spa first, or at least left her there.
Seamus: I need her to help collect the data. This can't be helped.
Panel 8
Medium shot if Nicole, in the seat behind Seamus. She's curled up hugging her knees, eyes glazed.
Seamus: Nicole is a survivor, too. She'll get through this.
Seamus: And I promise she'll see the spa after we get back to Trosberg.
