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 785

Panel 1
In the shuttlecraft headed back to Trosberg. Now Murphy is driving, while Nicole rides shotgun, and Seamus is in one of the middle-section seats.
Nicole: It's like deja-vu all over again.
Nicole: Seamus can't see, and an android is flying us home.
Murphy: This happened before?

Panel 2
Nicole and Murphy:
Nicole: At Staisin tan, orbiting Venus. Seamus was temporarily blinded by the flash-transfer.
Nicole: We were also confronted by some Wokka-DNG-Hoy nasties.

Panel 3
Angle to show Seamus behind the girls.
Seamus: We don't need to worry about them, out here.
Seamus: Wokka-DNG-Hoy has no presence in the Outer System.
Murphy: Nicole, what about that 'self-induced trance' business?

Panel 4
Medium shot of Murphy, looking tired, explaining.
Nicole: I didn't think I could pull off such a whopper of a lie when we were interrogated by those Omega Tek goons.
Nicole: Not when I knew my bio-functions were also being monitored.
Nicole: So I had to come up with another way to not tip them off.

Panel 5
Nicole and Murphy.
Nicole: Your um meltdown aboard the Argosy gave me an idea.
Nicole: I can tweak the outputs of my implant to induce a dissociated state rendering me incoherent.
Nicole: Apparently, it worked.


Panel 6
Exterior view of the shuttle craft flying over the Ganymedian surface, towards the domed city of Trosberg.
Nicole (from craft): The problem was, once in that state I wasn't able to bring myself out of it.
Nicole: Eventually, I think I'd have fallen into a normal sleep, and awakened later.
Murphy (from craft): But the data-flash snapped you out of it?

Panel 7
Nicole smiles slyly at Murphy, who looks cornered.
Nicole: It was your tongue action, you naughty robot-girl.
Nicole: You know what that does to me.
Murphy: I only meant to provoke an involuntary response, to force your eyes open.
Panel 8
Nicole and Murphy, and we can see Seamus leaning over between the seats.
Nicole: You shouldn't make promises you can't keep, Murphy.
Murphy: I swear that wasn't meant as a sexual advance.
Seamus: Can you two continue this discussion some place I don't have to listen to it?
