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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Exterior shot of the space-yacht Cissonius, a vessel with graceful lines measuring about 50 meters long and 30 meters across her beams. Normal complement is 12 passengers, 3 crew, and 200 tonnes of cargo.
Caption: The Cissonius, from L-5 City.
Voice from yacht: So we're slingshotting-in how close to Jupiter?
Panel 2
Three men standing next to a bar: Seamus, Fred Bellaire, and Nelson Weatherford. Fred is very short and sits on a tall barstool.
Seamus: From Jove's center, 217,000 kilometers. From his cloud-tops, 147,000 kilometers.
Fred: Whee-ooo! That'll be a hot ride.

Panel 3
Three-shot of Seamus, Fred and Nelson.
Nelson: I certainly hope the shielding is up to it.
Fred: Up to it? This baby will gorge on it!
Fred: She's got one-a those new Romãozinho converters that'll charge the engine capacitors fuller 'n a vlogger at a free buffet table.

Panel 4
Reverse view, we see a viewscreen in which Jupiter looms large, beyond our characters.
Fred: When we pull away from Jupiter we'll be movin' like a bat outta hell.
Nelson: It's the 'hell' part I'm worried about.
