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 835

Panel 1
Inside the Quantum Express office, Murphy speaks with the Clerk a young baseline man standing behind the counter. The Clerk is smiling and confident.
Clerk: Can we get something to Hyperion in 68 days?
Clerk: Sure, we can get a package there in let's see 50 days if you want to go fastest way.

Panel 2
Closer shot of Clerk and Murphy.
Murphy: How much does fastest way cost?
Clerk: I need to know how big the package is. What're its mass and dimensions?
Murphy: 72 kilos, 170 by 60 by 90 centimeters.

The clerk eyes Murphy a bit suspiciously. Murphy deadpans.
Clerk: Contents?
Murphy: Me.

Clerk: It raises too many liability issues.
Panel 5
Murphy doesn't give up.
Murphy: Look, I have GOT to get to Hyperion by December 25th.
Muprhy: How do your packages get shipped? There aren't any freighters scheduled that could make it that soon, I've checked.
Panel 6
The Clerk grins slyly at Murphy, who looks doubtful.
Clerk: That's a trade secret, ma'am.
Murphy: No doubt. What will you take for that secret? I'll sign non-disclosure and non-compete if you insist.

Now the Clerk looks a bit more bashful. Murphy is taken aback.
Clerk: Well, um I don't have a girlfriend these days, and you're quite beautiful.
Clerk: How about a date?
