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 view of Murphy's Pockrocket, blazing along.
Murphy (thoughtsend, from inside rocket): I'm in a pockrocket you should be able to see on the ship's radar.
Murphy: I'm on a faster track but right now I'm close enough we can converse.
Panel 2
Cutaway view of the rocket to show Murphy standing in the interior of the shield-cone. There's a rucksack and an overnight bag at her feet.
Murphy (thoughtsend): Although I can change course and rendezvous with Cissonius, with the Captain's permission.
Murphy: And yours, of course.

Panel 3
Cut to Seamus in the Control Deck. He's now sitting on the rear bulkhead, his feet dangling in the hatchway. Bill is looking at him with a puzzled expression.
Seamus (thoughtsend): Murphy, listen carefully: Nicole has been kidnapped!
Seamus: A Pinocchio has taken her to a freighter passing about 5 gigameters abeam.

Panel 4
Medium close-up on Murphy, her jaw set, her eyes narrowed and glowing red.
Murphy (thoughtsend): A Pinocchio?
Murphy: I'd like the position and vector for that freighter, please.
