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 91

Panel 1
Nicole's Helio-Flyer and her flotilla are descending towards Mercury's north pole, now about 2km above and downrange from Helios Base. They are thrusting against their angle of descent.
Dispatcher (filtered): Helio-Flyer this is Dispatch, we track your approach at 117 mark 2000 meters.

Panel 2
In the Helio-Flyer cockpit, an extremely wired Nicole keeps her vigil.
Dispatcher: Transfer landing control to base, we'll reel you in.
Nicole: That's a negative, Dispatch.

Panel 3
At the Dispatcher's desk. We can see Seamus leaning by the window, focus is on the Dispatcher who is a lot more annoyed than usual.
Nicole: This is my cortical implant flying this bird. I'm not handing the keys over to anyone, do you copy?
Dispatcher: Listen, kiddo, hand over control or you don't have clearance to land.

Panel 4
In the lower part of the panel, the Dispatcher at his console. In the upper part, in a cameo sub-frame, we see Jake Offenberg. In the upper right, in another cameo, it's Gary Fox.
Jake: Aw, let her land, Enry!
Gary: She's flown right on the beam all the way so far. I think she can handle it.
Dispatcher: You guys are out of your minds.

Panel 5
Seamus leans into the Dispatcher's window a bit, in a conspiratorial pose. Dispatcher just growls at him.
Seamus: Beg pardon, but I think there's a situation here you're not aware of …
Dispatcher: I know my job, Dr. O Murchadha.

Panel 6
In the corridor outside the Dispatcher's window, we see Seamus standing by the window and the Dispatcher peering past him, at the large crowd of people who are assembled there.
Seamus: It seems that a great many people have taken interest in our young helio-flyer …

Panel 7
Looking over the tops of the heads of people in the corridor, at Seamus by the window with the dispatcher looking at the crowd with some alarm.
Seamus: News media, dignitaries, a lot of people are expecting to see our heroine make her landing. It would be rather gauche to disappoint them, don't you think?

Panel 8
Medium close-up on the Dispatcher, barking commands into his console.
Dispatcher: Crash alert! Close hangar blast doors! Emergency crews stand by!
Dispatcher: All other persons clear the hangar immediately!
