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
Establishing shot: Hyperion, from space. We can just see Cissonius arcing in for a landing, looking tiny in the scale.
Caption: The Saturnine moon Hyperion.
Caption: Discovered in 109 B.S.A (1848 C.E.), his unique characteristics discovered by the Cassini probe 158 years later.
Caption: Hyperion is a gigantic, dusty, dirty ball of ice.

Panel 2
A closer-in shot of the moon featuring a cluster of its jagged-edged, deep craters. One crater has something of a plateau next to it, and near the edge of that crater we can see an artificial structure. The structure appears to have spider-like legs reaching out in all directions to anchor itself in the ice.
Caption: Bond-Lassel Station is owned and operated by Lewis & Canter JSC, based in L-5 City.
Caption: The station collects scientific data concerning both Hyperion and the outer reaches of Saturn's trans-Titan space. An associated orbital observatory studies distant Kuyper Belt objects.

Panel 3
Inside the ship-bay, the passengers of the Cissonius disembark onto extended causeway. We see some other ships berthed nearby.
Caption: Because of this station, Muc Ar Foulain, L-5 City's mercorp agency, claims Hyperion as protected under its laws.
Caption: The claim is disputed but at present no other System power has felt inclined to press the issue.

Panel 4
Three-shot of Murphy, Nicole and Seamus walking along the causeway. Something to the side has caught Nicole's eye and she is glancing questioningly at it.
Caption: Of course, political situations can sometimes change overnight.
