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
Cut to, establishing shot of Johanna's quarters. Johanna and Seamus are in the bed, under the sheets, in post-coitus repose.
Caption: A few hours after dinner:
Seamus: {sigh} Johanna, my darling ...
Johanna: I know that tone, Hunky-Bear.
Johanna: What's bothering you?

Panel 2
Medium close-up on Seamus and Johanna.
Seamus: Oh, well, I don't understand why you were so rude to Murphy this evening.
Johanna: The gynoid? I well I'm sorry, Seamus.
Johanna: I've never felt comfortable around arti-folk which are so realistic.

Panel 3
Seamus and Johanna.
Seamus: You mean so close to human-looking?
Johanna: That's it. Arti-folk like Tatiana and Landon are fine, but they're not meant to simulate you know
Johanna: You don't think I'm a bigot, do you?

Panel 4
Seamus and Johanna snuggle up together.
Seamus: No, I don't. I think it's just the 'uncanny valley' effect getting to you.
Johanna: Well, in a few more days it won't matter.
Johanna: Good night, lover.
Seamus: Good night, my sweet.
