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 960

Panel 1
Re-establish the scene of Johanna presenting her case before the assembly.
Johanna: Our documentation and witness depositions had successfully established Farnsworth as instigator of the First Calamity, at the very least ...
Johanna: And furthermore that he had later lived as Benedito Fernandes, and then Stanley Freeman, and had migrated to Luna.
Panel 2
One of the attending rejuvenators, looking much older now, being interviewed by a pair of CoA agents.
Caption: 'The trail had gone cold for the better part of three centuries. Many C. of A. agents resigned, but a persistent few pushed on, following any lead.
Caption: 'Finally, we got a break when one of the fugitive's rejuvenation team, long retired and nearing death himself, came forward in 523.'
Panel 3
The CofA agents, with some more of their fellows, in an intense conference.
Caption: 'By this time of course Seamus O'Murchadha had become widely famed as a great inventor, benefactor, and political liberator.
Caption: 'We knew that any case we made against him would have to be unassailable.'
Panel 4
Flashback continues as we see Johanna, wearing her C.ofA. Robe, being sworn-in during a ceremony.
Caption: 'As it happened I had recently joined the order myself, after I learned that some of my own family had been killed while visiting Jerusalem as tourists.
Caption: 'I felt it my duty to honor that legacy.'
Panel 5
Johanna chatting flirtatiously with Seamus at a bar. Seamus is still normal height, but older-looking than we'd just seen him previously.
Caption: 'I made contact with him at a science conference, and despite his age, or perhaps because of it, found it easy to work my way into his confidence.'
Caption: 'Our engagement was a ruse, of course, to learn as many secrets about him as I could.'
Panel 6
Back to the present, Johanna is doing something with her Screen as she speaks.
Johanna: 'My assignment to this station served to lure him out here where he could be safely arrested.'
Johanna: 'I am now releasing all pertinent documentation to the public domain, so that all may verify the veracity of my claims.'

Panel 7
Switch view to show Murphy, fingers pressed to her temple to indicate she is receiving transmitted data. She looks confounded. Antigone is also in the frame, seen from behind.
Antigone: Does the accused or his advocate have a response?
Murphy: I I
Murphy: Not at this time.

Panel 8
Switch view to show Antigone, Seamus and Murphy. Antigone is somewhat startled, Seamus looks defeated, Murphy is alarmed.
Seamus: Oh, what's the use.
Seamus: It's true, most of it. I am, or was, Theophilus Farnsworth.
Murphy: Seamus! NO!!
