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 975

Panel 1
The outer door to the airlock is open, and we see Nicole and Murphy standing inside. Nicole has her SD jacket in enviro-suit mode, Murphy is projecting a simple body-suit, and her ruck-sack.
Murphy: Now remember, there is very little natural gravity outside this airlock.
Nicole: Yeah, between 1.7 and 2.1 centi-gravs.* I've activated the 'Gekko plates' in my boots.
Caption: * 1 'grav' = 1 meter/sec/sec
Panel 2
Nicole and Murphy gingerly walk across the rough, icy/rocky surface.
Nicole: How far until we get to the 'runway?'
Murphy: Another 100 meters. Please keep up, timing will be critical.
Nicole: No kidding.
Panel 3
Nicole listens as Murphy continue their walk.
Nicole: Um, I've been wondering how much of Seamus' memory is in you now?
Murphy: I have all the equations and data he's accumulated regarding the Project.
Murphy: Uploaded during that big smooch yesterday.
Panel 4
Nicole and Murphy.
Nicole: Yeah, I figured that. But, anything else?
Murphy: Pretty much everything that's happened since you two left L-5 City together.
Nicole: I thought there'd be, well, more.
Panel 5
Murphy and Nicole stand before a flat area. Murphy hands the ruck-sack to Nicole.
Nicole: I sense a shift in your personality.
Murphy: We'll have to discuss that later.
Murphy: We're at the runway, and our window starts in 10 seconds. Get ready.
Panel 6
Nicole, now wearing the ruck-sack, has climbed onto Murphy's back, legs wrapped around Murphy's waist, hands grabbing Murphy's breasts.
Murphy: Um ...
Nicole: Sorry, best way I can hold on.
Murphy: Alright, whatever you do, don't move.

Panel 7
Murphy begins running, fast, along the flat surface, leaning far forward. We can see some spikes coming out of her feet, digging into the icy surface for traction.
Murphy: NOW!!!

Panel 8
Murphy launches into space, Nicole clinging to her back.
Nicole (thought): FEEK FEEK FEEK FEEK FEEK FEEK .
