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.

In the control cabin aboard the station, Nicole and Murphy regard their monitors.
Nicole: We're getting a hail. It's from Antigone.
Murphy: Ignore it.
Nicole: Agreed.
Panel 2
Back on Stone's ship, Stone is looking at her personal screen, as Diamondi looks on and Socrates remains on the wall screen.
Diamondi: Well -?
Stone: No response to our hails.
Socrates: I've plotted their course It looks like they're going to thread the Colombo gap in the C-Ring.

Stone: That's rather ballsy. Maybe it is Oresme and Murphy.
Socrates: This will take them on a hyperbolic path around Saturn towards the inner system.
Panel 4
Diamondi interjects.
Diamondi: Yeah, great. Can you stop them?
Socrates: At this distance, we can alter course to intercept them
Socrates: After they've made it around Saturn.

Panel 5
With Diamondi glaring intently over her shoulder, Stone shrugs resignedly.
Stone: Very well, plot the course and execute.
Stone: In the meantime, keep trying to hail them.
Stone: Perhaps they'll listen to reason eventually.

The screen now shows a live view of the errant station approaching the Colombo Gap in Saturn's ring, as Stone and Diamondi look on.
