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 2278

Panel 1
Silhouetted figure stands over the comatose Jane Doe, on Jane's right side. The figure's hand reaches down towards Jane's shoulder.
Figure (thinking): Cytomax is undetectable in the blood, once it has done its work.
Figure: It produces an instant cytokine storm which stops the heart and chokes off all fluid circulation in the brain.
Figure: Since she's in an induced coma she won't feel anything.
Panel 2
Medium close-up. The figure's hand is pulling Jane's coverlet and gown aside to expose the mediport on her right shoulder. One feed line is attached, but there are two other ports on the device. We should see the hypo-injector in the figure's other hand.
Figure: Normally, an injection site could be detected.
Figure: But here I can dose her through the mediport we installed on her when she arrived.
Figure: So no one will ever know … it will look like a natural death.
Panel 3
Close-up: The figure positions the mediport with her left hand while bringing up the hypo-injector in her right.

Figure: In just a few moments it'll be all over ...

Panel 4
Another, silhouetted hand has moved in from the right grabbed the figure's wrist.
Figure: GAH!
Figure 2: ¡Parada!
