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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

Transcript For Strip 2475

Panel 1
Lorelei does something with her viewer.
Lorelei: Here let me put it up on the large holoscreen…
Kofi (soto voce): Blessed mother of Amanirenas
Panel 2
We see the large holoscreen, with a couple of Pillars’ heads in the foregound. It’s the late, great planet Sharen.
Lorelei: There were … seventeen billion people living rhere.
Lorelei: Only about a million managed to escape before a spreading pyroclastic cloud … overwhelmed them.
Panel 3
Alyss angrily confronts Hugo, some other Pillars in the background also look unhappy. Murphy stands in his defense.
Alyss: HUGO! What have you done?
Murphy: Do you really think Hugo did this?
Hugo: They did this to themselves. With their damned bridge.
Panel 4
Hugo explains, again, as the Pillars consider.
Hugo: They used a dangerous, 8-dimensional technology.
Hugo: It required each end of the bridge be ‘anchored’ in the local gravity well.
Hugo: When I moved the city, the well at this end moved with it.
Panel 5
The Pillars huddle, pondering what they’ve learned.
Alyss: …..
Lorelei: The IGC will think we did this somehow.
Jorge: That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
Enrique: ‘They farked around and found out?’ Hmmm.
Kofi: At least this will discourage anyone building another such bridge.

Panel 6
Alyss turns with a start as Hugo’s hopper fades away. Dominic waves goodbye.
Dominic: Don’t forget to write.
