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 1085

Panel 1
Boneheads 4, 3 and 1 in the frame, Bonehead 4 is speaking.
Bonehead 4: As your escapade in East Terra illustrated, you have created a weapon against which there is no defense.
Bonehead 4: Your Murphy Drive can instantly transport anything, anywhere, with destructive effects.
Panel 2
Medium shot of Bonehead 5, with Bonehead 2 in the frame.
Bonehead 5: One could transit a nuclear bomb into the 'Bloid, or inside a Lunar City dome.
Bonehead 5: Or send a massive asteroid crashing into any target from point-blank range.
Bonehead 5: Or less spectacularly, a grenade into the bedroom of a personal adversary.
Panel 3
Two-shot of Li and Nicole looking on sadly as Bonehead 1 continues.
Bonehead 1 (OP): Since the transits are un-traceable, even 'mutually assured destruction' doctrine won't work.
Bonehead 1: Not that it worked so well four centuries ago, as we all know.
Panel 4
Bonehead 1, flanked by 2 and 3. Bonehead one's demeanor softens into one of sympathy.
Bonehead 1: We know this was not your intent. You were trying to open new frontiers for humanity, with the hope of avoiding the pressures that lead to warfare.
Bonehead 1: But we have to consider all the angles.
Panel 5
Two-shot of Li and Nicole, Li stands and speaks in a confrontational tone.
Li: Well, while you're deciding what to do with us here's another angle for you to consider:
Li: The East Terrans now know that somebody has teleportation technology.
Panel 6
Li facing the Boneheads.
Li: Furthermore, since L-5 City is usually in the forefront of technological innovation, this is the first place they're going to look to find who's responsible.
Li: They might even find a way to replicate the drive, given enough time.
Panel 7
Medium shot of the 3 lead Boneheads.
Bonehead 2: Please, Mr. Situ, we have no intention of restraining or harming you and Ms. Oresme. We are not like the other mercorps.
Bonehead 2: You came to us, seeking assistance, remember?
Bonehead 2: But we are hoping you could suggest a solution to this problem.
Panel 8
Li and Murphy suddenly turn in their seats to look in surprise at the person speaking behind them.
Voice: Well, if they can't, then I believe I can.
