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 1372

Panel 1
Alyss pops into the Central Intelligence's encounter room. We see the Master Processor on a monitor screen.
Master Processor: WHAT!! Identify yourself!
Alyss: My name is Alyss Roaz and I have come alone and unarmed as a show of good faith.
Panel 2
The Master Processor looks Alyss over as she stands before him.
MP: We recognize you, Alyss Roaz.
MP: You are an invader and you have caused us great harm.
Alyss: I have now come to parley. I can help you.
Panel 3
Looking from the MP's POV at Alyss.
MP: Help us? How?
Alyss: With each generation, a certain small percentage of your people are problematic for you. Willful and disruptive.
Alyss: You must expend precious resources dealing with them.
Panel 4
The MP sneers at Alyss.
MP: We have managed to deal with them well enough. The cost is manageable.
Alyss: Ah, but it would be more efficient if we could simply arrange to transport them off-world, would it not?
Alyss: I can remove them to another world more amenable to their troublesome temperaments.
Panel 5
Medium shot on Alyss. We see a shadow on the wall behind her.
MP (OP): As you have no doubt noted, our population has been declining. You propose to accelerate that decline? This is NOT helpful!
Alyss: Ah, well, you know, I can't solve every problem. But perhaps with resources freed up you can find a solution?
Panel 6
Hiyami has sneaked up behind Alyss and grabs her by her upper arms.
MP: We think we have a better solution.
Alyss: HEY!!
