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 146

Panel 1
Nicole and Seamus glide through a passageway into the Staisiún Étaín. They propel themselves via hand-rails placed at intervals along the walls.
Nicole: To bad we have to rush through this.
Nicole: I would've liked to look at the gear they have here – it's supposed to be state-of-the-art.
Panel 2
Nicole and Seamus emerge into a larger compartment and are met by an android who looks vaguely like a Buddhist monk.
Monk: And indeed it is, Ms. Oresme.
Monk: I am called Monk.
Monk: Perhaps we can arrange a tour?
Panel 3
Monk rotates to orient himself 'upward' and glides away. Nicole and Seamus turn to follow him.
Seamus: I'm afraid we're on a tight schedule.
Monk: Your reservation is on file, Dr. O Murchadha. Please follow me.
Panel 4
Monk leads Nicole and Seamus past a space full of gadgetry. Nicole looks like a kid in a candy store.
Seamus: The data has been recorded and sealed as instructed, yes?
Monk: All solar data from the time-stamps you provided.
Panel 5
They enter a room with a bank of shallow, numbered booths, inside each of which are a pair of hand grips, and what looks like stereoscopic viewers attached to a larger machine..
Monk: You are set up for booths 1 and 2.
Seamus: Thank you, Monk. Nicole, please take booth 1.

Panel 6
Seamus and Nicole are now in the booths, their faces pressed against the stereoscopes.
Nicole: How does this work?
Seamus: A high-frequency micro-burst into the ocular receptors that came with your implant.
Seamus: Nearly a teraquad of data transferred in one second.
Panel 7
Same shot, but now the data is being transferred. There is a bright flash seen around the edges of the stereoscopes. Nicole and Seamus are jolted.
SFX: FLASH!
Nicole: Guh!
Seamus: Gah!

Panel 8
Nicole and Seamus fall back a bit in the weightlessness, looking disoriented and with white pupils.
Seamus: Mind you, there is a temporary disorienting effect.
