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.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1471

Panel 1
Eithne is lounging in her own quarters, sipping a drink and gazing at a holographic screen being projected on the wall next to her bed. In the center we see a blue-green-white, Terra-like world. Two small moons also in the frame. All are in quarter-phase.
Eithne (thought): Might as well spend the time looking around this star-system.
Eithne: Hmmm. That's the planet those transmissions are coming from.
Eithne: Looks a lot like Gabriola or the way Terra used to.

Panel 2
Closer focus on the holoscreen, with Eithne visible in the lower left. The screen shows a diagram of the double-star system.
Eithne (thought): So, two class-G stars, orbiting not quite 300 gigameters apart.
Eithne: Two asteroid belts, one of them a 'figure-eight' like the Alpha Kentauri system's.
Eithne: One small, rocky world orbiting very close to the larger star ...

Panel 3
Medium shot of Eithne, looking bored already.
Eithne (thought): Nine more planets orbiting both stars, from 720 gigs to 15.5 terameters out from the barycenter.
Eithne: The target planet is the innermost the weather must be quite interesting.
Eithne: I wonder what that world's people call their home.
Eithne: Probably something like 'pbbt-pfft-plfft-ptdb.'
