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.

Quantum Vibe: Nicole - By Scott Bieser w/Zeke Bieser

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 149

Panel 1
Exterior of the shuttle still docked to the Staisiún.
Pilot (from inside the shuttle): We are ready to un-dock.
Seamus (from inside shutttle): Pilot, please hold.
Seamus: Nicole, you should now have an integrated visual interface
Panel 2
Inside the shuttle, looking over Nicole's shoulder at 'Watson.' The display screen shows something like an astrogational display, with a central reticle and various icons. It has a 3-D effect so that the display appears a bit in front of Watson's surface.
Nicole: Yeah, I've got a nav display screen going, not too different from the Helio-Flyer's.
Seamus: Good, good. Now, expand the range out to 100 megameters.

Panel 3
Looking through the 3-D display effect at Nicole peering back into it. A large sphere filling about a third of the space represents Venus. There are tiny icons and arcing lines all about.
Nicole: Geez! Venus has a lot of traffic!
Seamus (OP): Now lay in our course to Ishtar Station and see if any of those vectors intersect.
Panel 4
Side-shot of Nicole on the left looking at her display, and Seamus on the right looking puzzled.
Nicole: Not a one. We're clear all the way to Ishtar.
Seamus: Strange. I was sure I'd find them at this point.
