To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Eithne is seated at the table in the galley, eating from a bowl of popcorn (also a beverage on the table) as she observes Murphy and Hugo off-panel, arguing.
Murphy (OP): You realize at some point soon we're going to have to demonstrate this 'hyperspace slipstream' drive you've made up out of whole cloth, Hugo.
Hugo: I was cornered! I had to come up with something to buy us some time.
Some shot continuing.
Murphy: When they figure out you've lied, they'll never believe anything else we say.
Hugo: I'll find a way to distract them. Or maybe, find a way to fake our way through this?
Murphy: And thus one lie leads to more lies?
Eithne takes a sip of her drink.
Hugo: You know Murphy, this would be easier if you'd help me figure out a solution rather than simply beat me up over this.
Murphy: Oh, so now I'm the problem?
Hugo: I didn't say that.
Eithne munches some more on the popcorn.
Murphy: Then what are you saying?
Hugo: That I wish we weren't arguing about this. We need to work together.
Murphy: Right. You're confident in your own cleverness until you get in a jam and then you need my help.
Eithne still munching on the popcorn, her eyebrows shoot up as she reaches for the glass.
Hugo: You know I got along quite well for five centuries before I met you.
Murphy: Oh, sure, you went insane and murdered 125 million people, then spent four centuries running and hiding.
Hugo: I … we agreed not to discuss that again.
Eithne sips her drink as she glances knowingly at the reader.
Murphy: You're right, I'm sorry.
Murphy: But still, at some point soon we're going to have to demonstrate this 'hyperspace slipstream' drive you've made up out of whole cloth, Hugo.
