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 1545

Panel 1
Cut to the corridor just outside the control room. Hugo is trotting out of the room, with Murphy close behind.
Murphy: What do you mean, 'we're stuck'?
Murphy: You said all systems were on-line.
Hugo: I don't understand it. I need to look at the drive.
Panel 2
In the Engine Room. The Displacement Drive mechanism is an object about the dimensions of a small car, supported by various struts. There's a control console on one side and Hugo is at it, with Murphy behind him.
Hugo: This makes no sense. The indicators are all good.
Hugo: But for some reason the probability-shifter is not engaging with the brane interface.
Hugo: As I said, 'we're stuck.'
Panel 3
Murphy and Hugo.
Murphy: Could that new tech you installed have anything to do with this?
Hugo: Possibly. Or, it could be the result of jumping out of that tractor beam of theirs.
Panel 4
They'e moved around to a different part of the engine. Hugo is removing an access panel.
Murphy: What if you can't get it working again?
Hugo: Then I suppose we'll have to get along with the gravity and fusion drives.

Panel 5
Murphy is dumfounded.
Murphy: Are you serious? How far away is the nearest star system?
Hugo: Oh, there's a red-dwarf system only about six light-years from here.
Hugo: We should be able to reach it in about, oh, eleven years.
Panel 6
Murphy smolders at Hugo.
Murphy: Eleven years.
Murphy: Do whatever you have to, to fix the damn drive.
Hugo: Yes, dear.
