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: Château Périlleux - By Scott 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.

Transcript For Strip 157

Panel 1
Inside the shuttle, the Pilot, Nicole and Seamus.
Pilot: The gravitic sensor shows the bogey has stopped accelerating, and now we're pulling away at 90 meters per second.
Seamus: Nicole, I think you can safely lower the laser shield now.

Panel 2
Pilot, peering at his console.
Pilot: I can see it now on the aft viewer.
Pilot: It's a Huweijian Wu-nian-class ship … and it looks completely inert.

Panel 3
Exterior of the shuttle – the laser shield is gone, the EM-shield is so large we can't see it in the frame. The bogey is now barely visible in the background.
Seamus (from shuttle): All right Nicole, I think we can safely kill the EM-shield now.
Nicole: Dropping EM-shield.

Panel 4
Shuttle interior, Pilot gazes at his console as Seamus looks on.
Pilot: I'm getting a radar reflection consistent with that class of ship, but ...
Pilot: There's no other energy signature. All of her systems are dead.
