Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
Shlack leads Hugo and Murphy through a passageway. Shransh and Prenk bring up the rear.
Shlack: Perhaps the best place to start is with our power distribution system.
Hugo: That would offer a convenient orientation, yes.
They enter a control room with several monitors in front of the ship's power core assembly. A crewman has been watching the monitors and is turning to look at the newcomers.
Shlack (to crewman): As you were, Krasp.
Shlack (to Hugo): This is central engineering, and our power core.
Shlack: All power generation and distribution is monitored and controlled from here.
As Hugo studies one of the monitor panels, he braces one hand against the edge of a console, as Shlack and Krasp look on. We can see the 'system cracking' effect on the side of the console but Shlack doesn't.
Shlack: Our power core works by injecting anti-matter ions …
Hugo: ... into suspended micro-singularities, and harvesting the resulting gravitons.
Hugo: Not a bad system, if you don't mind the risk of getting your ship sucked into a pinpoint.
