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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
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.
