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.

IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]

Alyss Roaz thanks you!

A Message From Alyss

So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.

We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.

Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.

Thanks again and click on, me hearties, click on.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1585

Panel 1
In the Engine Control Room, re-establish the scene: Hugo is at one of the monitors conferring with one of the crewmembers, as Captain Shlack, Murphy, Shrash, and Prenk look on.
Shlack: So this transwarp conduit system of yours how fast can it take you?
Murphy: That's difficult to translate precisely, but we can cross 1,000 light-years in less than 400 seconds, although it feels instantaneous.
Panel 2
Three-shot of Prenk looking side-eyes-wide and slack-jawed at Murphy, as Shlack tooks askance.
Prenk: That's in yarons that's more than 100 million times lightspeed!
Shlack: That would be a true game-changer.
Murphy: Then you do see the value of what we're offering you.
Panel 3
In the foreground, Hugo and a crewmember; in the background, Prenk, Shlack, Murphy, Shrash.
Shlack: Assuming your science-officer can deliver.
Murphy: All I can promise is, if it can possibly be done, Hugo will do it.
Murphy: Do you know where the nearest star-system suitable for us is located?
Panel 4
Shlack and Murphy
Shlack: In fact we do it's roughly 41 light-years spinward and a bit south and out.
Shlack: Prenk informs me we can get there in roughly 850 thousand of your seconds, while towing your ship.
Murphy: I'm hoping that as a Soraxian scout ship you know how to avoid contact here in Confederation space.
Panel 5
Shlack, Murphy, Shransh
Shlack: Scout ship? Where'd you get that idea?
Shlack: We're private traders, registered with both the Soraxian Hegemony and the Confederation Trade Council.
Shransh: We deal in resource location, rare botanicals, and information exchange, mostly.
Panel 6
Shlack, Murphy, Shransh.
Murphy: Ah, I see. You're spies.
Murphy: Not that there's anything wrong with that, necessarily.
Shransh: We don't discriminate we'll even deal with K'Tagons.
