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 161

Panel 1
Seamus and Nicole riding the same elevator they were in shortly after they first arrived at Ishtar Station. They are both looking tired.
Caption: A few uneventful hours later, back at Ishtar Station:
Seamus: Now, for a good 8 hours' rest and we can prepare to meet your mother at Pellucidar.
Nicole: ...
Panel 2
Closer 2-shot of Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Is there a problem?
Nicole: I'm not sure now that I should take you to meet Mother.

Panel 3
The two emerge from the lift into a busy concourse. Seamus is expressing a mix of surprise and mild grief. Nicole looks a bit grim.
Seamus: I beg your pardon?
Seamus: I promise to shower and put on a clean mu-mu.
Panel 4
Seamus and Nicole walk down a corridor.
Nicole: It's not your body odor – which is surprisingly inoffensive, given, well, given the circumstances.
Seamus: Well, that's a relief.
Panel 5
The two approach the entrance to their hotel, the Óstán O'Siodhachain .
Nicole: Maybe it's not your fault, but you attract danger, Seamus.
Nicole: And I don't want to expose my mother to that.

Panel 6
Seamus and Nicole make their way through the hotel lobby. Nicole is looking exasperated.
Seamus: Are you serious?
Nicole: Am I serious? Seamus, first someone tried to kill us on Mercury, and just a few hours ago we were nearly shanghaied by East Terrans, according to your speculation.
Panel 7
Seamus and Nicole walking down a hotel corridor, approaching their rooms.
Seamus: Nicole, believe me, your mother would not be endangered by meeting us.
Nicole: Huh.

Panel 8
At the door to Nicole's room, she's standing just inside the doorway, facing Seamus who is still in the corridor.
Seamus: Let's continue this discussion in the morning when we're both refreshed, eh?
Nicole: All right, Seamus. Good night.
