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 1631

Panel 1
Krasp, Hugo, Shlack and Murphy, looking very nonchalant.
Hugo: You're back! What did you bring me?
Murphy: I thought that in addition to the pento-matrix slicer, you could use a hermeneutical quantizer and ...
Hugo: … the Varajiana Transducer! I'm glad you thought of it.

Panel 2
Hugo takes the cart and starts pushing it away. Murphy goes with him.
Hugo: With these in my lab I'll be able to fabricate the remaining components in almost no time.
Shlack: How much time is 'no time?'
Hugo: I'll have your new drive up and running in 20 kiloseconds, tops.
Panel 3
Cut to the Dryhaven bridge. Hugo and Murphy flank Shlack as he stands at his station.
Caption: Roughly 40 kiloseconds later:
Shlack: So, gentlemen, we are finally ready to test this Transwarp conduit drive.
Shlack: Assuming there's a conduit access location where Dr. Galvéz indicated.
Panel 4
Exterior view of the Dryhaven with Causa Sui transwarping through the conduit.
Shlack: Is this what the transwarp effect is supposed to look like?
Hugo: Ah, yes, it very much is.
Hugo: You will probably want to take the next exit point and get our bearings.
Panel 5
The navigator reports.
Navigator: We are … more than 25 light-years from our original point. Nearer the Soraxian border, closer to the Core.
Hugo: In 70 seconds. An effective velocity of 11.2 million times light-speed.
Shlack: Unbelievable!
Panel 6
Exterior view. The Dryhaven is confronted by a much larger, ugly, dodecahedron ship.
Navigator (from Dryhaven): Captain!
Shlack: Oh, shit!
