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 1753

Panel 1
The vortices showcase different configurations of Plancktronic Brain with tags indicating class: Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, Class 4, Class 5.
Scarlett: Positronics remained the basis for automated, single-purpose service drones, which we call 'autobots,' or simply, 'bots.'
Scarlett: But as the Plancktronic technology progressed, brainframes developed in five different directions, becoming Classes numbered 1 through 5.
Panel 2
Another cartoon-diagraphic depicting a central brain controlling an atmsophere factory.
Scarlett: Classes 1 and 2 are designed for administering complex operations, such as a star-liner or an atmosphere factory. They have no personality, therefore no person-hood.
Scarlett: They exist for a specific purpose, and when you ask them they'll tell you they prefer having a pre-set purpose rather than needing to figure one out.
Panel 3
Now Scarlett floats next to a very large water vortex containing an image of Huoxing.
Scarlett: During this time humans mostly from ancient China were terra-forming Terra's neighboring planet, which they called Huoxing.
Scarlett: Arti-folk were manufactured in abundance as a labor force, but since the Chinese did not regard them as persons deserving of rights, they became a slave class.
Panel 4
Scarlett floats in front of an diagrammatic image depicting the expansion of humanity from the Milky Way Galaxy. We can see a cameo of Murphy in an inset.
Scarlett: But, many of the Class 3, 4 and 5 arti-folk escaped to Luna or L-5 City, where they were accorded full personhood status, and thrived. One of these co-invented the Discontinuous Displacement Drive, which enabled humanity to spread across the universe.
Caption: ...and also was the concubine to Terra's most notorious mass-murderer. But they won't bring that up.
