Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Camera three-shot of Byron, Lorelei and Diana, focus on Byron, anxious to regain the narrative.
Byron: Well, beltape issues are a topic for another show.
Byron: Now, Diana has been under virtual house-arrest at Lorelei's home because Smith&Holder are still pursuing her, as a 'person of interest' in the disappearance of Juan Gómez, the private investigator she works for.
Byron: Even after Gómez has recently re-appeared, albeit a bit worse for wear, I should say.
Diana makes her plea as the others look on.
Diana: Juan is not just my employer, he's my mentor and my friend.
Diana: Now he's in the médico but I don't know what condition he's in and I can't visit him without getting grabbed and maybe thrown in a cage with that bone-breaking, uh, agent.
Diana: And my home was wrecked and all S&H cares about is where I spent the night.
Byron and Diana as Lorelei looks on. Byron is making a signaling gesture with one hand.
Byron: But you've told us you're willing to step forward and resolve this, yes?
Diana: That's right, Byron. I want to present myself before the agency and answer their questions truthfully.
Byron: And there's no time like the present, right?
Medium shot of the trio, still on their chairs (and on the platform), now on a plaza in front of an imposing structure with the sign, 'Smith & Holder Resolutions' engraved over the entrance. Byron is whooping it up. There are three floating camera-bots, recording them, and three figures – Dong Gyeon-Hoon, Areum, and another rather stout female dressed similarly to Areum, standing by.
Byron: I daresay, huzzah, y'all!
