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.
The whole gang is in a flying tractor pulling a wagon. Wendy and Bob are on the tractor and the rest are huddled together in a seat-less flying trailer.
Caption: Wendy was gracious enough to let me have my break (and Areum, too). Then we clambered into a rather graceless machine.
Wendy: Sorry to make you ride in the wagon. My mini-bus is in the repair shop.
Diana shades her eyes against the overhead lights as she gazes out over a 'field' of growing victuals extending to a negatively curved horizon. Areum is sitting next to her.
Caption: At least I got to view for real the vast, emerald waves of, uh, ornikale or tomaccoli or whatever that was. I just wished it wasn't so farckin bright.
Areum: Why does Bob make you nervous? He doesn't seem aggressive.
Now we can also see Alyss sitting with the other two. Maybe the backs of the Martello brothers' heads. Alyss responds to Areum's question.
Alyss: I met Diana on a slave world ruled by demented arti-folk, and Bob resembles one of their enforcer-bots.
Alyss: An enforcer flash-fried my hand and was about to kidnap a small group of us when Diana bashed its brains out with a shovel. And so we escaped.
Areum is looking at Diana with a bit of awe. Diana looks uncomfortable. Dominic hooks a thumb at her and is talking to Guido.
Areum: You … never mentioned that.
Diana: I don't like to talk about it.
Dominic: What'd I tell you? Under that meek exterior is the heart of a lioness.
Guido: Hey, you're always lion about the women you like.
