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 1984

Panel 1
Alyss, Sergio, and the Martello Siblings are gathered around Carlos, the aforementioned minion, who is referencing images on a holoscreen behind him. The images consist of a diagram of the original hyper-cubexahedron in its opened configuration, plus a bunch of lines and arrows and symbols and text.
Carlos: We were in fact working in three extra spatial dimensions, trying to create a new kind of portal system.
Sergio: To get around the city's Oresme shields?
Panel 2
Closer focus on Carlos, who is looking defensive but still cowed.
Carlos: Well, no … that is, sure, it might be used that way.
Carlos: But, well, most of us were just in it for the experimentation, to see if Royce's theory could be made to work.
Carlos: I'm not interested in politics.
Panel 3
Looking past Carlos at Alyss & co.; Alyss and Sergio look annoyed, the Siblings look intrigued.
Carlos: Um … anyway, all we've accomplished so far is to create thousands of little 'pocket universes' within the Portal device.
Carlos: Ranging in size from a few meters to almost a kilometer across, they can only be accessed, ironically enough, via a Murphy-engine breach.
Carlos: Not exactly what we expected, as you might guess.
Panel 4
Medium close-up on Alyss and Sergio staring at each other in alarm.
Carlos: Until we can figure out how to use these pockets as portals, I'm afraid … ah … some of them are being used for other purposes.
Carlos: I-I think DeCastries … um … is keeping your friend Diana Martelli in one of them. I swear I don't know which.
