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.
Background switches to show the arbitrators: Andrews, Sandini, Feingold. Andrews looks completely laid back, maybe playing with a yo-yo. Sandini is all solemn. Feingold looks bored.
Bok (in cameo): De Castries and Roaz agreed for three of the most celebrated Arbiters in the city to render decisions: Harcourt Andrews, Wilson Sandini, and Jed Feingold.
Andrews: … so, we've reviewed the petitions and agreed to consolidate the various cases into Roaz et al vs de Castries et al.
Sandini: So mote it be.
Feingold: Let's get on with this.
Bok narrates from a cameo as de Castries' advogado, Abraham Miller, addresses the bench. Miller is a 'Tin Man,' an android with the memories and personality of a once-living human.
Bok: De Castries and company were represented by the highly-respected Advogado, Abraham Miller.
Miller: Alyss Roaz has unleashed an outrageous wave of violent assaults culminating in the vicious attack on de Castries' domain resulting in 27 casualties, with two requiring resurrections.
Miller: Also, an estimated 15.72 kilomoebits in property damage.
Miller continues. We can see Diana in the background, looking at him with an icy glare.
Miller: As a cover for her scheme, Roaz contracted with this young, inexperienced, so-called 'investigator,' to snoop around sowing discord and suspicion against a respectable beneficencia, Républicains Pour La Démocracie.
Miller: But don't let that sweet young face fool you … this woman is a vicious killer.
Miller jabs a finger for emphasis at Alyss, sitting at the defendants' table with Sergio and Diana and Montoya. Alyss mutters something.
Miller: But Senhora Martelli's crimes pail in comparison with her employers'. This illustrious founder of our city has become corrupted with power!
Miller: She thinks she can just trample over anyone who gets in her way!
Alyss (soto voce): Can't help it I got big feet.
