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 2001

Panel 1
Back to full panel of Bok, with the Las Notícias Indelicadas graphic behind him.

Bok: Before we return to the Arb, I've received a few questions from viewers who are not familiar with the justice system here in Bubbleopolis, which I'd like to answer.
Bok: The first is: 'If the arbiters already have the evidence, why have a formal hearing like this?'
Bok: Well, in fact many disputes are settled without the parties facing each other in hearings.
Panel 2
Diagram illustrates Bok's words:

Bok: In most cases when person has a beef with another, he'll complain to his assurance agency, who will contact the other person's assurance agency, and they'll set up an arbitration to settle the matter quietly. Because it's more profitable than going to war.
Bok: The parties submit their evidence, and the arbiters can respond with questions in writing, to which the parties can also respond in writing, until the arbiters are satisfied they have enough information to render a decision.
Panel 3
Another diagram illustrates Bok's words..
Bok: But this case involves some very high-profile figures who have engaged in a rather shocking, by our standards, level of open combat.
Bok: The public is already interested, and people here have learned by experience that the best way to sort these things out is via a formal hearing, which literally everyone can view and consider.
Bok: When people can see that justice is being done, they have more confidence in the justice system, and this boosts everyone's sense of trust and safety.
Panel 4
Pull back a bit to show Bok with the LNI logo and the Gratuos link button at the bottom.
Bok: And speaking of trust, we are pleased to carry an A-level rating from Auditor de Noticias.
Bok: Our reporting may be bold, and it may upset people, but we report the facts.
Bok: So please, if you like honest journalism please click the Gratuos link and show us that you appreciate our efforts.
