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.
Bok: In some other legal systems, an outburst like that would get someone grabbed and thrown in a dank dungeon. Maybe executed.
Bok: Here, the event is simply holo-recorded and spliced in with other sequences then broadcast to make the perp look like a complete idiot.
Bok: Also, his written testimony is thrown out as unreliable.
Now Bok narrates from a cameo. In the main panel, Kimberly Madeiras answers questions.
Bok: The other witnesses called by the artbiters were generally more forthcoming:
Caption: Kimberly Madeiras, the doll-house maven:
Kimberly: Yes, Hayami did call it, 'Le Château Périlleux,' but we thought it was some sort of dark humor.
Kimberly: No, she didn't talk much about her work, just that it was in the security business.
Miller enters the panel, to question Kimberly
Miller: Didn't you find it odd that someone researching for a docu would offer, what, 250 Moebits for a doll-house?
Kimberly: Not a 'doll-house.' A miniature.
Kimberly: And yes, I did think it odd, but some people do take this hobby very seriously.
Miller presses on. Kimberly refuses to be intimidated.
Miller: That 'miniature' was obviously evidence in Hayami's murder! Why didn't you turn it over to investigators?
Kimberly: I offered it to Smith & Holder but they weren't interested. I sold it to the first 'investigator' who showed an interest.
Kimberly: Don't go blaming me for your clients' screw-ups.
