Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
On a green world, five figures are harvesting carrots and tubers from a large garden. Two of them are standing close together, and one of that pair is speaking to the other.
Caption: A new settlement on Nyumbani, in the galaxy NGC 4438.
Figure 1 (Sandra): Sixteen seasons here and I still can't figure it out.
Figure 2 (Tom): Figure what out, Sandra?
Sandra indicates another figure, a female, pulling tubers out of the ground several meters away.
Sandra: That gynoid, 'Melissa.'
Sandra: It doesn't even need to eat food, like we do.
Sandra: Why is it out here harvestin' taters?
Medium shot of Melissa, pulling potatoes. She is side-glancing towards Tom and Sandra. Her bemused look indicates she can hear them.
Tom (OP): She said her skin absorbs energy directly from the sun, so outdoor work suits her.
Sandra (OP): Whoop-de-doo. I'll bet it uses more energy workin' than it gets soakin' up sunshine.
Tom is squatting while extracting some carrots with a spade, while Sandra stands by, holding a basket almost full of same.
Tom: Maybe so. We all got our reasons for being here, and it's impolite to pry.
Sandra: Tom, I came here to get away from all the technology back home. It poisons th' soul.
Sandra: And now it's followed me here.
