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.
A very dour Bok is presenting a newscast, appearing in front of his Las Noticias Indelicadas logo (which is a bit different now.
Large text behind Bok: Tapa Por Deus?
Bok: It is now two days since the event some are calling the 'God-Strike', and we have updated casualty numbers..
Bok: Everyone and every thing inside Villa-Lobos Sphere, which took the direct hit, is gone. That number is 152,329 persons.
Closer shot on Bok
Bok: The adjacent spheres – Merielles, Cavalcanti, Portinary, Garibaldi, and De Sousa, show 1.2 million dead, with 475,231 persons injured but surviving.
Bok: As for the dead, so far more than 827 thousand back-ups have been recovered, so they might be resurrected.
Bok: However since most people keep their back-ups in or near their homes, the residents of Villa-Lobos, along with the less fortunate in the adjacent spheres … belong to the ages.

Caption (Bok): Make-shift medicos have been set up in unaffected spheres to handle the unprecedented number of injured, but they are being overwhelmed.
Caption: Anyone with medical skills who is able to assist is urged to contact Hermanos Unidos, Ajuda de Emergência, or Manos Amigos and register with them.
Back to Bok
Bok: Word of the attack has been spreading through human space, and condolences are pouring in from hundreds of worlds, along with some offers of aid.
Bok: Not to mention, a torrent of queries from anxious relatives, friends and investors seeking to learn about the fates of loved ones and business partners.
Bok: And amidst those condolences and queries they often ask: What's coming next?
