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.
Da Costa and Montoya in Da Costa's office. They are looking at a large viewscreen, which is at an oblique angle to us so we can't see what's on it yet.
Da Costa: These are all the corporations and cartels that are in a rivalrous position relative to local enterprises.
Montoya: That is quite a list.
Looking at Da Costa and Montoya from just to one side of the screen. Da Costa is doing some motions with his hands, directing the display system.
Da Costa: We can narrow the list quite a bit by eliminating the smaller operations.
Da Costa: Also those with significant investments in the city …
Montoya: Wait ...
Closer two-shot of Da Costa and Montoya
Montoya: Someone already invested here might still be willing to destroy even their own facilities, if their aim is to generate a chaotic situation.
Montoya: Certain parties may be poised to take advantage while we're off-foot.
Da Costa: But that still leaves us with more than 570 possible subjects to investigate!
Montoya smiles and claps Da Costa on the shoulder.
Montoya: If we are lucky, it could be more than one of them, maybe all of them together.
Montoya: In this way our chances of finding a good lead improve greatly.
Da Costa: You have a funny idea of 'lucky,' Albert.
Da Costa: My idea of 'lucky' is when the solution arrives on your doorstep on its own.
