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.
Alex Stern, sitting at a small table in a spartan room with Coronel Glass standing opposite, interrogating. Campos stands to one side.
Glass: As it happens, your alibi checks out.
Glass: You helped a cousin manage a fiesta de quinceañera for his daughter, and then spent the day hanging out with your other friends.
Sten: It was a bat-mitzvah party, actually.
Glass is getting in Stern's face again.
Glass: So, someone else obtained your entry codes and did the dirty work.
Glass: Who did you give them to? Who are you protecting?
Stern: No one! However that asshole got those codes, they didn't come from me.
Campose, still to one side, pipes up.
Campos: What about the girlfriend?
Glass: Yeah, we learned you have a girlfriend. Or did anyway. Zondra Quirós, was it?
Glass: She's disappeared. Do you know how we might find her?
Very close-up side view of Alex, thinking intensely.
Stern (thought bubbles): I know I didn't give away the codes. There must be a leak or hack in the system.
Stern: But Relógio Céu is taking tremendous heat for this and they want a scapegoat.
Stern: I'll be damned if I'm gonna be their scapegoat.
Stern: But the blackmail threat … and I told Shotah about it! What if he brings it up?
