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.
External view, Causa Sui coasts alongside the second 'space turd.' The rock is canted at an odd angle.

Murphy (from ship): And here we are, as I forecast.
Looking past Murphy and Hugo at the viewscreen in their control room. It is displaying the rock, with tactical lines and numeric readings.
Hugo: Unfortunately it's acquired a pronounced two-axial spin.
Murphy: I suppose we should be glad the drive system on it has gone inert.
Murphy and Hugo.
Hugo: Indeed. It's also good there's no guidance system on it smart enough to deal with getting Displaced to another system.
Murphy: We can use electro-grav beams to stabilize it.
Hugo: Perhaps, but first we need to make extensive scan-recordings of it, untouched.
Another external view of the ship and the rock, coasting and tumbling along.
Murphy: For clues as to its origin, I get that.
Murphy: But it has been 'touched' quite a lot by the radiation and gravity waves of Snake-Eyes back there.
Hugo: One problem at a time, Murphy.
