Quantum Vibe

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.

Transcript For Strip 2102

Panel 1
Cut to: Aerial view of the White Complex, a cluster of large, interconnected towers surrounded by a swarm of lesser structures, on the planet Metropolis.
Caption: The White Complex, in the city of Metropolis, on the planet Wheeler.
Voice from Complex: Well, there was a series of arsons in the Farrago system last year, and some group named League For Justice claimed responsibility.
Voice: The InterLeo arrested some people, but nothing has been heard of them since.
Panel 2
Inside one of the towers: Albert Montoya is leaning on a balustrade on a mezzanine level overlooking a wide concourse with scores of people milling about. He is conversing with someone sitting in a lounge chair behind a column holding up the higher levels.

Montoya: No leads, no traces?
Voice: Up in the proverbial smoke, sorry.
Voice: But you know how InterLeo is, Al.
Caption: Normally, a conversation like this would take place over a secure Loquent link.
Panel 3
Shift angle to show the person sitting behind the column. A female figure still mostly in shadow.
Montoya: Yeah. They're great at making inconvenient people disappear.
Female: They're also good at false-flag operations. Arrests are an easy cover for whisking operatives out of theater.
Caption: But the authorities on Wheeler set up a planet-wide Loquent suppression field.
Panel 4
Albert begins walking away from the woman, who remains seated.
Female: You're playing with a rough crowd. Don't make yourself too inconvenient.
Montoya: Doesn't look like I'll have much choice. You be careful, too.
Caption: So, inquiries like this must be carried out the old-fashioned – and riskier – way.
