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 fairly featureless corridor, at the end of which is a desk with a bored security guard, next to a heavy door.
Caption: Bubbleopolis doesn't really do jails, or prisons.
Caption: Most lock-ups are ad-hoc arrangements, only intended for temporary use.
Closer-in on the guard at a desk. Now the guard is getting zapped by a zinger coming from POV.
Caption: So they don't really have a conception of 'high security' beyond enclosing the place in an Oresme Shield to prevent unauthorized Murph-ing.
Looking down an inner corridor where there's a room with a doorway that is open but a glowing doorjamb indicates an invisible barrier.
Caption: Ah, an EM-screen rather than metal bars. At least they're not completely primitive.
Now looking straight through the doorway, we see Alex Stern laying in his bunk, looking up in surprise.
POV: Hello, Alex. Keeping busy?
