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.
Indiegogo Campaign Launched! [ May 17, 2021 ]
That's right boys and girls. We've fired up an Indiegogo campaign. What's in it for you, you ask? It's to get the next volume of Quantum Vibe to print and ebook form, that's what.
To tempt you further, we have more than just the book planned for donors to receive for their donations, all depending on how things go. The more donors we get, the more extras we can offer. Stay tuned for more announcements!
In the control room, Murphy and Hugo are still being squeezed into their crash couches.
Murphy: Errnnh … 5000 seconds … how much longer --?
Hugo: Oh, I think 5 million kilometers is far enough, we should be past the shield.
The crushing acceleration has ended, Murphy and Hugo relax a bit but the crash-couches remain as they stand in their diases.
Murphy: Whuff! That's a relief.
Hugo: Now let's hope there aren't any more layers of shields.
Polyphemus pops into a new region, a bit above the plane of the rings.
Murphy (cameo): Okay, we're now 12.38 gigameters from where we were attacked.
Hugo (cameo): We must now bleed off most of our excess speed before we get there.
In the control room, Murphy and Hugo are again squeezed into their crash-couches.
Murphy: Nrf … High-delta deceleration is no more fun than acceleration.
Hugo: Be glad that I thought to turn the whole ship rather than just invert the thrusters.
