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.
Otto is in a room with two patient beds. He's refilling a cabinet with fresh linens. There's an upset patient in one of the beds, Cesar, yelling at the wall across from him. Here we can see that Cesar has a heart-lung machine installed (waiting for new heart and lungs to be grown). His roommate, Ren, is looking simply grumpy. Ren has some tubes coming out of him but he seems less encumbered.
Cesar: Damn lyin' piece of hog snot!! You should be taken out back and shot!
Otto: What's wrong, Senhor ...Vásquez?
Angle view so we see Cesar pointing at the 3D Viewtank mounted on the wall across from him. It's showing Jerome Falstaff delivering another report.
Falstaff (electronic): … talks keep hitting one snag after another, while ...
Cesar: That mendacious nit-wit! He's tryin' t' tear the city apart!
Otto: Oh, yeah, Falstaff.
Otto has come over next to Cesar's bed, and is adjusting his pillows. Here we can see that Cesar has a heart-lung machine installed (waiting for new heart and lungs to be grown).
Cesar: You don't believe his garbage, do you?
Otto: Not at all. But Senhor Vásquez, maybe you should avoid his newstreams.
Otto: Your Cardi-Pul machine has a difficult time when you're stressed.
New angle to include Ren in the frame. Now Cesar and Ren are bitching at each other, and Otto is looking nervous.
Ren: That old coot is not happy unless he's angry about something.
Cesar: 'Old coot?' I'm 53 years younger than you, ya bag'o'bones!
Otto: How about I put on a classic sit-com for you guys?
