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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

Transcript For Strip 2163

Panel 1
Bok is reporting the news on a livestream.
Bok: This just in: Mere moments after the first explosion, a SECOND blast has destroyed the Miguel Morrison Convention Center in Aroeira Sphere.
Bok: The Center was a mere 250 meters from Clínica do Renascimento, which also sustained some damage.

Panel 2
Bok speaks from an inset while the main panel shows medical workers scrambling over patients in a triage/first aid scene. We should be able to spot Otto among the workers.
Bok: Nonetheless, the Clínica is serving as a triage center for bombing victims, as medical teams work feverishly to save lives.

Panel 3
Bok continues, a stock 5-shot of the Five Pillars filling the background behind him.
Bok: Meanwhile negotiations with the Galactic Council continue in pursuit of a Security Treaty, as they're calling it.
Bok: I am told an agreement is coming 'very soon,' which might help us identify the shadowy group behind the attacks.
Panel 4
Closer on Bok, giving a wry grin.
Bok: What remains to be seen is, what will the cost of the Council's assistance come to?
Bok: Some sources suggest the I.C. Wants 'qualified immunity' for its employees working here, and suspending some privacy protections.
Bok: As if even the Pillars could enforce such changes.
