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.

Quantum Vibe: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 2240

Panel 1
Cut to: Diana's workstation in the property-recovery department at Cooper Security. She is focused intently at the Screen.
Caption: Diana had expected her job in the property-recovery section of Cooper Security would be as mundane as her old job working for Juan Gom├ęz had been.
Caption: Instead it was much more complicated.
Panel 2
Diana from POV the screen. She's furrowing her brow in frustration.
Caption: A shipment of highly valuable Drangolian Werpolitzi had gone missing from the Kornbluth testing facility in Braunfels Sphere.
Caption: Kornbluth is contracted with Cooper Security so it's up to Diana to track the stolen goods down and recover them if possible.
Panel 3
She leans back in her chair, momentarily defeated.
Caption: Each 'batch' of Drangolian Werpolitzi has a unique identifier code embedded within, making it easier to track.
Caption: So long as anyone handling it is part of the Kim-Favreau Compact, which allows her to search their transfer records.
Caption: But many operations aren't part of the Compact.
Panel 4
Shift focus, Diana has that crafty look, and we can see Lester at another workstation a few meters away, glancing over at her.
Caption: There are ways around such difficulties, but she isn't cleared for accessing data volumes that sensitive.
Caption: The obvious solution is to go work on her 'babysitter.'
