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 239

Panel 1
The view of Aldrinopolis from 10 miles up – nestled in Crater Taruntius, a large, old, fairly shallow crater flanked by low mountains, covered with a currently-transparent dome, through which the towers of the central city can be prominently seen.
Caption: Aldrinopolis, population 1.5 million, resides in the 56-km-wide Crater Taruntius, under a plasmo-graphene dome which contains its air at a comfortable pressure and temperature.

Panel 2
A schematic view of the same city and crater, showing connecting underground transportation lines, and the spaceport just outside the crater.
Caption: The city is an important trade center for other, smaller communities in the region, and is home to OmegaTek, Jones-Hardesty Spacewrights, and the second-busiest spaceport on Luna.

Panel 3
The shuttle touches down on the tarmac near a spaceport terminal.
Caption: On an average day, Jacques de Molay Spaceport transports more than 17,000 metric tonnes of dry goods, and 6500 human and android passengers.
Panel 4
Nicole and Seamus still in their seats in the passenger cabin. Nicole is looking antsy.
Caption: Some of them get a bit cranky.
Nicole: We've been on the ground for 10 minutes already! When do we get off this tub?
