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 2398

Panel 1
Lee's ship approaches planet Roussimov.

William: The planet... Roussimov?

Lee: Colonized by some Russian families almost 300 years ago.

Panel 2
Inside Lee's ship.

Lee: The colonists chose a relatively low-tech lifestyle, so the population now is not quite one million persons, clustered into two dozen towns and almost a hundred tiny hamlets.

Panel 3
Lee's ship entering the planet's upper atmosphere

William: Strange place for our quarry to go to ground.

Lee: Maybe not. Most folks here don't do cortical implants, or any other physical enhancements.

Lee: Here especially, she's super-human.

Panel 4
Lee's ship lands.

William: The space-port looks a bit... primitive.

Lee: Not much traffic here. This world is basically self-sufficient, but has little to offer for inter-galactic trade.

Panel 5
William now in disquise, he and Lee pay the landing fee.

Williams: How far do we have to go overland?

Lee: Not far. Less than 200 klicks.

Panel 6
William and Lee begin driving off in a car.

William: When you said these folks like a low-tech lifestyle, you weren't kidding.

Lee: If you'd prefer, I could get us a horse-drawn wagon.

William: No, this is fine.
