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 2456

Page 77
Panel 1
Cut to a room featureless except for a chair, in which Macron is seated, his legs crossed at the ankles and his hands clasped behind his neck, as he tries to look relaxed. A pair of silhouetted figures are observing him through a one-way glass
Caption: Not long afterward:
Figure 1: So is this how you want to play it?
Figure 2: It’s vital to know what his game is.
Panel 2
Different angle, from inside the room. Sergio Cooper, holding a wine bottle pops-in in front of Macron. With him are a small table with a pair of wine glasses.
Sergio: Hello, Macron. Are you thirsty?
Macron: Depends on what’s in that bottle.
Macron: I expected you would try to drug me, but that will make little difference.
Panel 3
Sergioi pours a glass.
Sergio: This is a 3-year-old Pinot Noir made from grapes descended directly from seeds harvested from a vinyard in Côte de Nuits.
Marcron: And grown in one of your hydroponic vats, I suppose?
Sergio: On the contrary ...
Panel 4
Sergio is handing a glass to Macron as he holds a full glass of his own.
Sergio: … The grapes were grown on a planet called ‘Nouvelle Bourgogne’ which has several regions similar to its namesake on Old Terra.
Macron: Oh? How did those seeds miraculously survive the Calamities?
Panel 5
Sergio holds his glass forth to toast. Macron is swirling his glass a bit, sniffing at it.
Sergio: I said, ‘descended from.’ I believe they’d been cultivated in Argentina before their descendants were exported off Terra.
Sergio: Salud.
