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.

Transcript For Strip 246

Panel 1
Nicole, in a new outfit, is looking up at some of the Mega Towers in Aldrinopolis' Hub. From a low angle see the towers rise kilometers into the sky above her.
Hari (OP): You wouldn't know it now, but I used to own the tallest building in Aldrinopolis.

Panel 2
Overhead angle of Nicole, standing in a penthouse courtyard, looking over a chest-high, outer wall, down to the street level roughly a kilometer below.
Hari (OP): I've had a lot of offers for this location, from people who want to raise another Mega-Tower.

Panel 3
Nicole turns to look back towards the penthouse. Seamus and Hari Copperton are standing a few meters away, also in the courtyard, which surrounds the penthouse apartment on two sides. The men are holding cocktail drinks.
Hari: But as long as I'm alive, this building stays put.
Seamus: Do you think this building will last two millennia, Hari?
Panel 4
Two-shot of Seamus and Hair, two very old friends enjoying each others' company.
Hari: Oho! So you think I'll only live another 16 centuries, eh?
Seamus: Actually I think by then you'll be quite bored with this place and finally ready to move on.

Panel 5
Nicole walks over to stand with the men.
Hari: Oh, I might tear this pile of iron and silica down and build something new in its place someday.
Hari: But I can't leave this city, Seamus. I made it possible ...

Panel 6
Three-shot of Seamus, Nicole and Hari.
Nicole: As developer of the plasmigraphene dome, you made every city on Luna possible.
Hari: Ah, someone's been telling stories about me. I deny everything.

Panel 7
Upward angle shot on Hari, showing the other towers around them and a good bit of sky.
Hari: But it's true, I invented the domes, and now upwards of 400 million lives rely on their integrity.
Hari: I live in the top of a tower because if this dome fails, I will pay no less a price for that than anyone else.

Panel 8
Three-shot of Seamus, Nicole and Hari. Nicole is looking upward, a bit nervously. Seamus chides his friend.
Seamus: It would take a direct hit by a kilometer-wide meteor to break this dome.
Seamus: A strike which by the way would kill a lot more people on Terra.
Seamus: So I think you're off the hook here, Orcus.
