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 2472

Panel 1
In the Pillars’ conference room, Dominic Martello is kneeling atop the table, it’s dome open. He’s working on something inside. Alyss peers over his shoulder.
Jorge: Well, what do you think? Can we do the return trip?
Panel 2
Dominic leans back, shoulders slumped. He has a gadget in his hand which he was using on the works inside.
Dominic: Well, I think I’ve worked out the navigation system.
Alyss: But we are a long way from home. Almost a billion parsecs.
Enrique: Do you think we can jump that far?
Panel 3
Dominic continues.
Dominic: Assuming I have the coordinates right, well, not quite.
Alyss: We have about 85 percent of the power we need, assuming a small reserve for final adjustments.
Panel 4
Alyss continues
Kofi Akosa: Since we’re no longer fighting, can we build up what we need, here?
Dominic: We’re also rebuilding structures, and people. Give it about two cycles, maybe three.
Lorelei: Three cycles? We’ll start having food shortages by the first!
Panel 5
Alyss continues.
Enrique: Food prices are already rising. Soon we may have a riot on our hands.
Jorge: Maybe we can move closer to one of the nearby clusters?
Alyss: If we do that …
SFX: WheEze-rump! WheEze-rump! WheEze-rump!

Panel 6
Hugo and Murphy emerge from their hopper.
Hugo: So, are you all ready to go home?
