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.

Quantum Vibe: Nicole - By Scott Bieser w/Zeke Bieser

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 251

Panel 1
Still at the dinner table, but now the plates are cleared and Hari and his guests are having after-dinner drinks (Seamus is drinking coffee, Hari is drinking a vermouth, and Nicole is drinking a whisky, neat.
Hari: So, what's your schedule like? Staying on Luna long?
Seamus: One week.

Panel 2
Closer 2-shot of Hari and Seamus.
Hari: Planning some sight-seeing?
Seamus: Hardly. I have an appointment with Dr. Sharkisian tomorrow. He expects a 5-day course of treatment to get my endocrine system re-balanced.
Panel 3
Different two-shot of Hari and Seamus.
Hari: Glad you took my advice, to see him.
Seamus: Yes, well, it was helpful that you gathered the Damouiseau Station recordings for me.
Panel 4
Hari and Seamus. Hari smiles broadly.
Hari: Glad I could help. You shouldn't neglect your health, Seamus.
Hari: I intend to throw a lavish party for your 400th birthday, and you'd better be here for it.

Panel 5
Focus on Seamus. He has to think a moment about how old he is.
Seamus: That's not much incentive. You know I don't like big parties.
Seamus: Also, the way things are going I'm not sure Luna will be a safe place to visit in – ah -- 60 years.

Panel 6
Two-shot of Nicole and Hari, with a bit of Seamus in the frame.
Hari: And how shall the plucky young assistant be spending her week here?
Nicole: Oh, some shopping, some sight-seeing, some drinking. You know, plucky stuff.

Panel 7
Hari reaches out and lays his hand on Nicole's forearm. She doesn't withdraw immediately, but looks uncomfortable.
Hari: I'll be busy during daytimes, but in the evenings I can show you around, if you like.
Hari: I can get you an exclusive tour of the Davis caverns, of the Jones-Hardesty campus, of ...

Panel 8
Nicole pulls her arm away, not too forcefully, but unmistakably signaling her feelings.
Nicole: Thanks, Mr. Copperton, but no thanks.
Nicole: I – when I go exploring, I like to go solo. Less arguing that way.
Hari: Of course.
