Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Seamus is just outside the door to Dr. Sharkisian's office. He pauses, anticipating the experience will not be pleasant.
Seamus (thought): Well, here we go.
Inside the door, Seamus is surprised to find himself face to face with a gruff-looking male Beltape, who sits behind a reception desk.
Beltape: Who are you?
Recovering from his momentary confusion, Seamus deals with the unusual receptionist. The receptionist is looking at a list on a small holoscreen before him.
Seamus: Ah, I am Dr. Seamus O Murchadha, here for an appointment with Dr. Sharkisian.
Beltape: Omurru-koo, omurru-koo ...
Seamus is flummoxed by this receptionist's uptake-slowness.
Beltape: T'ere is no 'Dr. Shaymis Omurru-koo' on te list.
Seamus: What? Nonsense.
Seamus presses on.
Seamus: Please look again – that's s-e-a-m-u-s, o, m-u-r-c-h-a-d-h-a.
Beltape: Uh, oh yeah t'ere it is.
The Beltape looks puzzled.
Beltape: But wait – t'at doesn't spell ' Shaymis Omurrukoo,' it spells 'see-mus oh-mur-chad-ha.' What are you tryin' ta pull?
Seamus is getting really irritated now.
Seamus: Of course it spells 'o murrukoo,' that's how it goes in the Gaelic.
Beltape: T'e what?
Now Beltape is getting steamed, and points towards the way Seamus came in.
Beltape: We don't do any of t'at gay-lick around here, buddy. T'is is a respectable establishment. Get out.
