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

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 36

Panel 1
In Seamus and Nicole's stateroom, Nicole meets an android ships's steward at the door. He has with him a levitating tray of covered dishes.
Steward: Room service – one piscabeef special and one crawdad tetrazini with salad.
Nicole: Yes, thank you.
Panel 2a
Nicole, turns with the tray and begins walking back over to the bunks but is interrupted by the Steward, who has his hand out in the classic 'my tip, please' gesture.
Steward: {ahem}
Panel 2b
Nicole drops a coin into the Stewards outstretched palm.
Nicole: Here y'go.
Steward: Thank you, ma'am.
Panel 3
Nicole transfers their meal dishes from the delivery tray to some levitating smaller trays, about the size of tv-dinner tables, placed near the lower bunk where Seamus is seated.
Nicole: That's six silgs out of my pocket so far.
Seamus: Keep track and I'll reimburse you at Helios Base.
Panel 4
Nicole sitting next to Seamus on the lower bunk
Nicole: I wish we could eat in the restaurant. I'm getting stir-crazy in this room.
Seamus: Between the narrow corridors and all the rude stares I get, I'd rather stay here.
Panel 5
Medium close-up of Nicole, eating.
Nicole: You know, maybe if you moved around more, you wouldn't be so large.
Panel 6
As soon as the words are out of her mouth, Nicole realizes her gaffe. She looks up nervously at Seamus, who stares down at her balefully.
Nicole (small): eeep!
Seamus: If you must know, Ms. Oresme, my size has nothing to do with complacency or gluttony.
Seamus: A problem occurred during my last rejuvenation which produced an endocrine imbalance.

Panel 7
Seamus looks sadly down at his food. Nicole looks like she wants to cry.
Seamus: It caused me to grow 30 cm taller and 150 kilograms heavier than I should be.
Seamus: I haven't had time to have the problem fixed yet due to the Project's schedule.

Panel 8
Nicole walks past Seamus, red-faced, headed for the door.
Nicole: I – please excuse me.
Nicole: I need to get some air. Don't wait up.
