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 382

Panel 1
Judge Antonio Neapolitan's office. Dark-colored walls and furniture festooned with commorative photos, a mounted ceremonial sword, and on the wall be hind a desk, a large screen showing various images in succession.

Caption: Judge Anthony Neapolitan's office.
Neapolitan: Sorry for not offering you chairs but I want to keep this meeting brief.

Panel 2
Two-shot of the judge and Ringo.
Neapolitan: I don't know where this Claud Southend fellow got some of his information, Mr. Ringo, but I'm assuming he's working on his own, and not for you.
Ringo: He does not work for me, your honor.

Panel 3

Ringo: For instance, and not to make accusations, it could tell us whether that particular morsel of the substance had previously been logged into the police evidence store.
Panel 6
Medium shot of the judge at his desk, striking a no-bullshit pose, looking levelly at Schroeder off-panel.
Judge: Ms. Schroeder, that vial of 'cheez' is your only physical evidence on the narcotics charge, without which you have no case.
Judge: So tell me now, will you, or can you, produce that evidence for examination?

Panel 7A
Close-up of Schroeder looking at the judge nervously.
Schroeder: ... I ...
Panel 7 B
Close-up of the judge glaring back at Schroeder.
Schroeder (OP): ... uh ...

Panel 8
Three-shot of Ringo, Schroeder, and the judge. Ringo is looking quietly triumphant as Schroeder stammers out her answer. The judge just looks at her coolly.

Schroeder: At this time the prosecution intends ... to drop all charges against Ms. Oresme.
