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

BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]

All Good Things Must Come To An End.

Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.

We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.

Salute!

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 418

Panel 1
Buford, Nicole, Seamus and Ventura are seated at a table in the restaurant. They are looking at holo-screen menus being projected in front of them. Buford does not have her visor on.
Buford: Can I get a menu in Anglish?
Nicole: Use your visor.
Buford: The fisor gifs me a headache.
Ventura (to Seamus): Do you wish for me to also consume food?

Panel 2
Nicole touches a finger to a lower corner of Buford's menu, and it changes to English.
Nicole: Oh, all right. Here you go.
Buford: T'anks.
Seamus (to Ventura): Not necessary. If you like, you may order a glass of lubricant.

Panel 3
Nicole glances at Ventura as she punches her order into her holographic menu. Ventura's menu has disappeared.
Nicole: So, uh, Ventura ... you can consume food?
Ventura: To some extent. I can chew and swallow, of course, and my internal mechanisms can extract minerals and convert sugars to alcohol, which some of my components can use.

Panel 4
Seamus is punching in his order, while Buford still studies her holo-menu. Nicole smiles at Ventura.
Nicole: Convert food to alcohol? Wish I could do that.
Seamus: If that were the case you'd never stop eating.



Panel 5
Nicole gives Seamus a hurt look.
Nicole: You wound me, Seamus. After what happened on Luna, I've learned my lesson.
Seamus: We shall see.
Ventura: Is it permitted to ask, what happened on Luna?

Panel 6
Buford grins a wry grin, Nicole glares at Buford, Seamus smiles quietly. Ventura is placid.
Buford: She took a guy to bed who turned out to be a mercorp spy and a rapist, then got t'rown in jail.
Nicole: Hey! It was ... more complicated than that.

Panel 7
Ventura looks at Buford, who is finally punching her order into her holo-menu.
Ventura: Dr. O'Murchadha said that you are Ms. Nicole's assistant, yes?
Buford: Yes. Why?
Ventura: Then should you be embarrassing your employer this way?

Panel 8
Buford is non-plussed. Nicole laughs. Seamus looks amused. Ventura is calm.
Nicole: Ha-ha! Score one for Robot-Girl.
Ventura: I am not a robot, I am an android.
