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.

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 481

Panel 1
The Farmer stands in a field with the five children (including Nicole) who all have pointed-blade hoes, with 1.5-meter handles. He is giving a short lecture.
Farmer: Today we're going to learn about Conservation Tillage.
Farmer: It was originally developed for areas on Old Terra where soil erosion was a problem, and water was at a premium.
Panel 2
Medium shot of Nicole with some of the other kids around her. Nicole is regarding her hoe dubiously; the others are casting annoyed glances at her.
Nicole: Excuse me, but this looks incredibly primitive.
Nicole: Is this really how our food gets raised?
Nicole: What about those big machines I see working in the other fields?

Panel 3
The Farmer stays calm but his expression is clearly one of annoyance.
Famer: Well, of course we mostly use mechanized methods, as well as hydroponics.
Famer: But to understand the basics, we will till a small patch the old-fashioned way ...
Farmer: ... if that's okay with you, Ms. Oresme.


Panel 4
The farmer begins digging a line of small holes in the dirt, as the children watch.
Farmer: What I'm doing here is digging small 'planting stations.'
Farmer: Later we'll sow a pair of meatato buds into each hole.
Nicole: I can't wait.
