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 541

Panel 1
A pair of ornate double-doors, beside which stands a ceremonial guard. The dialog comes from inside the doors.
Caption: The office of Director Chan Yuen-Lo:
Chief Ho (from inside): Thank you for seeing me, Director Chan.
Chan: Skip the pleasantries, Chief Ho. What is the situation?

Panel 2
Inside the office, Director Chan sits behind a very large desk, behind which is a decorated wall with a wide window in the center; the desk is flanked by eight monitor screens (backs to us). Ho stands in front of the desk, at attention.
Ho: This concerns the murder of the billionaire play-boy Ma Bo-Nu.
Ho: We ... suspect this was instigated by his cousin, Tong Xie-Po, co-heir to the Po Xu-ke estate.
Chan: What! How do you come to this conclusion?

Panel 3
Medium C/U on Ho:
Ho: Tong invited a foreigner, Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, to a formal party yesterday. Then, he drew O'Murchadha away from the main event into a private conference.
Ho: Meanwhile, O'Murchadha's secondaries were sent away, and Tong sent Ma to follow them, on the pretext of keeping track of their whereabouts.

Panel 4
Looking past Ho at Chan, looking back at his subordinate intently.
Ho: One of the secondaries was a femiform android, of course, and Ma had always been ... obsessed with them.
Ho: It was a trap -- Ma was lured into an alleyway, where a third employee of O'Murchadha's, a BeltApe, killed him with her bare hands.
