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 800

Panel 1
Murphy and Seamus are just arriving at the entrance to the Áine's Spa. Murphy looks warmer.
Caption: The next morning:
Seamus: I'm glad you're feeling better this morning.
Seamus: When one has a poor frame of mind, people coming out of Áine's tend to be intolerably chipper.
Panel 2
Nicole comes ambling out the door, looking not particularly chipper.
Nicole: Hey Uncle Grampa. Robot Girl. Have fun without me underfoot?
Nicole: Whoop-de-doo let's blow this churros stand already.

Panel 3
The three stand on the sidewalk, gabbing.
Seamus: Did something go wrong?
Nicole: Nothing went wrong so much as nothing went right. The chelation bath smelled like old cheese, the food tasted a bit flat and I had kept waking up during the second sleep cycle.

Panel 4
Three-shot of Seamus, Nicole, Murphy
Nicole: Maybe I was spoiled by the spas in L-5 City and Pellucidar, but … well, I feel all right. Maybe I'm distracted thinking about … er ...
Voice OP right: A tall, dark, handsome stranger?
Panel 5
Nicole turns to face – Jesús Hernandez, sort of, but his skin is lighter, his hair is different, the visor is gone and he's wearing street clothing. But to that face, those eyes, Nicole locks on, frozen in astonishment. He smiles at her serenely.
Nicole: It's … it's


Panel 6
Seamus steps up, claps a hand on each of their shoulders. Murphy is also in the frame, although she looks like she'd rather be far away.
Seamus: Li! Glad you could make it!
Seamus: Girls, I'd like you to meet a not-so-old friend, Situ Li-Liang.
Panel 7
Now Seamus' arms are around the girls' shoulders, although Murphy is pushing back a bit. Li smiles warmly, bows a bit.
Seamus: Li, this is Nicole Oresme, my assistant, and Murphy, our secretary.
Li-Liang: Good morning, ladies!
Panel 8
Nicole, still flustered, tries to say something to Li, flubs her lines. Seamus suppresses a chuckle and Murphy rolls her eyes. Li looks confused.
Nicole: Er, what you Trosberg show us that's interesting in can to see?
Li: Excuse me?
