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 805

Panel 1
In the present, Li is telling his life story to Murphy and Nicole. Seamus is looking at something OP.
Li: I waited outside the door to their room for several minutes, and didn't hear anything.
Li: It was the most terrifying silence I'd ever heard.
Panel 2
Young Li in his bed. His father has walked into the room to confront him.
Caption: 'I returned to my room, and several minutes later:'
Li's Dad: Get your clothes on, I'll need your help with this.

Panel 3
Li and his father lugging a 3-meter-long rolled-up carpet. Behind them is a flying car with a back door open.
Caption (Li): 'At first I didn't understand what was going on.'
Caption: 'He had me help him load a rolled-up old carpet into our Skrambler.'

Panel 4
Li and his father in the front seats of the Skrambler. Father has a crazed look in his eye, focused on the flying; Li is looking nervously at his father.
Caption: 'We were almost to the piscolettuce fields when I considered that the carpet was heavier than it should have been, and realized what that meant.'
Panel 5
Aerial view of the Skrambler touching down in the far corner of a dark field.
Caption: 'He didn't say a word until after we landed in the farthest corner of a field that had been recently plowed.'
Panel 6
Li's father hands the boy a shovel.
Caption: 'All my life I lived in fear of my father and had never challenged him.'
Li's father: Take this and start digging.
Panel 7
Li's father is struggling with the rolled-up carpet. Li is coming up behind him with the shovel, poised to strike a blow.
Caption: 'But I considered what my own fate would likely be, after I'd helped him bury mom's body.'
Panel 8
Back to the present. Nicole is doe-eyed with sympathy, Murphy wears her poker face. Li is a bit downcast as he recalls the events.
Nicole: You used a shovel?
Li: It seemed like a good idea at the time.
