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 807

Panel 1
Flashback scene (Li in cameo): A middle-aged couple sit in recliners watching a video on a wall-screen. Behind them, a young and sullen Li walks by looking at a hand-Screen.
Li: I wasn't adopted, but passed around a series of foster families.
Li: Most of them were layabouts, just babysitting for pay.
Li: I didn't mind them much, as I liked being left alone.
Panel 2
An even more sullen young Li with 'do-gooder' type foster parents, who smile too hard. One of them is holding up a fancy suit of boy's clothes for him.
Caption (Li): 'What was worse were the do-gooders, who thought they could 'fix' me with enough overbearing I mean, loving attention.
Caption: 'I had to fight them just to keep my sanity.'
Panel 3
Young Li sits at a computer console with a kindly, middle-aged black man.
Caption: 'Finally, there was Sam.
Caption: 'Sam was a journeyman cyberhacker. He had an insight into how computer networks work and liked to share.'
Panel 4
A wide-eyed young Li at a keyboard, from the monitor's perspective. In the background around Li are the cascading streams of characters symbolic of the cyber-world.
Caption: 'I'd always just thought of networks as the way you get music and vids, and order pizza.
Caption: 'I hadn't realized just how much you could actually do with them.'
