Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke Bieser Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Elevated view of Hugh and Manny (in a pressure suit) surveying the cargo area. There's a huge burn mark on the floor extending past the central shaft towards the far bulkhead, a leftover from Baines' departure.
Hugh: I guess it could have been worse.
Bill: No critical systems damaged, yeah. But it's gonna cost me plenty to fix this.
Closer 2-shot on Bill and Hugh.
Bill: How long to get the controls fixed?
Hugh: About an hour. Only need to fab a couple of parts.
Hugh: Is Carl gonna be okay?
Cut to a view of the ship's 'autodoc,' which looks like a high-tech coffin. Bill speaks from an inset cameo:
Bill: I think so. Dorothy said we got him into the autodoc just in time.
Bill: He's stabilized, but it's gonna take a medi-vat to fix his busted neck, and that will have to wait until we get where we're going.
Bill heads back towards the lift, as Hugh turns towards a panel full of ripped wires..
Bill: I gotta head back topside, you gonna be okay here?
Hugh: I'll be fine. Watch out in case there are any more Pinocchios among our guests.
Bill: Let's not tempt fate, Hugh.
