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 912

Panel 1
External shot of Cissonius decelerating towards the Saturn system.
Seamus (from ship): My dearest Johanna, ...
Seamus: The captain says we're only eight days out, now.
Seamus: I can just make out Saturn's rings without magnification.
Seamus: This message will reach you in just a bit less than two minutes.

Panel 2
Seamus, in his quarters, recording a video-mail on his Screen, Watson. The wall screen next to him shows a star-field with ringed Saturn just visible near the center.
Seamus: Murphy has progressed well, her new brain circuitry has integrated more than 90 percent now.
Seamus: She should be at 100 percent before we arrive at Hyperion.
Seamus: Quite a quite a woman, that Murphy.
Panel 3
Cut to Johanna Diamondi at her station on Hyperion, viewing the e-mail on her own personal Screen. She's looking mildly troubled.
Seamus (from screen): On Ganymede Nicole and I had both scolded her, and then abandoned her.
Seamus: But she is possessed of a loyalty, I guess is the best word, far beyond what I've seen in any human.
Seamus: No wonder Po Xu-ke treasured her so.

Panel 4
Diamondi continues viewing, now looks more satisfied.
Seamus: Fortunately, somehow, the experience has ended Murphy's rather inconvenient limerance for me.
Seamus: She and Nicole are thick as thieves now, and Murphy is spending time with Hugh, our ships' engineer.
Seamus: None of my business, really, but an encouraging sign.
Panel 5
Medium c/u of Seamus with his Watson
Seamus: I was glad to know that more plancktronic mesh can be obtained at Hyperion.
Seamus: Murphy's new brain was intended to be my own escape hatch, should any of my other enemies catch up with me.
Seamus: You should consider taking similar precautions ...
Panel 6
Closeup of Seamus recording on Watson.
Seamus: Although once we begin the next stage I expect no further disturbances.
Seamus: Well, that's all I have for now, my darling.
Seamus: Our next exchange should be in real-time, or something close to it.
Panel 7
At the Hyperion station, Johanna looks up as someone OP addresses her.
Seamus (from): Until then all my love.
Voice: So, it will be the three of them, then?
Johanna: Yes, but I don't foresee a problem.
Panel 8
Johanna faces the Mystery Person, who we only see in a partial silhouette feminine, but that's all we can tell for now.
Johanna: Do you want to greet them when they arrive?
Mystery Person: It might be better to wait until after they've settled-in.
MP: Wouldn't want to spoil the surprise.
