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 945

Panel 1
Technicians working on a nuclear weapon.
Caption: 'It was an open secret that Israel had a stockpile of nuclear weapons, as was revealed by Mordechai Vanunu, a technician at the Negev Nuclear Research Center.
Caption: 'Israel maintained a policy of 'nuclear ambiguity,' neither confirming nor denying reports that its stockpile ranged in size from 40 to 400 warheads.'

Panel 2
Map of the Middle East, hilighting the cities of Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, Najaf, Karbala and Qom.
Caption: 'But for Farnswoth's purposes, he only needed six, one each for Islam's holiest cities: Mecca, Medina, Jerusalem, Najaf, Karbala and Qom.
Caption: 'But he was also concerned with the Sufi Islam holy cities of Konya, Turkestan, Uqba, Harar, Alexandria, Touba, Ajmer, Pakpattan and Sylhet.'
Panel 3
Close-up of Theo, now in his 60s, looking evil.
Caption: 'Farnsworth understood that one of the 'Five pillars of Islam' was the hajj a required once-in-a lifetime pilgrimage of all Muslims to the Masjid al-Haram mosque in Mecca.
Caption: 'The destruction of Mecca would, he reasoned, destroy the foundation of Islam and the faith of its adherents.
Panel 4
Theo at the Israeli control center, looking suspicious.
Caption: 'The other cities were included in Farnsworth's scheme because they might become alternative locations for the hajj.
Caption: 'His vengeance-obsessed mind reasoned that if the hajj were made impossible, Islam itself would crumble and fall.'
