Let's be honest: from the practical eternity we spent watching Ralf and Ethnie languish in jail to the era the Alyss, Hugo and Murphy spent drinking from cups and doing pretty much nothing to advance the plot, the whole schmeizel got wrapped up ridiculously quickly.

Seriously. All of a sudden it was over.

We will continue to release Quantum Vibe stories on both Kindle and DTC moving forward.  What's unclear is which of our back catalog we will make available on Kindle and DTC next.  Hopefully, early next year for that announcement.  ;D

Well, if Ralf got assimilated, it was on the rogue Cush starship that "caught" him & Ethine not the Cush starship that Theo used as a Command starship.

Right. Gamer-gods will into existence another Cush ship, this one a Dodecahedron (I don't know if that's just to show that it's different or Scott got tired of drawing the complex one.) This "rogue" (un-rogue?) ship chased down Ralf and Ethine, and she was assimulated, and had the gamer-god chat.

She was "returned" to this vessel and was made "Cush Queen". Had Ralf been assimulated it's at this point where I assume Ethine would have free reign to free him.

Later on she beamed over to Theo's Cush, and any slaughtered Cush were from that ship.

Quantum Vibe / Re: Eithne vs The Gamer Gods

Eh, i'm a bit unclear as to what Ethine's role is.  The Cush were supposed to be an NPC race operating according to a background story.  If they are now a player race (?) then Ethine has some pretty hefty advantages and disadvantages with their superior tech and inability to innovate.
The Borg inability to innovate is less of a problem than their insistence on frontal brute force attacks. If Ethine were to use some Tal Shiar style underhanded spy type actions with the Cush, then the Cush become enormously powerful.

I wonder just how long the conversation was from Ralf's POV.

IE It may have been a matter of seconds (as far as Ralf was concerned) between the time Ethine was "injected" and when Ethine recovered.

Time in Cyber-Space could be different than time in "normal space".

I believe Ralf got assimilated when Ethine had her conversation so he may well be dead by now (ripped apart by Murphy).

Quantum Vibe / Re: Balmier?
« Last post by Archer on November 11, 2017, 11:30:34 am »
Both have the more or less same definition. Balmy is the North American version. Barmy is British.
Actually "balmy" is the formal version in both North American and British English. "Barmy" is a slang form used in Britain.
Theo is an educated Briton. Attended Eaton, Cambridge and Oxford, on scholarships.


Far be it from me to pick at nits, but this is not true. Barmy is and has always been the British way of calling someone a bit of a nut. It comes to us via the 15th century and the word barm, which meant "froth". Someone who is barmy is frothing mad and may require a soothing balm. Barm Cake - a type of light bread roll - have the same root: they're a bread-cake traditionally made with the yeasty froth (or barm) that formed on top of ale as it was brewing. Cakes made from "barm". Barm Cakes.

Balmy here means the weather is pleasant (the best time for drinking a decent ale and eating a barm and chips, if you ask me). If it is used as a synonym for barmy, it's extremely rare and probably a case of modern folk etymology sneaking in.

But what's a consonant between friends, after so many centuries gallivanting around the universe? :)

Thus he wouldn't have been one of the Cush cyborgs that attacked Murphy.

Now, the cyborgs that he was fighting (the last we saw him) were under the direct control of the Gamer Gods so once the conversation with Ethine started, the cyborgs might have stopped fighting him.

Now he might have continued to attack the cyborgs but I also doubt that the Gamer Gods would care how many cyborgs he destroyed.

Of course, I could be wrong.  ;)
