Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go!
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.
Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.
SubscribeStar update: Not yet
The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.
For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.
The Transcript For This Page
A somewhat high-angled shot looking past Buzz perched atop the trolley in the foreground at the girls. Fiorella has taken one of the jump-suits off the rack and his holding it in front of her, the way women do when they're considering a new dress. Doris is looking and speaking to Buzz.
Buzz: When you are ready for breakfast, please let me know what you would like and I will see that it is delivered.
Doris: So Buzz, is there anything fun to do around here?
Same shot. Buzz remains silently perched atop the trolley. The girls are puzzled by the silence and are glancing at each other.
Switch angle so that the girls are in the foreground, Buzz on the trolley in the background. The girls are reacting like someone is dragging fingernails across the blackboard.
Buzz: Ah, that was meant as a joke, wasn't it?
Two-shot of Doris and Buzz, however you can manage it.
Doris: Buzz! Never make that sound again!
Buzz: Yes Doris.
Wide shot. The girls and Buzz and the trolley to the left side; to the right is a large section of the wall that is clearly a framed flat-video monitor, about 120-inch diagonal. Currently displaying an abstract swirl of colors. The girls are turning to look at it as Buzz speaks.
Buzz: The wall screens are voice interactive.
Buzz: The default command initiator is 'Screen,' however you may reset to another initiator.
Buzz: The screen can be queried for information about the Park and its attractions.
Doris stands squarely before the screen and addresses it.
Screen: Yes, Doris.
Medium close-up of Doris.
Doris: I wish to address you as 'Computer.' Can you respond like the computer in the original Star Trek TV series?
Two-shot of Doris and Fiorella; Fiorella is gazing at the screen which is off-panel behind the camera; Doris is glancing at Fiorella and smiling a bit sheepishly.
Screen (in a different, retro sort of font): Working.
Doris: I love the classics.
