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
Chang facing off against Rhonda, who is still leaning on the Hotel exterior railing.
Ed: And if I should refuse to play in your drama?
Close-up on Rhonda, looking as evil as you can make her.
Rhonda: A little 12-year-old girl will be gang raped, cut up in little pieces and scattered all over Ceres City.
Looking past Rhonda to focus on Ed, who looks openly disgusted.
Rhonda: But if you put on a good show, the girl goes free. Got it?
Ed: You have … men who would do that?
Rhonda: They're a special cadre. Chang doesn't even know they were embedded under his command.
Rhonda: I guess you could call them psychopaths too, although the DSM uses the term, 'antisocial personality disorder.'
Looking past Rhonda at Ed, who now has his poker face on.
Rhonda: The military calls them 'Special Services Operatives.'
Rhonda: They follow any orders I give them.
Ed turns to walk away, but has a few last words to Rhonda.
Ed: Have your boy out front of the hotel in four centimes … that's about an hour.
Ed is back at Chez Treif, in a huddle with Bert, Ernie, Vinnie, Neil.
Caption: Ed and the other Belters talked among themselves and at some point, a consensus was reached.
