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
Group shot of our heroes sitting around the coffee table. Focus is on Bert, who is speaking. Drenkowski is sitting somewhere to the right of Bert. Arana is close to his left side.
Bert: Okay, let's recap:
Bert: Mac, Nisa, Ernie and I will be transported to the Groom Lake facility by Commander Drenkowski in his almost-invisible spaceplane.
Drenkowski: The Free Bird.
Closer shot on Bert, angled so we can also see a smiling Arana.
Bert: Yeah, great name suggestion, Arana.
Bert: The Commander will keep the motor running, while the rest of us go in to get Neanne and Nowra.
Medium close-up on Bert.
Bert: The rest of Nowra's family were shipped home a couple of decadays ago.
Bert: That simplifies things, but it also tells us we may not have a lot of time.
High angle shot of the whole group again, Bert gesturing as he speaks.
Bert: Ernie and I will act as lookouts and provide suppressing fire – but only as a last resort.
Bert: We want to waltz in and out with nobody being the wiser.
Shot including Tobi, flanked by Nisa and Mac, listening to Bert.
Bert (OP): Nisa and Mac will go in and locate Neanne and Nowra, and escort them out.
Bert (OP): We'll comm Nowra when we land so they'll be ready.
Final group shot, lower angle, focus on Bert. Some of the characters will have to have their backs to us.
Bert: Ernie and I will cover the rear, then Drenkowski will fly us out.
Bert: Easy peasy, lemon-squeezy.
