BHP Forum No More
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.

The Transcript For This Page
Leon enters the ISS's main bridge, Terry close behind. Everyone is there at various stations. Leon takes charge.
Leon: Report, Mr. Nasiff.
Everyone is omn-edge, but professional and serious. No one is panicking, however Moises is slightly more distraught than the rest.
Moises: We have been exposed, Captain.
Moises: The media aren't saying where they got the story. They are talking a lot about you, but not the rest of us. So, it looks as though they don't know who else is involved.
From behind Moises we see the rest of the crew and Leon listening intently.
Moises: Some of the blow-dries are saying that you have taken Svetlana, Henrique and Raymundo as hostages.
Moises: There is a lot of blah-blah about mounting a rescue and hanging the pirates from the yardarm.
Leon has a snarky look on his face as his crew laughs at his joke.
Leon: That's a pretty silly threat in zero-gee.
Leon becomes more serious as he asks Moises a question.
Leon: Anything official?
Moises: Well all of the ISS treat signatories—except the Russians—are transmitting impossible orders and unrealistic threats.
Moises: They are pretty much foaming at the mouth. When their ire goes down, I suspect they will dial it down a bit.
Smallish panel. Moises and Leon.
Moises: Shall I respond?
Leon: For now, no.
Close-up of Leon, looking intense.
Leon: However, I have the first draft of a statement I want us to make.
Leon: I need everyone's input.
