A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Exterior of elevated monorail trundling towards a residence tower about two klicks distant.
Zander (from inside monorail car): You haven't said much since art class. Are you burned about Ophelia?
Bok (from inside car): Huh? Ophelia –?
Bok: Ah, no, it's just that I've got other stuff on my mind.
Inside the car, Zander and Bok suddenly lurch forward in their seats.
Zander: What other … AACK!!!
Zander peers out the window. Bok is reaching into his rucksack.
Zander: Oh, shuck me. Another power failure.
Zander: This is ridiculous! We're stuck only a klip or so from the next station!
Bok: We're also the only people in this car. Time to test this little gizmo
Bok is over by the door to the car, holding a small gadget against it, as Zander comes up behind him.
Zander: It should work, of course, but Bok! Where will you go? It's a 50-peter drop straight down!
Bok: We're over a lake here. The water should be nice and deep. I think.
Zander: You're out of your mind!
Zander grabs the tail of Bok's vest, pleading with him. The door is now open, and Bok is pulling the rucksack straps over both shoulders.
Zander: I made that opener for emergencies! What will I tell the Corbots?
Bok: This IS an emergency. I've got stuff to do and no time to waste.
Bok: If anyone asks tell 'em the door popped open by itself.
Bok dives out of the monorail car as Zander calls after him.
Bok dives into the lake, making a substantial splash.
