Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?
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.
Boney and Alyss in Alyss' reception room. She is looking at Zander's gadget.
Boney: So Bok said it's able to un-lock buggies.
Boney: But he couldn't test it further because, you know ...
Alyss: Yes yes, the buggies are network-linked.
Alyss has pulled the cover off the gadget, examining its internal workings.
Boney: So, we figured you could add some programming to block the network link?
Alyss: Oh, is that what you figured?
Boney: Uh, you can, can't you?
Alyss replaces the cover.
Alyss: In my sleep. But that's not what's most interesting here.
Alyss: This culture discourages human access to technology, beyond a certain level.
Alyss: The Central A.I. doesn't like disruptions in its planning.
Alyss begins pacing as she speaks. Boney follows her.
Boney: Yeah, that's what you ...
Alyss: And yet, here we have this child, completely self-taught, putting together a sophisticated device, practically using stone knives and bear skins.
Boney: Well, actually it was salvaged scraps from … ah … discards.
Alyss continues pacing, Boney blushes a bit.
Alyss: You mean, stolen goods and items selected out of the Dispensaries.
Boney: Well, yeah, I mean ...
Alyss: The point is, this child is a freaking genius to have built such a thing.
Alyss turns to face Boney.
Alyss: I must meet this boy , bring him into the group. Can you arrange it?
Boney: Well, it will take some doing, but I think I can get Bok to help me.
