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.
The kids are wide-eyed in mixed excitement and fear.
Bok: That was no elevator we were in! That was ...
Zander: A Murphy Capsule!
Diana: But how did it get through Zytemonde's Oresme Shield?
Medium shot of Michael, glancing sideways at the kids, dismissively.
Michael: Oh, please.
Michael: Zytemode's technology is nearly 350 years out of date.
Michael: Getting through was child's play.
Bok is bedazzled. Zander looks at him curiously. Diana is getting angry.
Bok: So … the story my father told me really was true.
Zok: You doubted it?
Diana: This is just as I feared. Alien interference.
Diana: We've been kidnapped.
The kids argue.
Bok: Kidnapped? What do you mean? We were rescued!
Diana: We weren't given a choice!
Bok: You made your choice when you killed that Cor-bot, Diana.
Michael addresses Diana.
Michael: Am I to understand that you … murdered an arti-person?
Diana: That … 'arti-person' tried to arrest us, and fried Alyss' right hand.
Michael: Self-defense, then. But if you are here unwillingly, I can return you to the scene you departed.
Bok and Zander smirk a bit as Diana demurs.
Diana: Uh, no, that's okay. Here's good, for a while anyway.
Michael: Very well. Would you like some refreshments while you wait for the mistress to convalesce?
Michael: I could also put on some vids from your homeworld. They'll be half a year out-of-date, though.
