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.
Establishing shot of Drusilla and Max in their vid studio.
Drusilla: So today we have reached a turning point in the Kornbluth & Company saga.
Max: Kornbluth has cooperated with our investigators, although not by opening their books as we asked ...
Two-shot of Drusilla and Max.
Drusilla: … instead Kornbluth himself invited us to tour the testing facilities ourselves.
Max: I wasn't able to attend, but I understand it was quite an eye-opener, eh, Dru?
Drusilla: You can say that again, Max.
Video clip of Drusilla being shown around an industrial plant by Kornbluth, a nerdy-looking fellow.
Drusilla (voice-over): He showed us the process by which werpolitzi are tested, and records of the results showing no change in quality of the materials.
Drusilla: What's more, an anonymous source has forwarded records of secret communiques among the six largest buyers ...
Medium close-up on Drusilla.
Drusilla: Indicating they had been in collusion, in a plot to degrade the reputation of the four major werpolitzi suppliers!
Drusilla: Some are speculating that these buyers wanted to force the suppliers to re-negotiate their contracts to get lower prices for their goods.
Drusilla: Kornbluth and Company were an obstacle to that plan, which is why the same six schemers launched a smear campaign against Kornbluth!
Diana sits looking at the monitor screen, her arms crossed.
Diana (thought): A smear campaign you clowns happily went along with, at least at first.
Diana: I wonder if all their reporting is like this?
Diana: These stories were from 10 days ago. I wonder what they're up to currently?
Looking over Diana's shoulder at the monitor, which is showing a news page with a headline, 'Drusilla and Max Program Suspended' and underneath, 'Producers ponder how to proceed after the death of Max Marrón.' Include a stock photo of Max and a grieving Drusilla. Some body copy which is illegible.
Diana: Puta merda!
