To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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.
Cut back to 'the present' in Alyss's living room. Alyss is curled up in her chair, as Hugo and Murphy continue their narration.
Alyss: Ha-ha! Eithne was always a head-strong little scamp. I'm glad you shut her down.
Murphy: Well, nobody truly shuts Eithne down ...
Cut to: the control room on the starship. Now all three, Eithne, Murphy and Hugo, are seated in chairs.
Eithne: I don't see why we have to do another shake-down cruise. I fixed all the problems we had with the last ship.
Murphy: And perhaps introduced new problems in the redesign.
Hugo: For all we know it was a ship systems-failure that killed us previously.
Eithne looks thoughtful.
Eithne: I doubt it, but … suppose your previous selves weren't killed, just stranded?
Murphy: I've been wondering about that, too.
Hugo: There's an old Australian saying that if you walk about long enough, you'll find yourself.
