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.
Establishing shot of the planet Parangaricutiro – a broken-apart world with one-third of its mass being orbital debris. In the middle-ground we see the starship popping into the area.
Hugo (from ship): Ah, Parangaricutiro. So tragically beautiful.
Murphy: Also quite deadly. On the surface as well as in orbit.
Hugo: Well, planetary collisions tend to work out that way.
Cut to the control room. Eithne, Murphy and Hugo in their chairs, looking a bit tense.
Murphy: Not to mention, the perfect place to put this ship's gravity and reaction drives through their paces.
Hugo: If by 'perfect' you mean unforgiving.
Murphy: Don't be a pussy, Hugo.
External view, the ship weaves and dodges its way through the debris-field.
Eithne: Ulp! W-we didn't do this on the last shake-down, Murphy!
Murphy: Last time Hugo was captain. And Eithne, if you don't have the stones for stuff like this, you can stay home when we head into deep space.
