Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.
On the bridge of Pbbttppbt-fff, the Captain and his two ranking officers.
Officer 1 (translated): The first raider's power is down to 3 percent and dropping!
Officer 2: The second raider is warping out of orbit!
CP: I wish we could do the same, but there are lives on that freighter.
Another 3-shot of CP and his bridge officers.
CP: Position us between the Pffbbtt-Btt and that raider! Full power to the shields!
CP: When their anti-matter containment fails, we may all need rescuing!
Officer 2: The first raider is dumping her power core!
Exterior shot as Pbbttppbt-fff makes her stand next to the freighter.
CP (from ship): Send a general warning to ground and Causa Sui! When that ship blows, radiation will be off the scale!
Officer 2: Ma'am, the Causa Sui isn't moving away.
CP: Didn't those fools hear our warning?
Back on the bridge, CP and her officers.
Officer 1: Causa Sui has acknowledged our broadcast.
Officer 2: Captain ... the raider's power core has … disappeared.
CP: What? How?
Exterior view, off the port beam of Pbbttppbt-fff, a distant flash can be seen.
Caption: Eleven seconds later:
Officer 1 (from ship): Sir … anti-matter explosion detected, at 282 mark 31.
Officer 1: Distance … 1.3 mega-measures!
Officer 2: Incoming message from Causa Sui ...
A resolute Murphy appears on the viewscreen.
CP: On screen.
Murphy (translated): I would very much like to have my officer returned, if it's not too much trouble.
