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.
In a cameo, present-Hugo narrates the new scene – the workshop on Causa Sui. Hugo is up to his elbows in gear he's working on.
Hugo (cameo): Our displacement drive gives us an advantage, but the Fftpplt had an important one over us ...
Hugo: … their ability to detect ships up to a light-year away, with almost no light-speed delay.
Repeat of panel 3 from strip 78 showing Hugo leaning against a console aboard the starship Pbbttppbt-fff. Present-Hugo is still in a cameo, narrating.
Hugo (cameo): Fortunately while I was aboard the Pbbttppbt-fff I was able to surreptitiously access their systems database.
Hugo: I learned how their warp drive works, and their sub-space radio and scanners as well.
Back to Alyss' living room. Alyss is scandalized.
Alyss: You mean … you stole the aliens' data?
Hugo: I invaded their systems, yes. But I didn't steal anything.
Hugo: I left everything where I found it.
