Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
Seamus and Nicole riding the same elevator they were in shortly after they first arrived at Ishtar Station. They are both looking tired.
Caption: A few uneventful hours later, back at Ishtar Station:
Seamus: Now, for a good 8 hours' rest and we can prepare to meet your mother at Pellucidar.
Closer 2-shot of Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Is there a problem?
Nicole: I'm not sure now that I should take you to meet Mother.
The two emerge from the lift into a busy concourse. Seamus is expressing a mix of surprise and mild grief. Nicole looks a bit grim.
Seamus: I beg your pardon?
Seamus: I promise to shower and put on a clean mu-mu.
Seamus and Nicole walk down a corridor.
Nicole: It's not your body odor – which is surprisingly inoffensive, given, well, given the circumstances.
Seamus: Well, that's a relief.
The two approach the entrance to their hotel, the Óstán O'Siodhachain .
Nicole: Maybe it's not your fault, but you attract danger, Seamus.
Nicole: And I don't want to expose my mother to that.
Seamus and Nicole make their way through the hotel lobby. Nicole is looking exasperated.
Seamus: Are you serious?
Nicole: Am I serious? Seamus, first someone tried to kill us on Mercury, and just a few hours ago we were nearly shanghaied by East Terrans, according to your speculation.
Seamus and Nicole walking down a hotel corridor, approaching their rooms.
Seamus: Nicole, believe me, your mother would not be endangered by meeting us.
At the door to Nicole's room, she's standing just inside the doorway, facing Seamus who is still in the corridor.
Seamus: Let's continue this discussion in the morning when we're both refreshed, eh?
Nicole: All right, Seamus. Good night.
