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.
The Ha'arock is gliding into a 'slip' – a smaller bay with pressure and a landing pad, the opening covered with a force-field.
Caption: A short while later:
Eithne (from ship): Finally! I can't wait to stretch my legs.
Ralf (from ship): I'm afraid you'll need to stay on board.
Eithne does not like that, and turns angrily towards Ralf.
Eithne: WHAT!! That's ridiculous.
Ralf: By now half the quadrant is on alert, looking for you.
Eithne: Oh yeah? What about you?
Ralf is standing by his seat, stretching his core a bit.
Ralf: I'm just another K'Tagon. There are many thousands like me in the border areas.
Ralf: But you, you're unique. The only 'human' anyone's seen in this galaxy.
Ralf: You'll be spotted within a hundred seconds.
Eithne follows Ralf as he walks towards the rear of the cruiser.
Eithne: I'll go insane if I have to stay cooped-up in here all the time!
Eithne: Maybe I can wear a disguise! Surely we can put something together here, the same way we 'replicated' these clothes!
Ralf pauses, looking Eithne up and down with an artist's eye. She's looking back at him dubiously.
Ralf: Hmmm. Quite possibly. With the right fabrics, a few prosthetics ...
Ralf: I'll have to take some precise measurements, if you please.
A transformed Eithne looks at her image in a tall viewscreen. Ralf looks on with satisfaction. Eithne looks like a two-legged warthog.
Ralf: Your own mother wouldn't recognize you.
Eithne: I hope not. This is embarrassing.
