Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
Diana's bedroom, Diana is in the bed, all tangled up in sheets and pillows in a comically odd position. Hair looks like a rat's nest. One bleary eye has popped open.
Caption: I always try to sleep-in on quintas, but I can't seem to manage it.
Caption: My cortical implant knows what time it is, and some part of me feels, I dunno, guilty if I'm not doing something useful.
Diana in the shower stall. Waist-up, nude. She's washing her hair as the water sprays on head, neck, shoulders.
Caption: First useful thing, after morning ablutions, is refilling my larder.
Caption: It was a challenge, finding a place with a shower stall. Most people here seem to like those ‘clean screens’ that you just step through. It’s certainly faster.
Caption: But one of the more difficult things I had to learn, living here, is the right way to buy groceries.
Now dressed for the day, Diana sits in a breakfast nook, eating from a small plate, coffee mug at hand. She's gazing at a small holo-screen facing her from the opposite side of the table.
Caption: Like, don't shop when you're hungry. You waste your money on junk. So, eat something first.
Caption: And do your homework. Know what foods you need, and where to get the best quality for the price. This changes frequently, so it pays to check the anuncios before heading out.
Diana heading out her apartment door. She has her coat on and is picking up her flycar-briefcase.
Caption: Where I came from, the 'bots selected your food for you, and delivered it every few days. Scientifically-balanced nutrition, no human effort, or thought, required.
Caption: They also added a drug that made most people docile and stupid, so I guess even free groceries have a price.
