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.
On a holoscreen, we see the image of Byron Tchaikovsky, a foppish streamer, mugging for the camera. The background is filled with the trademark 'BYRON' logo.
Byron: Good day, good day, my darlings! I'm Byron Tchaikovsky and I question everything!
Byron: Our question today is, has the venerable Smith & Holder Assurance agency gone off the rails? Jumped the shark? Lost its cool?
Byron is on the left side of the frame, filling the rest is an image of Diana as she was being medically treated at deClayre's mansion. She is naked under a sheet, her right arm laid bare to show the horrible broken fore-arm.
Byron: One of its agents, who we have recently identified, viciously assaulted a young refugee, Diana Martelli, while confronting her at her job.
On a broadcast set, we now see Byron seated in a tall chair next to Lorelei, also seated in a tall chair. Lorelei has been dolled up to look younger than before. The chairs are on a slightly raised platform.
Byron: She was able to flee the agent and found refuge with none other than Lorelei Wodenstar deClayre, who has become the girl's protector.
Caption: The way Bostwick dolled Lorelei up, she looked closer to 20 than 240.
Pull back farther to include a very uncomfortable-looking Diana sitting on another tall chair on the right of Lorelei. Her hair is waxed down, and her clothing makes her look like a tall 12-year-old.
Byron: Today we have Senhora deClayre with us in studio, and also the young Diana Martelli herself! May I call you Diana?
Diana: Uh, sure.
Caption: What that little fucker did to me, I will never forgive.
