Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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 giant iron asteroid from strips 010-012 zooms by.
Caption: The iron asteroid pops up near Star Gamma of the Five-Star system.
Caption: It carries with it the same momentum towards the local gravity well as it had from the system from which it Displaced.
The asteroid swerves around Star Gamma and continues onward.
Caption: Using its on-board gravity drive, the asteroid arcs around the star, rather than diving into it.
Caption: It is now on-course for the Five Suns' barycenter.
The asteroid plummets towards its destination.
Caption: It passes within less than a million klicks from PS-187, but remains undetected.
The asteroid smashes into Bubbleopolis, creating a huge explosion.
Caption: One hundred seventy seconds later, it smashes into one of the Borvonite spheres protecting Bubbleopolis.
Caption: The impact releases more than 252 Septillion Joules of energy. Or, more than four Chicxulub meteor impacts.
