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.
Lorelei is not amused.
Lorelei: Gourdammit, Marty, this is no joking matter.
Lorelei: Millions of lives are at stake here!
Lorelei: You should begin testing right away!
Dominic (OP): Sure thing, Senhora deCleyre ...
Dominic (Marty) explains, ticking off points on his fingers.
Dominic: All we need to do is:
Dominic: 1) Find a massive iron rock shaped like a missile.
Dominic: 2) Accelerate it up to 90 percent of lightspeed.
Dominic: 3) Get someone to shoot it at us without warning, to see if we can spot it in time.
Focus on Lorelei with Alyss, the latter looking at the former with amusement.
Lorelei: How long would that take to set up?
Dominic (OP): The second part will take at least a year, if nothing goes wrong and we use a smaller rock.
Lorelei: Oh. That's a problem.
Back to Dominic, looking darkly mischievous.
Dominic: Long before then, our mysterious 'friends' will likely take care of the third part for us.
Dominic: Every part of my system is functioning. The simulations all look good.
Dominic: But the real test … well, that will be the only one that counts.
