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.
In space, an external view of a perimeter station, beyond which we can see something streaking past.
Caption: Perimeter Station 273 detected a high-speed object appearing at coordinates 18:57:102 and moving toward the City. It reported the event via q-wave.
Caption: Spectral analysis indicated it was made of iron and moving at .915C
In the distance, the City. In the left foreground, we see the missile streaking towards it.
Caption: More reports from tracking stations inward verify the sighting and automated systems quickly refine the object's projected track.
Caption: By the time the track is solved to within 10 meters, the object is 20 seconds from impact with the City.
The city is noticably closer now, but a large green hexagon has appeared in the missile's path.
Caption: Deslocação Dinámico has had the ability to project Dislocator Portals at a distance for a few decades, now.
Caption: But no one has ever projected one at such a distance and been able to target it so precisely.
Panel split horizontally. In the upper half, we see the missile enter the portal. In the lower one, we see it streaking away towards a new destination: a double black-hole.
Caption: And this is how you stop an unstoppable force from smacking you in the face.
