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.
A waiting area at the Cooper Security office. Diana is seated, looking a bit nervous.
Caption: Elsewhere in the City, at the offices of Cooper Securidad:
Diana (thought): Alright, Diana, keep it together. You've done all manner of interviews.
Diana: And you've dealt with Sergio Cooper before, even worked with him.
Another angle on Diana.
Diana (thought): He was an advisor to Alyss at our trial over the Château Périlleux affair.
Diana: We first met when Lorelei DeCleyre arranged to have me 'surrender' to him as Byron Tchaikovsky live-streamed the event.
Diana: Kinda weird, though, my memories from that time seem a bit … distanced.
Diana: Like I'm remembering something I watched on a video ...
Secretary: Senhora Martelli?
Diana rises quickly her feet as the secretary calls out from her desk, and gestures towards a door next to her.
Secretary: Senhor Cooper will see you now. Please go right in
Diana: Ah … thank you.
In her haste, Diana trips over her own foot. The Secretary is laconic.
Secretary: He can be a charmer, but try not to fall for him before you even get in the door.
