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.
Cut to: Interior of the dry-dock housing Eva Jeanne. Dialog comes from inside the ship.
Caption: At the dry-dock housing Alyss Roaz' ship, the Eva Jeanne, the next day:
Sheldon: … So eventually they formed three groups: one for boosting public morale, one for victim support, and one for light combat training and street-level intel.
Alyss: We need better strategies for dealing with saboteurs.
Alyss is at her workstation aboard the ship, conversing with Sheldon Rico, who is on her main screen. Michael is nearby.
Sheldon: More and more I am hearing suggestions to abandon our customs regarding privacy and set up a centralized surveillance and tracking system.
Alyss: No! We must never go down that path!
Focus on Alyss
Alyss: In my 535 years I've seen too many once-free societies end themselves by surrendering liberty in pursuit of safety.
Alyss: They wound up with neither. New Anarkia, El Verdor, Novo México, L-5 City, The Republic of Luna, the United States of America. All gone.
Same scene new angle including Michael
Michael: Yeah and don't forget Galt's Planetoid.
Alyss (to Michael): You promised not to mention Galt's Planetoid again.
