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: Diana's workstation in the property-recovery department at Cooper Security. She is focused intently at the Screen.
Caption: Diana had expected her job in the property-recovery section of Cooper Security would be as mundane as her old job working for Juan Goméz had been.
Caption: Instead it was much more complicated.
Diana from POV the screen. She's furrowing her brow in frustration.
Caption: A shipment of highly valuable Drangolian Werpolitzi had gone missing from the Kornbluth testing facility in Braunfels Sphere.
Caption: Kornbluth is contracted with Cooper Security so it's up to Diana to track the stolen goods down and recover them if possible.
She leans back in her chair, momentarily defeated.
Caption: Each 'batch' of Drangolian Werpolitzi has a unique identifier code embedded within, making it easier to track.
Caption: So long as anyone handling it is part of the Kim-Favreau Compact, which allows her to search their transfer records.
Caption: But many operations aren't part of the Compact.
Shift focus, Diana has that crafty look, and we can see Lester at another workstation a few meters away, glancing over at her.
Caption: There are ways around such difficulties, but she isn't cleared for accessing data volumes that sensitive.
Caption: The obvious solution is to go work on her 'babysitter.'
