Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.
Seamus chats with two guests, one male and one female. Their 'accessories' stand a bit back and form a circle around them.
Male guest: So, you knew Dr. Po at the time he developed the Karyopherin-Dimorphic Phosphorlyzation process?
Seamus: A few decades prior to that, actually. We met at one of the Science Reconciliation Conferences after the end of the First Mercorp War.
Three-shot of Seamus and the two guests, some of the 'accessories' visible.
Female guest: The first war! He must have been quite young then.
Seamus: He had just turned 40 -- in Terran years anyway. Conditions here were quite challenging then. Everyone was either in caves or enclosed surface habitats.
Three-shot of Seamus and the two guests. We can see Nicole looking bored.
Female guest: But the terraforming project had begun more than 50 years earlier!
Seamus: Yes, but it was a slow process. It would be -- ah --80 more Huoxing years before the outdoor air could be safely breathed.
Similar shot. Nicole suppresses a yawn. Seamus smiles at his own joke.
Female guest: I was born in 221 -- by our calendar. I don't recall not being able to breathe outdoors.
Seamus: That would be 434 by my calendar -- but what's 213 years among friends?
