Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke 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.
Same scene, Seamus is lecturing the girls.
Seamus: It may well be that Ma Bo-Nu deserved his fate.
Seamus: And in L-5 City, or in the Belt, you might have a good case.
Seamus: But this is Huoxing and Buford's rash action has placed us all in jeopardy.
Medium close-up on Seamus.
Seamus: So our focus now must be on getting off Huoxing -- as quietly as possible.
Seamus: Once we're at the Stickney Spaceport on Phobos, we should be out of danger.
Seamus: But until we get there, I want no more screw-ups, understand?
Looking past Seamus at the girls. Nicole, still inebriated, is giving Seamus a mock-salute. Buford is more subdued, and Ventura looks apprehensive.
Nicole: Roger wilco, bossaroonie!
Buford: Understood, sir. I'll do my job.
Ventura: But, what is to become of me? Nicole said ...
Two-shot of Seamus and Ventura (we'll also see Nicole in the frame), Seamus looks at the android tenderly.
Seamus: Veronica, I promise that I will do my best to honor Po Xu-ke's wishes for you.
Seamus: At the very least, I'll get you off-world.
Seamus: But, you'll have to trust me.
