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.
Seamus' suite. In the foreground, Nicole is seated at a small table, reading something on her Screen, a cup of warm beverage in hand. In the background, Murphy is exiting Seamus' bedroom as the door irises closed behind her.
Murphy: He's going to sleep now.
Nicole (not quite paying attention): Hm
Murphy stands next to the table where Nicole is seated. She seems troubled.
Murphy: He's always retiring early. He seems to sleep a lot.
Nicole: Well, he's really old – 339 years, I think. Oldest man in the System, maybe.
Murphy leans against a chair, looking a bit tired herself.
Murphy: My former … Po Xu-ke was the oldest – 400 Terran years when he died.
Murphy: There are currently eleven other humans in the System older than 340 years, according to Longevity Matrix.
Nicole grins wryly at Murphy, who does not appreciate her tone.
Nicole: Po Xu-ke was your … master? He was your owner, wasn't he? Did he like to tie you up and ...
Murphy: He loved me. And … I loved him.
