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.

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.
Inside the lift, Bill has his helmet off and his palm aside his ear.
Bill: Manny, I'm headed your way. Anything new?
Manny: I've resolved the most probable destination for Baines.
Bill has stopped on the crew quarters deck, and is stashing his suit in a cabinet.
Bill: Don't leave me hanging, Manny.
Manny: Remember that freighter I told you was gonna pass within 5 million klicks of us?
Exterior view of the Cissonius rocketing through space (because we haven't seen this in a while).
Bill: Don't tell me – he's gonna rendezvous with the freighter.
Manny: Looks like it, yeah.
Manny: I hailed the freighter and got a canned response.
Bill has reached the control deck, is poking head and shoulders through the hatch as he speaks with Manny. They both look unhappy.
Bill: Where's that freighter bound?
Manny: Herschel Station, around Titan.
Bill: GENSAXWAL Security Domain. Damn.
Manny: You said a mouthful.
