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.
Nicole jumps back in fright. Murphy smiles gently at her.
Nicole: You're … you're not … I mean ...
Nicole steps cautiously back towards the table, as Murphy, while not anything aside from her eyes and mouth, speaks to her.
Murphy: I'm back. After a fashion.
Murphy: Although I'm not exactly the same me I was before.
Looking past Nicole at Murphy.
Murphy: My old brain was destroyed, as you probably know.
Murphy: Turns out Seamus had a spare.
Nicole: A spare brain? Who the hell carries around a spare brain?
Seamus appears in an entryway.
Seamus: Someone who is very old, and has very important work to be done.
Seamus, Murphy, Nicole. Murphy has not moved.
Seamus: I had been preparing it for emergency uploading, in case I suffer some mishap.
Seamus: But considering the service Murphy has done both of us, I reckoned she should have it instead.
Nicole: Why can't she move?
Seamus: It takes time to integrate something as complex as a new brain into an android body.
Seamus: Murphy has to learn how to move her body all over again.
Murphy (to Seamus): I think I'm ready to try again.
Same shot, Seamus has moved his hand to the back of her head.
Seamus: Very well, engaging your motor-cortex interface now.
Seamus: Try raising your left arm straight up.
Murphy's arm swings wildly and smacks Nicole in the face.
Seamus: Hmmm. You need more time.
