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.
In a large conference hall, looking from the back to front, we see rows with several dozen people sitting in chairs, facing the front where we see sitting behind a table, to the left, Johanna, in the center, Antigone, and on the right, Seamus. There is a large viewscreen on the wall behind them. Antigone is speaking.
Antigone: I hereby convene this extraordinary hearing, in conformity with provisions of the Treaty of Tycho ...
Three-shot of Seamus, looking subdued in his Faraday helmet, Antigone, still speaking, and Johanna, wearing her poker face.
Antigone: It is alleged that Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, a resident of L-5 City, is in fact the infamous Theophilus Farnsworth, of West Terra, instigator of the Calamities.
Antigone: Dr. Johanna Diamondi so alleges, and seeks to extradite O'Murchadha to West Terra for trial.
Voice from off-panel: Objection!
Angle shot to include Murphy, who has stepped forward from the front row of the gallery.
Antigone: Murphy, advocate for O'Murchadha, is recognized. What is your basis?
Murphy: Thank you. If my client's accuser is to be considered on equal footing with my client, should she not also be required to wear a Faraday helmet?
Johanna is outraged, Antigone looks amused.
Johanna: That's ridiculous! Farnsworth's helmet is there for security reasons!
Antigone: And how good is our security here should I rule against you?
Antigone: Objection sustained. Dr. Diamondi, either you don a Faraday helmet of your own or remove O'Murchadha's.
