A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly

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.

In the hearing room, Johanna, Antigone, Seamus face-palming, and Murphy angrily rising to her feet.
Johanna: The total death-count of Farnsworth's actions is conservatively estimated at slightly more than 1 billion …
Antigone: I was about to say ...
