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.
Nicole relaxes out of her fetal pose, recovering her composure.
Nicole: I … I guess you're right. I'm committed now, gotta see this through.
Murphy: That's my girl.
Murphy backs up a bit, but is still solicitous. She has Nicole's attention.
Murphy: So, it's 125 days to 19521 Chaos, you know.
Murphy: I packed a flask of your favorite chocolate whisky in my rucksack.
Nicole and Murphy.
Murphy: How about I fix you a drink and then you can climb into the hibernation bed?
Murphy: I'll mind the store …
Nicole: I'll take the drink, but not the sleep.
Nicole moves back to her couch, slipping her arms and ankles through the straps.
Nicole: If something goes wrong I want to see it coming.
Murphy: Nothing is going to go wrong. All systems are functioning at 100 percent.
Murphy: Nothing can come at us that I won't see coming from a long way out.
Nicole is stubborn, Murphy moves to exit the lounge.
Nicole: Maybe later. I'm staying here now.
Murphy: Suit yourself. I'll be right back with your drink.
In the lounge, Nicole sips on her drink, Murphy has returned to her couch and rests quietly, eyes closed.
Same shot. Nicole's empty drink cup floats close-by, Nicole is looking seriously bored. She doesn't notice as Murphy peers at her through one eye.
Nicole and Murphy both begin moving away from their couches.
Nicole: All right, I've had about as much of this as I can stand.
Murphy: I'll prepare the hibernation bed.
