Story & Art: Scott 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.
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.
Back in the L-5 City, Nicole enters an establishment identified by a sign, 'Alizadeh Interfacing.'
Caption: In the Arch, L-5 City.
Nicole stands before a receptionist desk, behind which is seated another young-looking woman of apparent Iranian extraction. Nicole is handing the woman a card.
Nicole: I'm Nicole Oresme, here for my 13:00 appointment. This is my referral.
Medium close-up of the receptionist looking at the card, eyes widening.
A rather large and not-too-bright-looking Persian man appears instantly next to the Receptionist, somewhat startling Nicole.
Receptionist: Escort this honored client to the preparation room at once.
The preparation room. Peyman remains by the door as Nicole enters. Also in the room are Farzad Alizadeh, a middle-aged Persian man, and a young, bright-looking male assistant, Yousef. Front and center is something that looks like a dentist's chair.
Farzad: Welcome, Ms. Oresme. I am Dr. Farzad Alizadeh and this is my assistant, Yousef.
Farzad: Please have a seat and we'll get started right away.
Three-shot of Farzad, Yousef and Nicole in the chair, looking slightly uncomfortable.
Farzad: You are to be receiving the M-6460 Series Cortical Processor Implant, the very latest, yes?
Farzad: Yousef, begin the anesthetic procedure.
Same shot. Youself is holding up a small facial breathing mask, but is interrupted by Nicole.
Nicole: Ah, no offense intended, but I'd feel more comfortable with a female assistant, please?
Farzad: Of course.
Suddenly, in place of Youself is a handsome young Persian woman. Nicole looks impressed.
Farzad: This is Niki.
Nicole: Now, that's customer service.
Farzad: Your employer Dr. Murtagh always demands the best.
