I've been doing some more thinking about the idea. I'm just not good at sitting down and writing this stuff out.
But anyway. The setting I'm thinking of is a space station. It's an old refitted science station that had been previously abandoned for several decades. A few years ago it was purchased by an interstellar tycoon as a family resort, due to the remote star system it orbits, but got turned into something of a jail after his eldest daughter was caught in an embarrassing public scandal.
Not to take her exile lightly, the girl smuggled on board her boy-toy and used her own assets to begin transforming it into a clothing optional resort. Its been about 5 years since Distant Voyage opened its docks for visitors and residents but has grown quickly into something of an alternative living haven. It has a permanent resident population of around 12,000 though it can support up to 160,000
The station is built in the style of a stanford torus. It consists of two concentric rings that orbit around a central hub.
Ring 1 - Resort & Agricultural Ring - Contains living and pleasure facilities for both guests and residents. Many companies lease sections of the ring for private use. The gravity out here is closest to that of being on an earth-like planet. Much of this ring is completely unused due to the station only having to support a fraction of the population it was designed for. Its been heavily remodeled to resemble nature preserves on garden planets. Most of the population gathers around the areas that are closes to transport hubs, especially inter-ring transports.
Ring 2 - Residences & Industry - Being light centuries from the nearest Type-1 civilization Distant Voyage has to produce a lot of its material on site. There are a few rocky planets within the solar system that support mining and refining colonies, but none are more suitable for life than the station. Refined materials get shipped to this ring to be turned into useful materials. Permanent residents also live on this ring. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
