7 Types of Space Habitats

By:

I have made various adepts at creating lists of space stations and habitats, and such lists prove vexing. So rather than an exhaustive list, a list of types might prove more fruitful

1. Mining

Mining stations and habitats are involved with resource extraction (asteroid based mining colonies) resource refining (space based refineries and foundries) and the logistics involved. Mining stations are common, and can range from small automated facilities to large multi-nation enterprises.

2. Industrial

Industrial stations and habitats are closely related to mining operations, but these operations produce some sort of finished good. This can range from toys to spaceships, factory produced food to spaceship fuel. There are production facilities, warehousing, and logistic facilities.

3. Military

Space bases, fleet anchorages, space fortresses, training centers, logistic centers, supply dumps, etc

4. Commercial

Commercial stations and habitats are destinations, shopping Meccas, pleasure domes, exotic locales, and other destinations based around tourism and economic consumption and materialism.

5. Scientific

Research stations tend to be remote to keep outside interference to a minimum and to improve security for said facilities. This includes data archives, storage centers for genetic material, observation stations, and laboratories.

6. Colonial

People have to have a place to live and colonial stations and habitats are first a foremost residential structures.

7. Other

Prisons, black ops and secret bases, retro-tech, religious retreats.

Mesnoi

       By: Murometz

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
