World-Building: Generation ShipThe Daedalus Seven is a vast generation ship with multiple, diverse habitats on a doomed, never-ending voyage. David Keener designed the ship, then challenged our inestimable writers with a serious world-building exercise. Their mission is to design the civilizations, flora, fauna, and geographical conditions of the ship’s remaining habitable areas. And then brainstorm about the types of stories that might occur on the ship.
