Well, let me finish reading the background and we'll see ;-)

Noumenon used generation fleets quite well (Marina J. Lostetter)
Hull Zero Three did the generation ship thing well (Greg Bear)
Aurora is on my list to read (Kim Stanley Robinson)

Passengers (2016) looks at this but personally I don't like the film because I think the male character is a dick*.

*explaining this:
I don't have an issue with the actor, I just have an issue with way that the character woke up the female passenger and condemned her to the same fate because he was looking for an attractive companion. Just felt very wrong to me, and not 'romance' which is one of the categories the film is listed under.

This is the playset that we are using...

Generation_Ship_cover_2fa25aa4-1942-4038-9bce-0878abc408cc.png


This is the blurb:

YOU’RE TRAPPED INSIDE THE HEART OF A DECAYING GENERATION SHIP DRIFTING BETWEEN THE STARS. HOW WILL YOU SURVIVE AND FIND A NEW HOME?
Your families woke up from cryostasis half way through a thousand year journey. Now you must find a way to live on a ship that wasn’t intended to support long-term habitation, keep it running, and try to make sure future generations reach the promised land at the end of your journey.

Generation Ship is an alternate setting for Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Edition focusing on mankind’s struggle to survive a perilous journey between the stars.


More soon...
