Set sail across the cosmos as a bunch of easygoing miners
As any interstellar race goes, you have been given a predefined job for a big company mining asteroids for various resources that are worthless to you. So you’ve just got to do your daily job digging whilst trying to stay alive. Pretty simple.
I had the initial idea for Spacemole after reading the synopsis for the novel “The Stars My Destination“ by Alfred Bester. I’m in the process of reading the book and it’s certainly inspiring. The key happening in the story tells the tale of a commoner astronaut having to survive on a derelict spaceship.
