Inspiration: Futuristic Spaceport
Like MANY gen-Xers, Star Wars and its two original sequels hold a special place in my heart. The images George Lucas put onscreen of exotic locales, spacecraft of all shapes and sizes, and myriad alien races served as a jumping off point for hours of childhood play. And frankly, probably every other creative endeavor I’ve ever had. Central to that initial introduction to the galaxy far, far away was the Mos Eisley spaceport. The wretched hive of scum and villainy introduced me to Han Solo and from there, I could imagine any number of places he and Chewbacca visited – places both as depressing and downtrodden as docking bay 94 or as sharp and shiny as the examples of futuristic spaceports I’ve visualized below.
Hopefully you’ll get an idea of someplace the heroes of your story can go by looking at these.
