For those of you who enjoy this sort of thing, I modelled the new Webb building off of Sacramento's Ziggurat. (read more here)
It was built around the same time and timeframe and it was too interesting not to be a part of my timeline.

Cynthia had gotten caught in traffic, so by the time she walked in, they already had food on the table. She put her purse down over the back of the chair and sat.
“Didn’t think you liked...
You're right, and that's my error. But I'm leaving it in because I think Josh wouldn't be very good with the language. He mostly uses it to build a bit of camaraderie and he'd make the occasional mistake.

His hands hurt. That was the biggest thing. He’d been in this suit for coming up on seven hours now. The gloves were rubbing his knuckles raw. Even with the padding from this morning, it was a...
Well, this next story is a bit different and, while I don't usually do this, I feel like I should take a moment and give you a bit of an introduction for it.
I've had this concept rattling around for a while now. Long had it been a question as to when and if it should take place in the Ocean...
Let's not worry about people showing up late to the party, and just celebrate the fact that they're here now.
Everyone who knows Farscape is a win.
Though I am getting reminded of the folks who didn't realize that Lani Tupu was doing Crais and the voice of Pilot until the end of Season 1.

The smell of chlorine made his eyes sting. He didn’t know how Judy could stand it. If this was his office, he’d have worn a space suit. She sat behind a taupe industrial table with...
I tried to get a couple more shots of the layout (hopefully these come through a bit cleaner). I'll periodically update these as the base expands.
Note: The base is located at the base of Shackleton because the material of the ridge is close-to-hand for covering new modules with a thick layer...
I think I addressed the concept a while back with Shackleton (which had the same issue), but, as a general rule, whatever a place was named in our reality is what it is named in OOS, just to avoid confusion. I will not take "when it was named" into account there. There's just too much that...
That would be cool, honestly. It seemed likely that certain military traditions would be carried over just by the nature of this type of work and the people who perform it. I like the coordination of the lifestyles and their smaller factors. I've spoken a bit about the commonalities between...
Funny you should mention that. This is subject to change, but here's what I have so far.
The base is at the bottom of the rise that forms Shackleton Crater (on the Earth-facing side). The bottom of this map would be the lunar South Pole.
Also, this (if I have my numbers right, in terms of...

“Okay, everyone, let’s get settled,” Sharon said. The group’s collective attention came to her. She took a moment to see if everyone had a coffee cup or a water...
