I have read "Downbelow Station" by C. J. Cherryh, and others in the series. Has anyone thought (or tried) having the Warden as a station that has lost contact from the far distant home world? Would that change the possibilities for playing MA in a good or bad way? =
Never read "Downbelow Station" and maybe have never heard of it. Can you give me a quick book review?

I'm not familiar with the story either, but even a large habitat station over a gas giant would be pretty neat as well, and help explain just where some of that fuel/energy to power the place is coming from. Furthermore, I recall an issue of Dragon Magazine, I believe, had a "beanstalk" station as setting for Gamma World. And that was something akin to a proper station at the end of a space elevator or so.
