A Date on a Space Station?

By Jessica E. Subject
With my 1Night Stand stories, I try to make some aspect of the story unusual, something that has not been done before. I’ve had alien characters, set the story on another planet, and one even on a spaceship. With Unknown Futures, since none of the main characters are aliens, I decided to make the setting part of the story.
Unknown Futures is set on a space station. Though not like the space station Chris Hadfield was the Commander on not too long ago. This space station has hotel rooms, a portal to travel there from Earth, tubes to ride in between floors, and an amazing dance club.
Here are some television shows and movies that are set on a space station. Some of them may have the same features as the one in my story.

The 100
Babylon 5
Ender’s Game
Battlestar Galactica
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Star Wars (Death Star)
2001: A Space Odyssey
Fantastic Four
Galaxy High School

And here’s an excerpt with details about the space station in Unknown Futures:

V stopped, her arms dropping to her side. “We’re about to go in the tube. It’s a transportation system for getting around the station. I admit, it feels really weird, but it’s the fastest way to my place.” She smiled at a giant bug who seemed to have dropped from the sky. It waved a long, skinny limb before skittering off down the hall. “Since you’ve never traveled this way before, I’m going to hold your hands and we’ll go through together.”
V pressed a green button on the wall then linked their fingers. Jewel had no time to comprehend how the transport worked before they were sucked up into the air then shot through a narrow cylinder. She now knew what traveling through a shop vac would feel like. If she hadn’t been so worried about hitting someone else along the way and how she’d land, she could have enjoyed her proximity to V. No matter how much she tried to deny her feelings, she enjoyed her touch.
When they dropped out of the pipe, V reached out for her, but Jewel wasn’t ready for the impact. She crumpled to the ground, pulling the other woman down on top of her.
