1 - Nomads

First entry from my random space encounters list!

Space nomads travel the interstellar void on large, bulky ships, often being conglomerate of smaller vessels merged into one. Their communities are almost self-sufficient, with hydroponic plantations and livestock wandering onboard. Spare parts and resources are often excavated from forgotten or abandoned stations and mines or salvaged from wrecks. Nomad communities can vary - some are loose, almost democratic communes while other are family-based clans with very complicated laws and traditions.
