generation ship, or generation starship, is a hypothetical type of interstellar ark starship that travels at sub-light speed. Since such a ship might require hundreds to thousands of years to reach nearby stars, the original occupants of a generation ship would grow old and die, leaving their descendants to continue traveling.

The idea I have if what if an ancient Vlini generation starship was lost and never made it to the finial destination? Floating through space, lost for eons until a scavenging team found it in dead space.

After reading an article from Strange Horizons about generation ships.. I have started mapping out what someone might find onboard the ship.. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
