Spaceship design for SF stories

Star Destroyer and Borg Cube, generation ship and space fighter: For the journey between the stars, the protagonists need suitable vehicles. What do you have to think about when you act as an engineer with a pen in your hand? Propulsion and armour, habitat and cold sleep chamber, plasma launcher and laboratory, hyper radio and agricultural module – what does the spaceship need? Is it to hold one person or a thousand? Have supernova drives been invented? How complex are they, what space do they take up, what kind of fuel do they need? And above all: what design decisions make sense for what kind of story?

In the writing workshop: The Star Shipyard presents Robert Corvus different concepts. Under his guidance, the participants develop in small groups the machines that take their characters to the stars in various scenarios – and in doing so, leave their readers amazed.

All that is needed to take part is a good mood and a pen, registration is not necessary.

Titles like Feuer der Leere and Das Imago-Projekt preceded it. He was active in BattleTech and occasionally writes for the biggest science fiction series in the world: Perry Rhodan. Together with Bernhard Hennen, Robert adapts one of the basic adventure campaigns of the role play The Dark Eye, Die Phileasson-Saga, as a twelve-part novel series.

Robert Corvus has been a full-time writer since 2013. Before that, writing was a hobby and a sideline for 25 years.

Robert was a soldier, management consultant and project manager in international corporations. He travelled around the world with his backpack, made a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela and taught karate. After stations in Münster and Sindelfingen he now lives in Cologne.
