I had a bizarre dream last night that would probably be worth a post on the drabblecast forums in itself. In the dream, part of it involved telling people a sci-fi story that felt like an actual, real story I heard somewhere.
The gist of it was a colony ship arrives at a star with a hollow planet, they're stuck there, presumably due to a lack of fuel. So they make the best of what they've got. setting up the colony is wrought with strife, the colonists must battle the hostile environment of the planet, they fight with each other over resources, they eventually fight of an alien invasion, and once they're through all their trials and have set up an impressive civilization in their new home, they discover the sun is about to collapse into a black hole and destroy everything they've built. They now have the resources to build a new ship to escape, but there isn't enough time, and they're eventually wiped out.
Has anyone heard of anything remotely similar to this or did I dream it up within another dream, Inception style?
