Adaptive Reuse of Crashed Starships: Afterville

afterville-1

I once wrote briefly about how I’d love to see a movie that shows us what happens immediately after the people of Earth successfully thwart an alien invasion. Independence Day 2, if you will. Does the world come together in a new age of peace or do we battle for the rights of the crashed starships? And what of these starships? Their massive scale would intimidate even the most hardened shipbreaker, but we can’t just leave them where they crashed can we? Maybe. Maybe we salvage what technology we can and use the wreckage as an armature for a a new building a even an entirely new city. Post-invasion becomes the new Postmodernism.
