The basic idea was some thing I got from reading the original Novakid page by Bietol. Then I got to thinking that it would make sense that the Novakids wouldn't be as attached to planets as other races are, since they came from stars to begin with and don't really need air, and as such wouldn't really care about planet based villages. Instead like the quote said they would travel around the galaxy in something like a convoy of spaceships on a galactic Oregon Trail. So the idea was to have Novakid settlement be set in the currently empty asteroid fields and have it look something like a bunch of steam powered buildings/ships attached to the side of the rocks and connected by ramshackle platforms. The structures themselves could be a cross between something like a gold mine and brewery where they turn the rock into moonshine. Then a couple of them as taverns and general good stores. Altogether it might look something like a gold rush era mining town, only IN SPACE. Heck You could even name one Jaynestown.
