Meeple are very fragile creatures and need taking care of. But are also prone to a number of possible fatalities. Falling victim to starvation, suffocation, implosion, explosion, decapitation, electrification and incineration. They can even get sucked out of an airlock or eaten by an alien.

So to combat are are wide ranges of things in the space stations. Ranging from furniture, bedding, seating to complex machinery There is also a life support system and power grids. How you build it out for your Meeple Station will means adjust to changes.
