Eh, while Rama is one of the earlier examples of an O'Neill Cylinder (I don't when it was first thought of, just that Rendezvous with Rama was published 3 years before Gerard K. O'Neill proposed it), the concept has been used enough that "giant spinning cylinder in space" is hardly going to be enough to tip people off that it was inspired by Rama - That said, Rama was the first thing that I thought of when I saw that station.

...I think I might actually be more of a fan of Babylon 5, although that didn't really have the neat cylindrical profile, which is probably why Rama came to mind first.
Looking forward to it :)
Here's a preview of the setting for the opening scene of Episode 4: Time Flies (and Skips and Jumps). This is an approximately 24-km long cylinder ark-type spaceport.

For Arthur C. Clarke fans, you'll recognize its obvious Rama influence.

Scripting is currently underway, and I'm still looking at a Fall (northern-hemisphere) start. I'll have a few more previews in the meantime, though.

Or in time for spring, for those south of the equator!
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. :-p

Sorry, couldn't resist. Anyway, looking forward to the start of Episode 4, just in time for fall!
