Concept: The inhabitants of this planet had no idea what the incredibly ancient structure around their world was for ... that is until the long dormant colossus was awaked and it's true nature was revealed: the greatest transportation device of all, it transformed what was once a backwater world into a planet-sized starship capable of traversing the entire galaxy within days, and allowed the creation of an empire.

The beings on the world of Saarhai developed in the shadow of an unimaginably colossal hulk. It had always been there, just seven lightyears away. In ancient times, people thought the structures were the bodies of their gods. After developing the technology for space travel, the first thing the people of Saarhai did was man an expedition to the ruins, hoping to learn the secrets of whatever ancient race had constructed the enormous vessel.

I believe this is what I'm going to go with. It needs more, though. Maybe make this the view from the surface of a moon, so I can include some characters or something more dynamic.

Oh man...So many cool ideas on this site. That one is one of my favs. The idea of a planet being used as a ship is pretty unique. Nice work.
