In stark contrast to the planet which it orbits, society on Crescent is actually far more dependent on Queens than on the Voran homeworld. Though a few domes exist, almost all Vorans on Crescent spend their entire lives inside Queens. This is possible thanks to a constant flow of near mature females from Serenity (those who have decided to grow into Queens, usually for the benefits of longevity that metamorphosis provides), the chemically rich dirt on the moon, and advances in medical and food technology allowing sustainable nutrition grown in an atmosphere that normally would not support life. Civilization on Crescent consists mostly of a series of Queens connected by pressurized tubes, with domes for gathering at the intersection of many of these tubes..
Although the distance of the sun tempers the strength of the storms somewhat, Crescent does not have a protective atmosphere like Serenity, and the environment is affected by them.
