Yes, a "double-blind random draw" - i had an random list of all visible 
IRTC topic suggestions, and dbott picked a number...

In a way, Space Settlements is a "Barnum" topic - "something for anyone" 
(like the way horoscopes usually "are right" ;). Wether you're good at 
creating procedural landscapes, or elaborate machinery - wrap it in a 
ring, or a sphere, or a cube, or a pipe - and presto: instant space 
settlement :)

Oh my. Since this is animations, i'm afraid we may be swamped with 
pre-made Babylon 5 downloadable models ;)

Apart from that, it could be something on a planet (inflatable domes?) 
or the classic "ring-in-space" design, a random cluster of 
welded-together wrecks ("Titan A.E.", anyone? ;) ...

Topic also lends itself well to scenes with robots, i'd guess ;)
