The show, particularly the first season, borrows imagery and story heavily from the Dead Space video games. Including ships, the virus amongst other things. Both equally being great on their own as well.
The LDSS Nauvoo (Latter Day Saints Ship) has a rotational axis parallel to the direction of the thrust. In Season 2 we can see that the thrust certainly is a strong force, probably 1G. At that thrust, everything inside the ship would feel as if the forward end of the ship (bow) is 'up', the backside (stern) as 'down'. All the landscape, soil, trees etc. that the Mormons would need to plant inside the ship would need to be planted after the ship goes into its 'coast' phase, so they can spin the cylinder to make gravity. The ship would not have enough fuel to be under thrust for the whole trip, using a maximum of 50% of its fuel to accelerate, as it needs the other 50% to decelerate at the end of their trip (that's ignoring any maneuvering reserve) That is why it is a generation ship - its almost 12 light years to Tau Ceti, their destination. Even if they can achieve 10% the speed of light, that is 120 years, and is ignoring the acceleration/deceleration sequence. There is one way to handle the issue, is have all the 'landscape/growing areas on pivots, so the deck can re-orient itself to whatever way is 'down'. But as we are never shown these areas, their 'solution' to the issue is moot.
