Seeding the Stars

Fourth Generation Seed Fleets

By this point in time a Seed fleet consisted of over a hundred large ships sent in a number of waves, the first consisted of automated factories that would arrive first. The factory fleet would set about building orbital infrastructure, deconstructing asteroids and smaller orbital bodies, large scale laser network construction and the development of O’Neil cylinders.

The second wave was made up of seasoned colonists, people who had helped in the organic settlement of the solar systems worlds and environs. For all practical pueposes their ships were O’Neil cylinders that had engines to propel them through the depths of space. Generally there were four such ships with a total population of about two million people.

The final wave was more of a column of settlers looking for a home away from the Sun that had been the species home for so long, among them were AI and other virtual life.
