Hopefully!

Permalink

Everybody is very curious what they are up to.

Permalink

He bets.

 

 

That means everyone'll probably be observing the spaceship's trajectory and notice when it apparently vanishes.

Permalink

Yep they notice was it supposed to do that.

Permalink

It was totally supposed to do that hopefully in six days it'll reappear with up-close pictures of the nearest star.

Permalink

Everybody is SO EXCITED.

Permalink

Yep!!!!! So many babies!!!! So many stars!!!!!!

 

- have to handle your reds without any massacres or you don't get starships.

Permalink

What. That's dumb. Sometimes massacres just happen, okay.

Permalink

Well, everyone had better hope massacres don't happen to them or they don't get starships.

Permalink

They can figure out the starships! Probably! Eventually!

Permalink

Or they could manage without massacres and get starships tomorrow!

 

(Anitam announces screening for the first colony ship. Colony will not have child credits at all.)

Permalink

What are the screening criteria???

Permalink

Smart, diligent, no criminal record, relevant skillsets, passes an interview. With an ex-red interviewer. With roots showing.

Permalink

What is on the interview?

Permalink

How they'd handle challenges anticipated with a colony planet, including potential contact with alien societies; how good they are at problem-solving and responsibly handling new situations; how likely they are to make trouble; skills tests where relevant.

Permalink

People fling themselves at the screening process. They do varyingly well.

Permalink

The ship comes back. 

 

More ships go out, scouting for new planets. The crews are grey and green.

 

They assemble a colony-worth of people for once they find a suitable colony site.

Permalink

Hordes of young people eager to have unlimited children hop on and fly away.

Miolee swells as countries offload reds into it.

Permalink

Once they find a second planet it's all Miolee's.

Permalink

Miolee is delighted!

Permalink

Everyone else is probably less so!

Permalink

Cene's sorta okay with it. They get the next one.

Permalink

They do! And then planets for everyone else who manages to not with the massacres.

Permalink

Mmmmmmost people manage to not. Some of them have... irregularities. Which they are incentivized to suppress news of.

Is Anitam sanctioning Rivik? What about Olvala? Evalee?

Permalink

He expects Miolee's tracking irregularities. Rivik had a change in leadership; Olvala and Evalee sure look like they're governed by the same people who started their respective massacre and irresponsible catastrophe-courting.
