ESF Kepler V

The ESF’s first colony mission outside of the Earth System was the ESF Kepler V. It was sent to Demeter, housed twenty thousand civilians, and docked two military cruisers in case it became necessary to open fire on the colonists and suppress the potential madness of space travel.

It was also sent a year after a Vanguard Team of elite military scientists and engineers, so that the colony would be established before the arrival of large numbers of civilians.

The expedition went almost without incident, but the Vanguard Team reported that they needed more time to establish an operational colony, so future teams were given two years for initial establishment.
