FTL Travel: ?? (Wormhole, Point-to-Point FTL, Lightspeed drive, Wave
N-Space Travel: Vector
Colonisation method: ?? (Cryosleep, generation ships, prison transport,
wealthy businessmen, greedy corporations)
Galactic Economy: ?? (by this I mean what is the most valuable resource?
Water? Oxygen? Unobtainium?)
What is the imperative for expansion: ?? (population pressure, lack of
resources, interspecies war)
What level of automation will starships have: ?? (FB standard 1 man per
mass, 5,000 men to man a destroyer, etc).
