Colchis is a pre-agricultural, pre-Industrial, moderate population world with over a hundred million, but not yet at a billion sophonts in population size.

  • It requires significant imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • Its economy and population are growing and living conditions are expected to slowly improve barring outside forces.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the New Islands Subsector of Reft Sector.
  • This world-system hosts a Military Base, usually associated with military ground forces, which may be located on or off-world.

History and background[edit]

New Home (Reft 1925) was the first to construct an interstellar spaceship Outward Bound, a scaled down version of the ESA colony ships. In 269 it launched an expedition to colonize Colchis. [2]

The Outward Bound arrived in 295 to start the colony. [3]
