I go with the same opinion about faction background stories as mentioned before. They sound quite reasonable to me.
The one thing i can’t cope with is, how they could have discovered a global killer that early.
IIRC it’s quite difficult to spot them nowadays.
Some are just discoverd after they flown by
But i also found a hypothetical long time forecast
And about the naming, i would prefer more realistic names, with connection to the faction lore, instead of generic ones.
I think Gaia or New Eden would fit for an agricultural faction, not very creative, but they don’t get old, don’t they?
And somehow i like “Pilgrim”.
Are all celestial bodys already prenamed or will players be able to name them, like, the first one who will colonize them or by acquiring naming rights?
