OOC: I send all of you, except razovor and Cínor due to full PM boxes, some new information I received. If those two would please make some space available?
Decreasing our dependency on earth is definitely in our interest, but while we do this and afterwards we should not burn the bridges behind us. Among the currently remaining powers, only three directly moved against us. True we have to watch our backs in any alliance with earth powers, but this does not mean such alliances canít benefit us. Besides for the next few generations, most of the human race will still live on earth, making it the largest pool for recruiting talented people and selling our products and services.
If we manage to control interplanetary colonisation, either directly or, what we prefer, indirectly this means we control humanities future. Access to space is not that big a concern for this, but dominating interplanetary transportation is. For the longest time TRHI was able to do this, by virtue of being the only faction concerning themselves with this but the UK-Soviet axis was able to break this hold in on case with their Mars Cycler.
Regarding communication services and the control over them, Would it be possible to turn Hypereux new services in a cooperation between us? With reasonable investments from most of our members we should be able to easily outcompete any competition. This would allow us to conveniently blanket the lower orbitals with our equipment.
