To use existing chains as an example...
Consular Authority: Karemma
Completing Step 2 (Secure Consulate on Karemma) opens up as one of it's additional missions Step one of the Karemma Colonial Team (Initiate Contact with Karemma Colonization Team). Both chains are still their own chain (UI doesn't change I wouldn't think) you just can't start the Colonial Team Chain until you Secure the consulate. The Colonization Team Chain isn't technically part of the Consular Authority Chain, just a pre-req for it. You would just set the same type tag on the start of the Karemma Colonial Team Chain that you would on say the repeatable for picking up the Strange Artifacts.
Now, obviously I don't know all the coding involved, just wanted to clarify my original suggestion.
