Colonists? What are they for?
 
So I completed a DOFF mission but it said I could not actually complete because i had too many passengers. So I sold off 5 colonists so I could make room for the 5 from the DOFF mission. Then all was well.

I sold them on the exchange and they were snapped up pretty quickly. Why did someone buy them? What are they using them for?

Thanks.

They're used to establish colonies in the exploration zones. Most of these are chained missions.

You can get more info on the chained missions by clicking the bottom button on your assignments menu.

They are used for doff missions and can be donated to the fleet starbase for Fleet credits.

I appreciate the responses.

I have a chained done up to 7 steps (it's the one about the Catians). But I have never found the 8th step and don't know how to find it. It's been at least 2 months since I did the 7th.

How would I find it?

Thanks again.

I believe it's random as to when the mission pops up so you have tok eep checking back and get lucky.

colonist chains are only exploration clusters, and only a few are active at a time, and to get the whole set, you need to vist your enemy faction's home sector.

KDF side, you can also sell the colonist to the orions for latinum.

dont forget the assignment where you can exchange 5 colonists for 500 Dilithium Ore

Also in fleets all three holdings have multiple projects that accept colonists as input. For the starbase and embassy they are projects that take any "civilian" officer and for the mine they take any "common" officer.

Last, KDF side there is a common mission in Klingon territory to sell prisoners to orion slavers for latinum, and it accepts prisoners, refugees and colonists.

Boy is it fun to live in the Klingon Empire where some captain can sell you for a quick cash grab :rolleyes:
