Each player can Colonize new Planets, using Colonyship / Colonybot / Settler sent on a Colonizing flight to coordinates in the Universe where there is no Planet.
All researched Sciences and developed Upgrades are shared with the colonized Planet. Bonuses from Sciences apply even if the new Planet doesn't have a Laboratory / Experimental facility / Overmind.
Whether a player can colonize a Planet depends on the player's Total points and the number of Planets they already have. The limit increases according to Total Points as follows:
|Planet||Required amount of Total Points|
