I could see our first mission there meeting later missions that beat them there with faster ships developed after they left.
Haha, that would kind of suck. But still better to arrive late on your sleeper ship than not at all because the FTL ships were not developed within your non stasis lifetime.
That happened in a sci-fi book I read just about. The main antagonist goes into cold sleep, arrives at the alien world only to find out that a human vessel launched a few months ago was right behind them.
