Re: What does a New colony need?

Seeds? One invasive animal species (humans) isn't enough so you're going to bring along seeds to potentially overrun and decimate the existing flora and ecosystem? Why would you bring farming equipment rather than just replicating tools? You need initial shelter, starter power sources, a few replicators, and anything biological. You initially use the replicators to build more power sources and more replicators and go from there.

If you're going to bring seeds for known safe plant life, might as well bring samples of chickens, pigs, cattle, etc.

I'd point you to DS9 4:22 For the Cause, TNG 2:18 Up the Long Ladder, and Genesis 6:19.
