Re: What does a New colony need?

A means to build and repair facilities such as habitats, a sickbay, greenhouses as appropriate, and a way to produce power to run things like the replicator and other machinery. Am curious: would an industrial-sized replicator be enough to produce the materials needed to build such facilities in the shapes and sizes needed? Where would the raw materials for the replicator come from, assuming that not enough power exists to do the E=MC2 thing to turn energy into matter?
