Re: What does a New colony need?

Solar energy can barely run modern technology, it certainly can't run a replicator. Presumably, a replicator's energy needs follow the E = MC^2 formula. So basically you'd need the energy yield of a nuke to so much as make breakfast.

I suppose perhaps there is a mode where you can de-materialize matter directly in the replicator and use that energy to replicate.
