It began to fall apart from the 17th century AT, and at this point 0.3c starships were available. Perhaps your colonists could leave around this time, and perhaps rather than launching from Sol they could launch from a Federation system that is a bit closer to the destination? E.g. start them off in a system 50ly from Sol in the direction of Rho Ophiuchi, a .3c launch in 1600at would arrive after 400 / .3c = 1200 years, pegging arrival date at 2,800at.

Faster ships tend to be sleeper ships, but you could also have it be a data ship with each individual uploaded. They could either stay in storage for the journey or live in a virch. With the latter option you could have the virch run slow to make the journey seem faster. The S2 could be an S1, or even a modosophont, who is present for the journey.
Hello Rynn,

Thank you for the additional information! That is a really good idea - although I think if I can I will make it a sleeper ship, so I do not have to write the history and political scuffles of the journey itself (In addition, I am not sure I would be comfortable with the data ship approach, for various reasons.). Would it make sense to have the S1 that would eventually become an S2 "recruit" individuals from that colony in 1600 AT? Also, how uncommon and how influential were S1 entities in 1600 AT? Similarly, how uncommon and how influential were S2 entities in 2800 AT? Also, how do members of OA write the actions of transapients if their goals and thoughts are by definition not understandable? And can modosophonts even tell the difference between different transapient intelligences?

Lastly, in the current era, are there S2 entities that find and expose whatever nonsense previous S2 entities pulled to the general public, or would random "edits to history" that an S2 did to an entire system in 3300 AT or similar still not be common knowledge? I am asking because an objective view of the system's history would probably be very different than the modosophont history of a system that has been run by a questionably stable S2 for thousands of years.

Sincerely,
Rho Ophiuchi
