obvious noob questions from a writer

A vaguely similar thing happens in my Starlark blog. The colonists on the Starlark come from the crowded slums of Tyr, in Martian Orbit (these people are themselves refugees from the failed Martian colony). When they arrive at Epsilon Indi they are regarded as inferior beings by the existing colonists, not even particularly useful as slaves to a society that has plenty of robots.

Your story is quite different, however, of course. We can give you advice on how to adapt a story into the scenario if you wish; there are plenty of options open for stories in a wide scenario such as this.
