Missing a whole lot of other reasons.


Cultural/religious escape into a New World to get away from oppression and do their thing.


Missionary impulse to 'save' the aliens or wayward humans and incidentally profit by them (conquistador).




Genetic research wonderland is definitely in the cards (and biotech should be rampant and ubiquitous in that sort of setting), but also think of unique and cheaper processes that can be done in different atmos (completely different economics in chemical engineering not to mention different rocks and therefore ores).


Moving out to outbreed the mother culture and come back and retake the home planet.


Provide gating to other races and civilizations so you get trade and interaction advantages.


Keep spreading humanity out so no one disaster kills us all.
