Hi Guys,
Suppose you have the following situation:

A TL 12 Mother World.
A colony transport of 1,000 people
A concentrated colonization effort with fleet support

What would the tech level would that world be considered to be?

If the homeworld retains its colony as part of the political process, would the colony world be treated as TL 12 as well despite the fact that it is severely limited in what kinds of TL 12 goods it has available? Would it be considered to be TL 11 if the bulk of cheap goods were sent to the colony because that is all it can afford?

Just speculating...

You know, that adds another question overall. If a world is not permitted to have colonies or other worlds as part of a coalition while it is a member of the Imperium - what world in its right mind would even want to create colonies? Or is it that the Imperium states that no world may retain its colony indefinitely - and that colony worlds until recognized by the Imperium, are the domain of their parent worlds? Hmmmm...
