That's the only way to play -- you are the AI

Seedship sounds awfully porny.
I'm pretty sure you could fit this intro text right on screen without me clicking continue for every sentence.

First planet doesn't have an athmosphere and is cold and barren like my heart.

Second one has athmosphere, but still cold and barren.

Holy shit.
RADIATION! TEH SPACE KNOWS! SHUT IT DOWN!

Systems online, no damage, all is well.

Whops, injured a few passagers... I mean over 200.

"This star is one of dozens orbiting a massive black hole that looms in the distance like a malevolent eye. "
Sauron?

Finally found almost suitable planet. Not too shabby, also with ruins of high alien tech and proofs of cavemen. We aren't the first ones on this planet and that's a good thing. If it was good for aliens, it'll be good for us.

Default name is Garden. I'll stick with it.

Colony established successfully.

Found the natives. They didn't like us. But we have slaves now.

And opressive theocracy because someone thought science was more important than history when choosing which to sacrifice because of some space radiation.

Quote:
Planet Garden
Atmosphere: Breathable
Features: Plant life, Animal life
Neolithic civilisation
High-tech ruins
Gravity: Moderate
Temperature: Hot
Water: Oceans
Resources: Poor

Garden's alien forests stretch away beneath a blue sky. The colonists live in smog-filled Industrial cities with buildings sealed against the planet's harsh environment, beside rivers that flow into the planet's oceans. The cities are dominated by temples to the state religion which controls every aspect of people's lives. Much of the labour in human communities is performed by a downtrodden alien slave caste that is all that remains of the planet's native civilisation. In the first city stand monuments to the 122 colonists who did not survive the journey and the seedship AI that guided humanity to its new home.

I've never encountered "natives enslaved". I wonder what triggered that?

I'd guess destruction of the cultural database probably helped.

I've done that a hundred times. It only led to enslavement of the humans :-)

OK, gotta give it a try.

...boy, sure a lot of variety in what people consider a garden:
Planet Garden
Atmosphere: Breathable Features:
Barren moon
Edible plants
Monumental ruins
Gravity: High
Temperature: Moderate
Water: Oceans
Resources: Poor

Garden's squat, thick-limbed alien plants stretch away beneath a blue sky. The colonists live in squat stone-walled cities beneath the planet's open sky, beside rivers that flow into the planet's oceans. They live lives of peace and spiritual fulfilment beyond the dreams of their ancestors on Earth, guided by a combination of human and alien philosophy. In the first city stand monuments to the 8 colonists who died building the first settlement and the seedship AI that guided humanity to its new home.

not bad, not bad.

although after reading all these descriptions, i must confess i want to find a planet where the plants just sort of huddle up, and the oceans flow into the rivers....

Snowball's tall alien plants reach hundreds of metres into a blue sky. The colonists live in tall stone-walled cities under airtight domes, on top of the planet-wide ice sheet. The cities are dominated by temples to the state religion which controls every aspect of people's lives. The colonists' culture mostly ignores the native inhabitants, who live in their own communities in other parts of the planet. In the first city stand monuments to the 363 colonists who died building the first settlement and the seedship AI that guided humanity to its new home.

Bounty's squat, thick-limbed alien plants stretch away beneath a pale blue sky. The colonists live in squat high-tech cities with buildings sealed against the planet's harsh environment, beside rivers that flow into the planet's oceans. They live lives of peace and spiritual fulfilment beyond the dreams of their ancestors on Earth, guided by a combination of human and alien philosophy. Many of the planet's native inhabitants live in the human communities, and the colonists' culture has been enriched by alien influences. In the first city stand monuments to the 353 colonists who died building the first settlement and the seedship AI that guided humanity to its new home.
