This would be right after three stellar nations signed a treaty, while conventions and committees are still hammering out the beginnings of actual institutions and agencies to serve a burgeoning group who are more of a movement than a nation. While the writers write, there's urgent work to be done among collapsing systems and suffering populations. Ships must go out from Twin Cities Sector (why is it called Twin Cities? Ah.) to render assistance and make the Neutrality of the Concord a concrete reality, as opposed to returning those systems to Solar, Nariac or Austrin control. None of whom have ratified the deal.


In 2500, a stellar nation might deploy a dozen or more great fortress ships.

In 2472, the average is closer to two.

The Orlamu have just "donated" the remains of an obsolete colonial support station. As is, where is. Come and collect it guys.

I don't know if it's an exact parallel (though it would be much more likely the Concord Dawn mission would arise from military organisation and experience than projects two decades later) but might start some ideas:

Seabee Civic Action Teams
Seabee Barge Carrier

Some of the ways they could help include digging wells and other useful sorts of holes (mass reaction demolition charges should extend their capabilities a bit), towing hulks and asteroids into colonies' orbits, and bringing in prefabricated structures for both orbital and surface uses.
