The Dispersal Project,[1] later known as the Great Expansion,[2] was the effort by the Ministry of Colonization to spread the human species throughout the universe so it would no longer be bound to a single planet.[1]

Overview Edit

Ender in Exile Edit

After the War of Xenocide, the planets previously inhabited by the Formics were slowly being settled by the surviving human soldiers. After the Ministry of Colonization was established, they began a process of sending human colony transports to those planets. The first ship sent out, IFcoltrans1, carried Ender Wiggin and his sister Valentine. The ship headed to Shakespeare, where Ender was designated to be governor.[1]

This expansion from the Solar System continued for many years, with planets like Pacifica, Ganges, and Divine Wind being settled.[2] However, some planets refused to receive colonists from Earth, like Colony IX, instead opting to remain entirely independent of their homeworld.[1]

The Minister of Colonization, Hyrum Graff, saw the Dispersal Project as successful by around 40 AX.[1]

Outcome Edit

Xenocide Edit

By around the year 3000 AX, hundreds of planets had been colonized by humans. The time period of settlement became known as the Great Expansion.[2]
