You are starting with one planet and a number of colony ships, usually two ships which you can immediately use. The number of ships available at the beginning of a galaxy is the same for all players and depends on the galaxy's settings when it is being set up.

-First of all you need to check the planets in your starting solar-system, if there are two or more fertile ones, **settle those first**. In the beginning planets with a food base production between 30 and 40 are especially desirable, as they will grow population quicker.+First of all you need to check the planets in your starting solar-system, if there are two or more fertile ones, **settle those first**. In the beginning planets with a food base production greater than 30 are especially desirable, as they will grow population quicker.
If the planets in your system are less productive, it is a perfectly good idea to send at least one of your colony ships to the nearest neighbouring solar-system. To do so, select one of your ships in the **Galaxy-Map**, and hover the mouse over a neighbouring star. This will popup a tooltip, which will display the distance and the number of turns it will take for this ship to arrive at the target.
