Ah ha! You, my friend, are a genius!
I have been playing DW for a long time now, and loving it. But I have ranted on these forums that colonies are so unimportant as compared to the homeworld of all the empires. Your post hit me like a ton of bricks. Of course, jack the independent slider way up, and you create a "Star Trek" like galaxy, teaming with civilizations to have join or fight your empire. There will be a huge assortment of worlds at differing levels of development and population.
