I build SLOWLY. Because, if you try to do to much to quickly you will go red. In 20 years game time I will have between 10 and 15 colonies and enough support to grow and expand faster later on. Mentioned above, I do build a defensive base at every colony. Why because the pirates love undefended planets. I complete the base and move my 4 frigates to the next new world to start a colony. By the way, try to keep the language friendly.
