It seems safe to say this all started when the GC started selling lunar lots to the highest bidder. The people got what they were promised on earth, prosperity by all accounts boomed, but I don’t think anyone really knew what opening the heavens to private individuals would actually mean. The universe was so massive, how could a handful of interests find conflict in such a massive chasm?

Attached are the permits. All in all they’re pretty simple.

-Name of sponsor organization

-name of leader

-proposed settlement location

-proposed purpose in space

-proposed long term vision

-Information about initial fleet

Nothing too fancy, and maybe not even entirely honest, but at least it’s a starting point.
