During the early years of extrasolar exploration, the American government through its close relationship with the private space companies found itself at the leading edge of exploration and colonization. The system Epsilon Indi, is an example of this. Shortly after the colonization of Terra Secundus in the Alpha Centauri A system, American probes and colonial ships began filing into this system. A hospitable planet named New Washington became one of America's most regarded extrasolar possessions.
