The Doomed Colony of Epsilon Eridani. Being so close to Earth (at 10.5 light years) and with an exoplanet, Epsilon Eridani c (EEc) within its habitable zone, it becomes the ideal testing grounds for the copy, transmit, and print colony technologies. Colony: Epsilon Eridani is a doomed colony but not for lack of support or technological failure. In its postmortem, the AIs determine its failure to be the direct result of allowing humans to volunteer (a rampant breeding ground for selection- and self-selection-bias) for colonies. According to AI calculations, EEc is a demonstration of humanity’s future doom in miniature. With this split second analysis, the AIs make Epsilon Eridani the poster child of why human volunteerism must end.
