But unless there's something really, really special to be found on those little ice balls, I find it hard to believe that people would want to colonize such amazingly remote and dark places.

Given the drive field, yes. Because you can get to nicer places. Without that? Um.

But as this is Starfire, well :D

There is precedent in classic Sci Fi to at least utilize such remote objects. Joe Haldeman's The Forever War is a good example. In fact Haldeman predicted the existence of Kuiper belt objects about 20 years before the first was officially discovered.

Alexei Timoshenko is the name of my protagonist in the fanfics, although I wish it could have been me.
