Padma is another garden world, and the most populous of any colony. Its initial colony ships only carried a few tens of thousands of adults, but stored over 2.5 million frozen embryos which were brought to term on the planet in artificial wombs. The children were raised and educated with the help of a fleet of robotic caretakers. Padma has developed a reputation for its excellent scientific research and education facilities.
