Last Hope of Humanity... the UFP Exodus fleet
The Exodus is a Fleet/Military mission. All civilian personnel are in the Cryo-ships. The Civilian government of the UFP continues to direct and manage the fleet remotely, through Fleet Command.
While the President is involved with fleet preparations, she has declined to come with the fleet, to show her solidarity with those remaining behind. “Our new worlds will need new leadership, the old will have to pass away…” she recently said to on a holo interview.
