The Wolfenheim Project was never simply about building a new colony.  Oh, the colony was important.  But Charles has never been one to play one game at a time.  You see the Hurst family was rich, powerful, and very set in its ways.  Charles wished to change that.  When Wolfenheim launched from New Earth, many alliances within the family were revealed to my very prying eyes.  We put that information to very good use.
