Is the only way to assign a colony supervisor to 'target' the federal transport to the colony you want the supervisor when it arrives? In MoO2, you would assign the supervisor and they would spend time en route before getting started, but the tutorial and manual don't have a lot of info.

There are some videos on youtube....maybe I need to watch one of those?
I'm wondering about this to.
And does a supervisor cover ALL colonies in the area or just one specific one. I can't figure it out.
You assign the supervisor colonies by either accepting their request when you create a new one or going into colony information and clicking the change supervisor button (Control is your friend)
