I didn't think people would start a mutiny "somewhere in between", I indeed
thought that some might not want to leave the destination system (assuming
they thought that they could survive there).
If that group gets to big, it will make it impossible for the other group to
go back to Earth. I could imagine that the groups would start a fight.

However, I'd expect that the people choosen to make the trip would be quite
rational and social. It is unlikely that they would start a fight. So either
most would stay or most would leave.
