Well, when I read over it, I thought there were more 2nd levels than 1st b/c
it was a trained elven force (2nd) along with the colonists (1st).  Also:
why should the armor be any different?  If they are, in fact, colonists why
would they have batter armor?

Good question...and who builds an unwalled military installation? (in
fantasy campaigns where walls matter that much)

I'd say it depends on the party members...but, without them, the humanoids
are gonna splatter the elves all over that asteroid.
