    We're moving along at a good clip, but maybe we should hold up a bit for a game status update before @Brody takes his action?

    I still don't plan to attack you neither this turn nor the next one, But It's kind of the only way I could go... Also you just have the only 5 resurces planet in the galaxy...

    Play Imperial Secondary. I'll have to discard a card after I've drawn one.
