    Excellent. The upfront cost of our class F bonds is steep, but we find that the long-run returns are quite profitable. Now, if you'll just transmit your command and security codes, we'll get this annexation underway!

    Rules as written, you cannot have a Shock Troop unless you have a friendly Ground Force with it as well (to denote ownership), so your action as posted won't work. Please revise.

    You gassy ghosts have been quite masterful in convincing everyone that the biggest threat to the galaxy was anyone but yourselves. Alas.

    Activate PDS cannons! I sure hope our defensive guidance systems weren't built by the same guys who manned the guns on our last armada. Maybe we were lucky and got some Muaat contractors ...

    If the PDS fire destroys the destroyer does it no longer count as a space battle for purposes of the corrupt empire card?

    If so I'd like to add the additional destroyer from Mallice if you'd allow it.

    PDS Fire is a step separate from Space Battle, and if your destroyers are hit during that step, no Space Battle will be engaged for the purposes of Corrupt Empire.

    I'll add the second Destroyer to the activation.

    Round 8 - Battle at Arinam-Meer

    Jol-Nar PDS Fire 4#1d10-3 = {3, 1, -1, 4 < 6}, Graviton Laser System 4#1d10-3 = {-1, 4 < 6; 7, 6 >= 6}, 2 hits. Creuss removes 2 Destroyers.

    Combat resolves in favor of Jol-Nar; since Space Combat was not triggered, Creuss does not gain 1 VP. It is now Jol-Nar's turn to act.
