    Secret objectives are out. The rest of the hands will be dealt after the galaxy is created, for various reasons including, but not limited to, general organization in the administration of the game :p

    As a related note on the Expansionist card it says

    I "control" a system if I have at least one (non-fighter) ship there AND I control every planet in the system.

    let me see if I can find the clarification on whether space docks count as units.

    And a new post for these:

    Race information summary
    Tech checklist and a more colorful [strike]tech tree[/strike]; someone check that and make sure it is only the base game
    General super-cheat sheet; may contain some expansion details, but it DOES include the full text of the strategy cards we are using

    That last sheet includes the following in its glossary:
    System you control: You control all planets in the system (if any) and have
    1 spaceship in the system.

    So you DO need a spaceship in a system to count as controlling it.

    edit: CC says the tech tree uses the expansion

    Hey guys! Thanks a bunch for all of this clarification, rules discussion, and links to good stuff.

    I am adding most of this stuff to the O3Ps, so keep an eye on those. You guys are making my job way easier.

    Yeah they changed the FFgames forum around so all my old bookmarks don't work anymore.

    I can't remember the "a unit is a plastic piece thing" so unless someone can find that somewhere

    I control should be:

    System you control: You control all planets in the system (if any) and have
    1 spaceship in the system. (from darian's glossary)

    or

    I "control" a system if I have at least one (non-fighter) ship there AND I control every planet in the system.
    (from the Expanionist Secret objective card)

    p.s. I am not admitting to either having or not having the Expansionist Secret objective. I have all the secret objective cards in front of me right now.

    The actual Tech Tree you linked looks to include both TI and the Expansion techs. Not sure that's the one you want to look at (think the reqs. are different).

    I can't find Racial Technologies mentioned in the core rulebook, but it is in one of the links, is this from the expansion and thus to be ignored or am I blind?

    It's on the Race Cards... not sure if it's listed in the rulebook.

    It's also listed if you follow the general Race overview link that Darian provided.

    Racial Technologies are from the expansion. Each race gets 1 special tech. We will not be using those.
