If an alien race is drawn to a system without planets, it is ignored unless that race is at tech level 4 in which case it appears aboard a mothership as a migrating alien race.
In the third era players draw event cards rather than explore systems; 10 of these will introduce level 5 aliens as migrating species from Outer space intent on plundering the galaxy.
The scenario is that the Human species has developed the technology for space travel, but the Earth itself is now depleted of mineral resources. Hence, the giant Corporations who first developed mineral exploitation on the other planets of the Solar System have become the dominant forces in human politics, making or breaking the various dynasties of Solar Emperors, who have become no more than puppets idling away their lives in the imperial pleasure palace in Samarkand.
Each player takes on the role of a planetary corporation, with the system they have developed becoming their home or "capital" territory.
