Tips for galactic domination:
1.Buy plenty of starships:
While an intricate, looping trade route between five systems looks
elegant, those ports won't be visited very often, and since trade makes
money, you want to trade as often as possible. Try for one ship for each
two-planet hop. Remember: volume, volume, volume.
2.Name your starships for the course they fly:
As the game progresses it's very difficult to remember which ships go
where and why. Naming ships things like Tellus-Uniks (food) will help you
3.Appeasement never lasts:
If the locals of a system have come to dislike you, don't just build a
mall or sports complex and think that will make them happy. Bread and
circuses won't work in the future either. Rather, build a factory and give
the people something to do.
