    Done. You are now Governor of Moria, the main mining colony of the Empire. Your traits are:

    Admin level 6, Wealth creation bonus 15%, Mining bonus 30%, Population growth bonus 10%, Ground unit construction 10%, Logistics bonus 10% (of those, only the Mining and Logistics will be used... there aren't any PEOPLE on Moria); Determined, Energetic, Organized.

    I wouldn't worry too much about that. I think the marines on El Dorado could handle pretty much anything right now. A balrog's hardly likely to even slow them down.

Naturally, this trick would only work in certain situations, so pre-battle recon by Blinks would be a must.
    Err, here I was thinking Deep Space Tracking Stations were 'BIG', ie you couldn't even fit one into 5 cargo holds. Hmn, just closed the game, but I think you should double check how many of those you can actually fit into one such 'freighter'..

    We now have 77 research labs on Earth, with another one building and several more en-route to Earth. By the time they arrive, our research capacity will have doubled over what it was when the first battle of Wolf 294 was fought... if the +20% research tech that we've learned since then is also included.

    According to the Wiki, five cargo holds per DSTS. Which is less than you thought, but more than I thought.

    Most of our PCs started with typical skills of around +10%... so it looks like you've gained 19 skill-points fighting robots.

    We just received a Missile Scientist! We didn't get one at game-start, and we've had to play the entire game so far... twenty-three years... without one!

    What are my stats by the way? I'm not still a listless, drug addicted officer on the Chandrasekhar am I?
    And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

    I'll be your Rocketeer.

    "Getting paid for reading is the best way to make a living."

    The best bit in that game is this PM from OY to his packmates:

    OrangeYoshi: ... I'll also put in a preliminary hunt order to Hunt Oky's replacement. (THE_SPLIT if I'm not mistaken). He publicly asked for a sub, and that is slightly more common in Lite if you have some sort of important role.

    This is OY putting in a hunt order on Oky's replacement, who is none other than OY.

    No, you've been commanding an Attitude-II class Light Cruiser for the past 13 years, and you won a Battle Star decoration in the first battle of Wolf 294.

    Commodore von Sachsen, in command of Attitude-II class Light Cruiser ESN Defiant: Crew Training 150, Fleet Init 260, Survey +16%, Terraforming +10%, Listless, Substance Abuse.

    Oh, since everyone is bothering our Great Leader with such trivia, I suppose I'm still commanding a Light Cruiser (should be Sirius), but I never had any update on my stats, which probably should've slightly improved after a decade of a reckless life in deep faraway space
    I suspect I should have something like +5% survey by now, at least.

    ESN Sirius was your Star-II class Destroyer. You are commanding the Attitude-II class Light Cruiser ESN Belligerent. Crew Training 50, Fleet Init 253, Survey +3%, Logistics +10%, Poor Family, Uncaring.

    Our five-member TKFS Geology team now has a total skill of +331%, with two of the team members at +70% skill. They just found yet another lode of Minerals in the Procyon system (same system as Moria).

    on the subject of bothering the Emu:

    Also: did you deploy the geo team to El Dorado yet, or will that be after all the ruins are gone?

    CT 75, FI 256, Survey 15, Xeno 17, Logistics 10, Ops 20, Cold manner, Inconsiderate, Courageous, Many social interests. Your crew has reached 48% crew training and a +13% grade bonus (eg: +13% to-hit with your missiles).

    Yes, the Geo team has finished with El Dorado, with somewhat disappointing results. They found three new mineral deposits to add to the two already there... but ore concentrations were only 10% which is pretty marginal. Tonnages in the millions, though.

    So, the local aliens deserted the city because they were running short on minerals?
