Hi,

I tried to find the answer for my question, but couldn't, so I will ask:
one of my friends think, that one should be allowed to buy a Racial Technology with the Alien Technology AC.

I think that one cannot, because Alien Technology says: pay 4 Trade Goods and take one technology.

Buying Racial Tech consist of only paying the cost of a technology (depends on Strategic Ability) and not taking one, then adding the cost of a Racial Tech.

What is the answer?

Thanks for the replies!
Best Regards,
Kamil Wilczek

Whenever you are entitled to purchase a Technology, you may purchase your race-specific Technology instead. The cost of a Race-Specific Technology is whatever you would pay for a regular Technology at the time plus the cost on the race-specific Technology card.


That's what's written in the manual. So it looks like you could, but would still need to pay the normal extra amount.

I agree with Martin - you can pay 4 resources, adding the cost of the Racial technology, to acquire the Race Specific Technology using this card.
