Variant: The Galactic Center has no planets. The GC still has the GCDS, Discovery, and is still worth 4VP.

Rationale: In 2p, whoever takes the Galactic Center will win the majority of games. The player who takes the GC is likely the player who was more fortunate in early explorations. By removing the planets, the GC is no longer self-supporting, and possession is a drain on your empire.

Thoughts?

I can see the rationale for this.

Instead of planets, you might give 2 Discovery tiles.
