4th Edition, 1st Printing
Comes with a new double sided board which supports both standard D6s and Alien Frontiers: Rocket Dice. Also includes the Alien Frontiers: Upgrade Pack plus dock covers for the Rocket Dice. The Fourth Edition also does away with baggies, it now uses various tuck boxes to store its components. Finally, the backing of the Alien Tech cards was slightly altered.
NOTE: The double sided board has a misprint on the standard D6 side, where the arrows showing which way the colonies are supposed to travel is missing. (This is fixed in the 4th Edition's 2nd Printing)
This misprint can be corrected with stickers found in Alien Frontiers: Expansion Pack #1
The 4th edition's box is a slightly different size than earlier editions and also has the Game Salute logo on it.
