Trying to find time to play...
You can build as many small ships, as your capacity allows (you can even build one ship with the activation action of your start tile). You do need the shipyard or a wharf planet to build the big ships only.Really?
This is what this rule means?
Can be activated to call a frigate from home.
This frigate can be placed on each own fi eld in the system, also on the starting fi eld.
But the ship cannot be moved the turn it comes into play."
