This variant is based on the concept that the three alien factions are constantly intriguing to gain control by any means necessary.
If they can be the major source of backing for the winning party, they can exercise influence up to and including threat of withdrawal of support to manipulate that party.

At the end of the game, if the winner's political power in any 1 faction is higher than the total of the rest of his power combined, his dominance is so dependent upon their continued support that they end up actually running the scenes with him as a puppet.
The player may console himself that he is better off as a puppet king than as a conquered vassal.
The alien faction wins the game. The player with most VP does not lose. All other players lose.
