Mine came with three different colored reactors but no rules. How are these supposed to work?

The racial ability of the Wiss is that their Main Reactor is different than normal Main Reactors. So, instead of using a normal one, you use the one that was provided (in the colour of your choice).

This seems like a REALLY lame race.

You get 3 extra energy cubes, and unlimited range, but you can never get more???

Unless you get the location that lets you add an energy (and there is no guarantee it is even in the game), this seems like it will hurt you more than help you. You are limited to 5 cubes AND you don't get points for empty reactors.

Am I missing something here??

If you use only the base set, you can start the game by making a "hole" for the future Holographic Display Areas that use energy, focus your game on the Recreational and Business cards that do not need so much energy and always build easily the Fighter Launch Bay, without having to worry about the distance and the new power reactors.

If you play with the expansion, then the strategies are too many, Experimental weapon the most obvious since you can pass it to other players and never fear that it will come back to you.

You just have to be more careful with your energy spending.

Play the game. Enjoy the game!

Cheers!
