Is it possible to settle face-up planets during a space flight turn which ends completing a mission or building a space station?
Or is it that once you've decided to settle planets is that the only way you can end your turn? (for example possibly settling multiple face-up planets as you fly by and ending on a face-down planet which you may choose to settle or get resources from?)
It works this way:
1. You choose where to fly. You can fly 0 spaces. Or the maximum you can afford.
2. The space you finish your flight determines what you can do.
3. After your flight you perform one of the three possible action you can do after a space flight.
4. If possible erect an outpost.
In either case can you settle a face-up planet that you took resources from in the last space-flight turn you took?
You can exploit a planet in one turn and after exploiting yur flight is over. You stay there. Next turn you can start colonizing the planet. You don't have to fly. You can stay put and colonize the planet...

No, the planet is blocked until the other player leaves.
Anytime. Hope you do not feel too frustrated on our next play... ;-)
