I have the base game and thought about getting this, but I'm a bit skeptical after looking at picture.

I gather it's not actually an expansion, but rather an option for the game, is that correct? So instead of playing with ALL cards, this would be played either with expansion cards OR base game cards?

Is it actually worth getting?

It's akin to a different map in a map-based game.

The extra layer of Activation abilities adds depth for those who want a little more out of the base game mechanisms

Hope this helps!

It's a whole set of new cards. And new abilities. It is played without the base game cards. The tech tree is harder to follow (since it's fictional), but I think it's a vastly superior game to the base set.

Thanks for your feedback! It certainly sounds interesting, so I will probably get it after all

Yes, this is my experience too. I like both (I have 23 plays with the original game, and 17 with the expansion) but since I received the expansion we've only played the original once, with people new to the game. The base game is a little simpler (real-life technologies plus one less option on your turn), but on the whole I feel the expansion is a refined and superior version of the same game.
