Stop touching me!
The Planetary Bombardment card says:
When Invading a System, you may First Strike. If you do, all your First Strike Hits automatically destroy Nodes, regardless of how many Hits you score.
When using this card, if I roll more first strike hits than there are nodes on the planet (normally a 'successful invasion' outcome), what happens? Due to the card effect, the existing control node has been destroyed and the planet has been wiped bare. Do I still get to place my control node on the planet?
Because of a GF9 ruling of a similar upcoming Cardassian card in another thread, I'm assuming the official answer to my question in this thread will be: "No, you do not get to place your control node, even though you rolled more hits."
I just want to make sure I'm interpreting this correctly.
