I'm not entirely sure what the purpose is of the Away Team and Beam Down marker tokens?
1. Does the away team token prevent another player visiting that site/planet, for that turn. My understanding is you remove it if successful (leave your faction token) and remove it too if you fail? So why put it down?
There's not much reason. I think they just included it so that it looked good thematically more than anything.
2. I can sort of understand marking the away team members, but it seems a bit fussy, especially when there's no way to track other things: like rounds, for example.
Yeah, we normally didn't bother with that either. We just remembered who we were sending.
