Why would you want to surrender in a Planetary Invasion? It looks like you give up any research nodes and therefore have to forfeit research projects anyway. Unless you are planning to retake the system very soon and want the nodes intact, I can't see the advantage in surrendering.

Yeah, that's the reason. I've never done it though, lol

it can also be used as a diplomatic bargaining tool, a way to trade systems maybe, or forfit a planet that you havent built up in exchange for a trade agreement, that sort of thing.

I'm reminded of a thread from a while ago describing a situation where some planets were being exchanged back and forth, and culture nodes were often destroyed. It turned out that the players ran out of culture production to rebuild the nodes efficiently and the game dragged on. I wonder if a surrender to protect a node might have been an alternative play in that situation... it would of course still depend on a player's (perceived) ability to retake the system, but I wonder if some buildings are too important to be destroyed in certain situations.

I never thought Corey Hart was a Klingon, er, at Heart shake



I think if a Klingon is caught in a bad fight he has to fight, this song must be sung at the table.

"You've not experienced Corey Heart until you have heard him in the original Klingon."
