Any idea, why there is no RTG building miniature.

All the other buildings on the main board and the excavation site (stretch goal) have a miniature (if you got the buildings add-on), just not the RTG.

Is there a reason for this?

Bye

Maybe cause RTG is not a building but just a generator?

I have not tried that (yet), but you could place the sculpted first player token on the RTG. It's somewhat similar in shape and maybe it is large enough to cover the image.

Actually, I'd prefer to use the footprint token as first player token instead of the sculpted first player because the current event stack can be identified easily enough, so there's no actual need for it anyway.

when can one utilize the RTG building and how often? I haven't been able to find this in the rulebook.

We did not make the RTG miniature because it is neither an action field, nor a building where colonists would work. However we have a lot of requests about it, so chances are that we will make the miniature and it will be available for you to purchase either in our next KS action or via online store.

From my memory, each player may, once per round, take one energy token from it.

The RTG starts with NUMPLAYERS+2 energy and is never replenished. The iconography shows that one can take an energy from it with only a cost of one reputation.
