So I have the base game of the 3rd printing and I am wanting to buy the expansion but cant find it outside of $70

is there any word on a reprint or anything?

What all does this add? and how well does it work for solo games?

According to GMT they do plan to keep it in print.
How long it will take them to do the reprint is another matter.
Considering that the price from GMT is 60$, 70$ including shipping for an essentially sold out expansion is not so bad.
There have been america-based copies in the Geek Market for 40-50$ during the last weeks.

Here's a list of what's found in CE, but truthfully you should look up the rules to see the full awesomeness of what's in the expansion. The rules are presented in a modular fashion, so you can pick and choose if you don't want the whole enchilada. Solo is as easy as the base game.

Ship Experience/Military Academy Technology
Boarding and capturing ships
Security forces
Titan Class (now largest ship class)
Fleet markers
Exploration 2 Technology
Fast battlecruisers
Alien technology
Empire advantage
Transports, ground troops (militia, infantry, heavy infantry, space marines, grav armor), and ground combat
Captured colonies
Flagships
Research and Industrial centers
Nebula mining
Unique ships

CE makes an already awesome game twice as awesome!

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

On the solo front it also adds:

- A larger Alien Empire scenario
- A Space Amoeba scenario
- Co-Op scenarios that can be played co-op or solo

Do NOT expect a reprint for AT LEAST a year. It is not even on P500 yet.

I said screw it and got it from Amazon for $70.

I cant figure out how to play solo, where in the rules does it talk about solo rules.

There's no rules in the rulebook for solo play. The same rules are used for multiplayer and solo. Check the scenario book for solo scenarios. They give you the details about playing solo.
