This seems to be missing a cost for their Plantary Institute? Unless there is some special rule about them I haven't seen yet.

They start with their Planetary Institute instead of mines.

Also, I don't know what the translators were thinking giving these races such yawningly dull names. In German, they were Der Schwarm or "The Swarm/Hive". That's so much more appropriate. Ivits has no meaning whatsoever.

Der Schwarm even sounds cool in English.
Ivits sounds as dull as dish water.

Same for Mad Androids becoming Bescods.

Why anyone thought "Mad Androids", a name already in english, needed to be translated into generic letter soup boggles my mind.
Good thing I have the german version...
