Hello all! New to the game, enjoying it immensely, but im confused by Arborec flagships ability. I got that production happens before the movement, but - which of amount of production value can you use? Do you spend resources as usual?

After you activate this system, you may produce up to 5 units in this system.
You have to activate the system containing the flagship, and the production takes place before the movement step. For this ability to work, you must give up the chance to move or attack with your flagship for the round (unless you have an ability that can remove the activation token).
The ship does not have a normal PRODUCTION ability, so you cannot use it to produce units at the end of the tactical action like a space dock or Latari Warrior. Instead, the number of units you can produce is limited by the ability.
Whenever any effect lets you "produce", you must pay the normal production costs. When you "produce up to 5 units," that could be 4 fighters and a destroyer (for a total cost of 3 resources) or 2 war suns and 3 dreadnoughts (for a total cost of 39 resources).
