As a side note: when playing with this end condition, are you supposed to place the free satellites in the best/worst place for future satellites? For example, placing a satellite that is adjacent to 3 planet clusters will generally reduce the number of satellites the automa gets, while placing them adjacent only to the new mine's cluster will generally increase the satellite count.
You place the satellite if the new mine is not adjacent to any other Automa's planet, no matter if there's another structure connected through an existing satellite.
In general, satellites are placed for the automa just for reference, I wouldn't give them any meaning except for end game scoring purposes. You might as well place them on the planet itself.
