hi,
i have a question about rebel alliance and rebel pact. Are those the only cards helping each other or does replicant robots for example, help too?
What i am trying to say: if i settle a rebel military world with the help of rebel alliance, is rebel pact the only card that can help me settle this card cheaper, or can i also use replicant robots?

Rebel pact helps when you pay for a military world.

Replicant robots includes this but also helps when you pay for a non-military worlds normally.

As you know, neither of these actually allows you to pay for a military world, you'll need Rebel Cantina, Rebel Alliance or Contact Specialist to do that.

To answer your question: Yes, you can use Replicant Robots

This made me notice a mildly ambiguous interaction in the iconography of Rebel Pact and Rebel Alliance.

Notice the Rebel Pact reminder text ("-2 cost when using a O > O power") shows the plain white military icon.

Now look at the Rebel Alliance settle phase power and/or reminder - it uses the rebel-only darker colored circle.

Obviously Rebel Pact works on Rebel Alliance settles, and the Rebel Pact white military just means any type of military conversion power. Same idea as how Contact Specialist can be used to settle Rebel worlds despite having the white military icon.
