May the Great Spirit Bless all who read this.
I'm a newbie at this game, only 4 so far but I'm gonna have some fun and see if I can answer these. Caveat. Don't rely on a word I write, wait for an experienced players answer.
-Say I leave a robonaut outpost on Mecury.
While my Rocket stack is headed back to LEO or some such, can that robonaut-outpost be producing WT that sits on the Mercury site hex for use later?
No. Not in the rules.
-Also, what happens to all of the above if I want another outpost say on the Moon? Since you can only have 1 outpost stack, must I decommission the Mercury outpost (putting the robonaut in hand and removing the disk) and lose the WT there?
Yes. Decommission the existing outpost.
-Lastly, if I jettison a component in orbit so I can "land light" on said outpost, does that component get outposted in space and the original outpost decommissioned?
Yes. Only one outpost allowed.
-If I jettison WT in space, can it be outposted and picked up later? Or
just picked up later by anyone, w/o outposting at all? (I assume just
leaving the WT disks on the space)
No. It's space soup after jettisoning.
