Page 12, under bombardment part 2, Move Dreadnought Fleet:

Any units and influence tokens in sectors that the dreadnought fleet moves into are destroyed unless the space is shielded (see "Space Descriptions" on page 8).


Checking the description of shielded on page 8:


Units in shielded spaces are not destroyed when they are bombarded.



No mention of influence there. Is this an oversight? I am assuming that neither units nor influence is destroyed when a shielded space is bombarded, as on page 12.

The Golden Camel UberBadge is a mystery. Nobody knows where it came from or how it got there.

I'm not an official answer, but this is the way it is in Dune and everything else I've seen in the game implies this answer as well. Although, I'm not sure if this is the case in Rex, in Dune, spice never appeared in shielded spaces.

There are influence symbols where Influence appears. None of them are shielded.

I suspected as much. I tried checking the board before posting, but wasn't sure what all the symbols were. So now I believe they are:
Red - Stronghold
Green - Shield
Blue - Influence
White - equivalent of Ornithopters
Yellow - Galactic Council, coexistence

Thank you for clarifying.

What the hell are Ornithpoters? The only thing I know about them is they are 0/0 Flying Artifact Creatures.

Actually it is a 0/2 creature.

An ornithopter is an aircraft that flies by flapping its wings. They are the aircraft used in Dune.

In Rex they were replaced with Spaceports.
