As I was bagging my game earlier, I noticed that there are a few extra ship tokens in the counter sheets:

- 2 Yellow "Moth" ships (the 6 other ones are green)
- 2 Grey "Diplomat" ships
- 2 Pinkish "Centipede" ships (which are on bigger counters than the player ones).

Are these just extras because there was room on the punchboard, and they'll be useful later? Or am I missing something about how they are used "now"?

I noticed that as well.

The other thing is I have 12 starting planets and only 9 races? I have not played yet so maybe I just don't know how it all goes together yet.

I think there was a comment in another thread that mentioned he put those in there to accommodate future races (such as the Miner race that was shown elsewhere).

Ryan mentioned there are 3 more races that will be released as promos.

All the planets are the same ... so why 12 planets ?

Because they all look different. Flavor, man, flavor

You're right, it's for flavor.

The extra ships will be used in future alien promos.

Eh, promos are generally limited. If it were an expansion sure that'd be great, for a promo though that I might never get because I'm not in the right place at the right time, seems like a big tease to me.

There was mention these might be available on BGG store. If so, then they will be easy to get.

All further promos and add-ons will either be free print-n-play or available in the BGG store.
