Just checking to see if my understanding is correct.

The 'spanner' symbols on the Starbase, Orbitals and Monolith tech tiles. Is this symbol meant to imply that these techs 'consume' 1 of the two build actions? Or are they meant to mean something else?

I had originally thought that they added to the number of items you can build in a build action but given that this isn't mentioned anywhere, I think it's unlikely that such an important issue might have been left unclarified.

They indicate that by researching the given technology you gain the ability to build something new.

Page 12 under the Research Action explains the ship part, build and instant icon found on tech tiles.
