I have played once (2-player). My opponent and I could only come up with two ways to eliminate a player:
Do something to cause an overpopulation in the player's system, and then initiate a catastrophe; or
Get a ship into the player's system and use red action(s) to take control of the player's ships in that home system.

Is there a third way of eliminating a player?

I think that's it.

Note that there are two ways to take them out with a catastrophe--one is to eliminate their ships; the other is to eliminate the star itself.

(For 2-player, did you try the "binary homeworlds" rules? It's only slightly different--you ignore the good/evil business, and there are only 3 pieces of each color/size instead of 5: http://wunderland.com/WTS/Andy/Games/ILoveHomeworlds.html#Bi...)

Yes, we played binary. Our game was really long as it was -- both of us figuring out how everything worked, and how to win -- no need to use more pieces.

Thanks for the info.
