When I saw the scenarios in the expansion, I thought for a minute that they were alien powers, where each player got one and it did different things for players. I believe I got this wrong. But, it did get me thinking. Would it be possible to have players get different starting powers in the game, to give them different abilities? Maybe a simple way is to start players off with a unique tech.

Anyhow have ideas or clarification or want for clarification for me on this on how the expansion and regular game work?

The expansion scenarios already have each player start with a unique tech.

Does each player get different tech or do all the players get the same tech? I was under the impression that the scenarios were the same starting tech for all players, with the scenario varying what it is. Does each player get their own scenario?

Possible? Well almost anything is possible, but this is not something that we are planning on.

The scenarios are the closest that we will get to that.

Yes, every player gets a different scenario that changes which role cards, planet, and technology they get. This should lead to some big variety in game direction as players will be playing differently to take advantage of their starting position and its strengths.
