I understand that a replacement tile sheet was given to people who purchased first editions of this expansion to correct a errors on a couple of tiles and also included a new Rare Tech - Tractor Beam.

What I can't find anywhere is, if I purchase this expansion now (presumably on its second or greater print run) does the expansion include the tractor beam token still? Or is this going to end up as an item to search for on eBay like so many others?

I think it was a bonus for the printing error from the first edition. I got mine in a trade and it came taped to the outside of the box. How do I know if I need it? If not I would trade it for something

I was not aware of this. I feel lucky that my recent purchase of this was a first edition copy.

Check the prices of rare techs.

They still have them I think, so if you are really in need - ask them, maybe they will be able to sent from distribution center.

In fact, the only new element you will have is tractor beam (as long as you dont' have any misprinted tech tiles).

Sounds suspicious.

Oh wait, that was me!

As I said in mail, mine came inside the box. Purchased from Coolstuff, delivered in early Feb. 2013.

Can't speak for anyone else.

I'm just curious if all the newer printings are like this in case I just buy it new.

Guys - what does the Tractor Beam do?
I got it with my expansion copy in a 6 tile errata sheet (I think the other 5 tiles are literally just corrected tiles?), but nowhere does it say how to use the Tractor Beam?
Cheers for any help!

EDIT - to the OP, mine was a recent, brand new purchase from amazon UK and the sheet came inside the box.

I got mine from Amazon UK too. It also says what the Tractor beam does on the white piece of board you punch the tile from.
