Choose secret actions at the summit each round, earning resources and bonuses for outmaneuvering your opponents. Then, spend those resources on powerful technologies that grant you new abilities and expand your scale. Engage in conflict, trade or research as a means to cultivate your civilization, capture the energy of your home star, and ultimately the energy of the entire galaxy!
