Check Objectives continued
Steve reviews his Secret Objectives to see if he has accomplished any.
If he puts more ships in Mecatol Rex and adds more planets he will score some of these points.
Here are the Public Objective cards that are in the Common Player Area.
Steve checks if he qualifies for any of these Public Objectives. He does not qualify for any of these either. However, the objective that reads "I have controlled Mecatol Rex the entire Strategy Phase and Action Phase of this round." will be true next round, provided Steve hangs on to it, because he just took control of that planet this round.
Continue the Status Phase.
