Steve needs to do what he can to add planets and defend Mecatol Rex. He activates the Tequ'Ran/Torkan system.
The Carrier and 2 Ground Force units from the adjacent system are moved in to invade the neutral planets. The new planets are added, exhausted, in his player area and Steve collects 2 Trade Goods. Flags are place on the vacated, but owned, planets in the adjacent system.
Nicholas is up.
