Melissa is disadvantaged by the board layout. She needs to occupy the wormholes to satisfy her Secret Objective and the only two wormholes ("B" Pair) on the board are far away from her home system. The "A" wormhole was already determined to be dead, having no match, and is therefore treated like an empty, blank, system tile.
She decides to send her Cruiser from her Home System on a journey to one of the distant wormholes. She uses her last Command Counter from her Command Pool and activates the system with the planet "Tar'Mann" and moves the ship there. The journey begins.
Proceed to the next player, Nicholas.
