Subjugation - If Imperial player has at least 1 Ground unit with no Imperial loyalty it is considered subjugated. Place subjugation marker on loyalty space - even on top of Rebel loyalty marker. Subjugated systems only produce the left-most resource for Building units. Imperial Loyalty replaces subjugation. Subjugated systems are Imperial even with Rebel loyalty. REBEL BASE Moving to and from - must be from or to an adjacent system or the hidden base’s system - this will give the Imperial player information about the Rebel Base location. Leaders in the Base do not prevent units moving from the system the Base is located in.

The Rebel player may also reveal the location any time they choose. 1. Flip over the probe card in the Rebel Base space, move all units from the Rebel Base space to the system on the board. 2. While revealed, the Rebel Base space cannot be used.

Rebel player can use resource icons on the Rebel Base space and deploy to the Rebel Base space as a system. When a card refers to the “Rebel Base” it is referring to the space on the game board, not the base’s system. SABOTAGE MARKERS Placed via Rebel missions - neither player can use a system’s resources and new units cannot be deployed here. It can be removed by some Imperial missions. Max: 1 per system. STRUCTURES Structures are immobile ; do not provide dice in combat; provide special abilities in combat; remaining structures after an Imperial combat victory are destroyed.
