It has come to my attention that we are once again in danger of being beaten in a race to a Secret Project. Morgan plans to finish the Citizen's Defense Force in nine years. When we finish that SP in New Apolyton six years from now, he will switch to the Planetary Datalinks, which he will complete three years later. We are in danger of letting Morgan become the primary keeper of information on Planet if we do not act quickly. I propose one of three alternatives:
1) Next turn, begin production of The Planetary Datalinks in ThisBaseIsBelongToUs instead of a Supply Crawler. Divert new Supply Crawlers to TBIBTU to help production. Plan to rush build the Datalinks before Morgan can complete it in Morgan Collections.
2) Next turn, begin production of The Planetary Datalinks in Concordia rather than another Formers. Divert new Supply Crawlers to TBIBTU to help production. Plan to rush build the Datalinks before Morgan can complete it in Morgan Collections.
3) Once it is economically worthwhile (rush costs equal the number of minerals remaining times four), rush the Citizen's Defense Force in New Apolyton. Build the Planetary Datalinks in New Apolyton, diverting new Supply Crawlers to help production. Be prepared for a massive rush purchase just before Morgan completes it in Morgan Collections.
In my mind, the Planetary Datalinks is vital to our faction in order to uphold our Planetary mission and establish a legitimate Planetary government -- which would be the central repository of knowledge on Planet. Allowing a corporation, even a friendly corporation, to take on that role would be an abdication of our duty as UN Peacekeepers. For that reason, I propose that one of the above plans, or an alternative one, be adopted without delay.
