    I strongly lean in favor of Retrograde Thrusters.

      I could go for Retrograde Thrusters or Tectonic Scanner.

        And again, partway through my first game retro just wasn't that useful, while Tectonic Scanner would have been extremely helpful.

          Yah, retro is really hit-or-miss. But that one time you're just 1 hex away from being able to reach the coast (or otherwise perfect spot) is a lifesaver.

          Tectonic Scanner is awesome.

            RT, but without having actually seen/played the game.

              It would be strange to go to a new planet and not do your best to look for new lifeforms.

                I see Jon is going the way of role play making choices rather than game play. I kinda like that.

                However, I think this again may be dependent on other choices. The larger the map we play on, the more useful Continental Surveyor will be; and as I have already said, since I don't have the game yet, I cannot judge on how useful Tectonic Scanner will be. Could someone explain to me in civ 4/5 terms what Petroleum, Geothermal, and Titanium resources do for our colony?

                My initial thought was retrograde thrusters, as I typically play OCC finding that perfect starting spot is paramount. Give me more info!
