All depends on which race you're playing :D


Fed = build Lokis
Lizards = build Lokis
Birdmen = remain cloaked and set PE = Priv
Fascists = poppers
Borg = minefields, set PE = Priv, mission = beam up fuel, trade for a loki
Crystal = webmines
Empire = minefields, set PE = Priv, mission = beam up fuel, trade for a loki
Robots = 4 x minefield
Rebels = minefields, set PE = Priv, mission = beam up fuel, trade for a loki
Colonies = Use Virgos to stop counter-mining, lay large minefields

Were mines already meantioned? That said, throw a few more mines. And don't forget about minefields ;)

Sometimes it may also be helpful, if you tow your own ships. If you win the tow (PHost) or have the lower ID of the tower, you move first. Over your own planets use beamup fuel. Never fly into orbit of planets which you don't own at least after combat. Then beamup fuel won't work.

And then, of course, get a Tachyon ship or poppers. Tachyon is more efficient though. If you trade for one, clone it at least once.

If you have cloakers, use them. As Gorn or Klingon use your ground combat to what it's worth.
