If host finds an inconsistency the player is considered to be cheating, and will be hit by the Tim Continuum. This corrects the amount of resources and imposes some penalties, which can vary from ships being flung across the galaxy and planetary fueldumps exploding to the plague hitting a player's planets
The Tim Continuum is known to sometimes strike unjustified if the host's computer has hickups during the running of the Host program or turn-files get corrupted while being e-mailed to the host. There is also a possibility Winplan corrupts your turnfile: " If you open the Planet screen, then opened the Starbase, Build Ship, Select Beams, then focus on the Planet Screen again and pressed the "+" key to move to a next planet." Winplan will then use minerals and money from the other planet to build parts on the starbase, something the Tim Continuum will strike at.
